You can now lay back and expect a flurry of 8-core Chinese smartphone releases to take place in the coming weeks! Latest to join the 8-core bandwagon is the Green Orange NX.
The device, as expected, was released yesterday in China. Specifications include a 5.5 inch LG 1080p screen, 1.7GHz 8-core MT6592, 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM, BSI enabled SONY IMX135 13 mega-pixel rear camera with F/2.0 aperture, 88 degree wide-angle 5 mega-pixel front-facing camera, 2,900mAh battery and the usual connectivity set with the addition of NFC (via accessory). The phone will come with Green Orange’s own take on Android, i.e., MyUI 2.0.
Gizchina News of the week
A range of accessories for the phone including NFC leather holsters, smart bracelets, etc. will be made available to customers. The device will come with a heavy price tag of 2699 Yuan ($440) and will hit shelves in China on 5th December.[Source]
myui 2.0 , wtf ?
Do you want super quality and super fast Google Nexus 5 for 400$? No, thank you, I want noname phone from uncle Liao for 440$.
What are they smoking?
There are actually some advantages of this over the Nexus 5. It has a larger display, metal chassis, larger battery and (probably) better cameras than the Nexus 5. Plus, from where I come from (Malaysia), the Nexus 5 costs around $600, so I’m still better off getting “noname phone from uncle Liao” for $440.
Outside of the US, the nexus 5 is considerably more expensive, for example, I’d get the 16gb version for $500 here in Taiwan, and the 32 for $600 (USD). Uncle Liao’s phones are starting to look pretty sweet.
Nexus 5 (16 Gb) for 500 euro in Finland… Hello, Uncle Liao.
Um nothing really to see here….. next!!!
i would take this uncle liao for $350 shipped dualsim with tf slot, no more. i guess it can eventually drop the price a bit.
Considering that the nexus 5 16GB version is 900$ here, uncle Liao phones are a success in Brazil.
too expensive for me. That price is entering the established brand market.
