Wolverine seems to be on the minds of manufacturers of late. Indian giant Micromax recently roped in Hugh Jackman (the real identity behind the on-screen Wolverine) as their brand ambassador, and now we have the Solomon W1 which is essentially a Wolverine-styled handset.
As mentioned, the device will look to grab some of the market share currently enjoyed by Hongmi, the $130 quad-core smartphone from Xiaomi. The Solomon W1 will come with the same 4.7-inch screen as the Hongmi, but with a lower, qHD resolution. Other specifications of the phone include – 1.3GHz quad core MT6582 processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM + microSD slot, 8 mega-pixel rear camera, 2 mega-pixel front camera and a 2,000mAh battery.
Gizchina News of the week
The device will have a metal clad body which adds another dimension to the value proposition of the phone. Powered by Android v4.2.2, the Solomon W1 will sell for 799 Yuan ($130) in China. Would you go for Wolverine or is Xiaomi’s Mitu (their mascot) too hard to get over?[Source]
Any idea of a release date or international availability with resellers???
Classy looking phone at a great price. I would degfinetly park my SGS3 on the shelf for this phone 🙂
Not sure, since international resellers usually concentrate on the Jiayus and the Xiaomis!

To be able to buy in China before Dec 4 either physically or online.
Firstly does new 8-core MT6592 support LTE?
Can u suggest any new 8-core MT6592 OR Snapdragon 800 But need to have 4G LTE Band 3 (1800mhz) and Band 7 (2600 Mhz) support to work in Singapore.
