Exclusive: iOcean “Skyfall” phablet

We got a up close and personal first look at iOcean’s new device, a 6.44-inch phablet named the iOcean “Skyfall”.

We’re in Shenzhen this week calling in on a few companies here to see what they have got planned for the coming months. First stop was the iOcean offices where we had the chance for a hands on with their prototype phablet.

iOcean have called the phablet the iOcean “Skyfall” (I’m not sure what the makers of James Bond are going to think of that). The sample which we got our hands on was a pre-production version but sported a 6.44-inch 1080 display, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 3500mAh battery and support for OTG and MHL.

They did’t give us price details, but they did tell us that the “Skyfall” will go in to production in just 2 months.

    Aw, on the previous renders i thought it was much sleeker , this prototype appears to look kindof… crap.

    But i’m assuming it’s not the final version .

      It isn’t the final one, but it should be very similar

    It should be a great device for a phablet.

    5 inch is already too big. The only reason I’d consider going maybe 5.5 inch is to properly make use of FHD where 440 ppi is beyond the human eye’s ability to distinguish. But any bigger is well beyond overkill.

    These sizes are becoming ridiculous.

    Im very happy with my note 2 & 9300mha zerolemon ext bat. A larger handset would be fine for me, I would have no gripes about it. If you guys want small screen sizes, go back to iphones & smart cars lol… Just in case your thinking of saying it, no I’m not trying to compensate for anything, lol!

    These companies really need to start making borderless screens on these phablets like samy and others have begun to do… Dont foeget pushing the battery companies to start making larger batteries (as an aftermarket option) for these quad and octa core phablets coming out in the future, as well as 4G LTE…
