THL are rumoured to launch their 8-core Monkey King 2 later this week, will we see it launch with this redesigned logo is another question though!
THL have grown from a small Shanzhai company to a mid sized phone manufacturer and rival to larger brands. Even with this growth, and the opening of physical stores across China, THL have struggled to shake the clone image. The issues was partly to do with their designs (which they have now fixed) and partly their logo which looked very much like Taiwanese company’s HTC.
From newly published images we see that the Monkey King 2 could be the first THL to ship with an all new logo. The new logo may not be the best but at least it is more original than the last one.
As for the Monkey King 2, the phone will get an 8-core MT6592 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB memory, 13 mega-pixel camera and FHD display with Gorilla Glass 3. The design of the new phone takes inspiration from the Xiaomi Mi3 and Sony’s Experia phones.
