This Xiaomi Hongmi clone costs just $65!

Have you ever heard of Telsda? Neither had we until this up and coming phone maker launched its very own Xiaomi Hongmi Clone for just $65 in China.

A combination of component price drops, specification choices and blatant copying has allowed Telsda to launch a convincing Xiaoim Hongmi knock off in China costing just 399 Yuan ($65)! The company have also launched the phone on sale through their official Taobao store and listed specifications which include a 4.7-inch display, 1GB RAM, quad-core processor, dual-SIM support and 8 mega-pixel rear camera.

The official specifications are a little confusing though as some info claims the chip is a 1.3Ghz quad-core MT6582 chipset while screen shots and benchmarks say it’s a 1.2Ghz MT6589 chip. Either way the price/performance of either option is tempting!

The Telsda is available in a number of colours including black, red, white, yellow and more. An international launch has not been announced yet.

    somehow you forgot to mention completely different display 540×960 compared to 720p of Xiaomi Hongmi or FAEA F1

    although for 399RMB it sounds like great deal, but maybe too good to be truth, otherwise can’t explain why it would have only 77 buyers in last 30 days and why when searching in chinese for exactly same model Telsda A9600 as they mention specifications you have zero results on Taobao and they don’t mention this name even in the title of the advertisement, I would not be surprised if you would end up with phone with even lower resolution (think 800×480 max.), much lower real RAM (think 512MB max.), fake CPU (more like dual core 1GHz) and Android 2.3 skinned to 4.2, because these specs for 399RMB hardly can be real, so don’t really udnerstand what’s the point of posting article like this, people unaware of fake phones will have really high expactations how low can go price although it’s not really possible, real phone with specs like ina rticle is more like 600-800RMB

    this Telsda T719 if real looks more interesting:
    519RMB/85USD = MTK6592 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM, 5.5″ 720p, TD-SCDMA, Android 4.2.2
    768RMB/125USD = MTK6592 2GHz (??), 2GB RAM, 4GB ROM, 5.5″ 720p, WCDMA, Android 4.2.2 . com/item.htm?id=19682662740

    people seem to be satisfied although they said it’s really dual core and not quad core and antutu only 7700 so for sure fake CPU, I am pretty sure it would be same with mobile in article

    If anyone buys one of these low priced phones, please keep us updated. I’m interested in buying several to bring as gifts to the Philippines, when we visit her family. If they are junk or fake, I’d rather not waste the $ or time… Thanks guys.

    It seems like a W450 is a better deal, possibly real 85-100$ quad core with shipping international. And this is 65$ for china only, every agent sells for 120+ makes it useless.
