Bird Snapdragon HD just $150 with the new MTK6582 quad-core processor

Alongside the Bird Snapdragon XL is a new affordable HD model powered by the latest quad-core MTK6582, with WCDMA support for just $150.

We don’t what has happened over at Bird, but whatever it is we really do approve! With the launch of 2 Android smarpthone models the company who were once known as a maker of cheap feature phones has become one of the most talked smartphone makers in the Chinese tech world.

We have already posted news of the 8-core MTK6592 Bird Snapdragon XL which is their flagship device, the second phone they have launched is an affordable handset which could easily hold it’s own against the Xiaomi Hongmi!

Bird will launch the HD soon in black, white and yellow colour options.

    Hi Abbie,
    Any word on when this goes on sale – and if Bird or re-sellers will ship abroad?
    Just what I’m after!
    Thanks, Dave.

      Resellers will certainly ship abroad but not at this price. The launch should be soon.

    Hello Andy
    Do you know if prices in Hong Kong are the same as in mainland china, or is it considered overseas as I will be in Hong Kong middle of December and interested in a new phone
    Thanks Rene

      They will be slightly higher in HK unless they have a distributor.
