Changhong, known throughout China for the televisions, is attempting to break in to the Android phone market with the Changhong Z9 with impressive specs and large battery.
This isn’t the first time Changhong have launched an Android smartphone in China, but it is the first handset from the company to actually worth looking at. The Z9 is based around a 5.5-inch 1280 display wrapped in a black and gold body (and design older Chinese gentlemen will likely appreciate).
Under its ‘classy exterior’ hides some interesting guts including dual-sim support, quad-core MT6589T CPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB memory, but most impressive of all for a 9mm thick phone a 5000mAh battery. This mixture of sensible hardware and large battery should ensure some serious battery life!
So is there are catch besides the design? Yes, the price of the Changhong Z9 isn’t exactly cheap at 2499 Yuan, which is more than the Xiaomi Mi3, and put’s it in to similar price territory as the 8-core Meizu MX3 and the developers favourite Oppo Find 5!
