THL launched their new flagship Monkey King handset yesterday, but they have also quietly launched a new budget handset costing just $159.99.
We had seen quite a few spy photos of the THL Monkey King and THL 200, however the THL 100 had remained a secret right up until today! Like the other new THL phones there is an all new design, but it’s the price which has caught our attention.
Gizchina News of the week
At $159.99 the THL W100 is one of the most affordable Chinese Android phones we have seen from a larger phone maker, and they haven’t skimped on the hardware either! There is a 4.5-inch 960 x 540 display, 1.2Ghz MT6589 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
THL are shipping the W100 with a screen protector and 2 x 1800 mAh batteries which they claim will give the W100 a standby time of around 2-3 days. For those interested in picking up one of these low-cost quad-core phones head over to the Lightake store here.
