Another Chinese player looking to make it big on the budget smartphone arena, Yepen, have come up with what they think is a cost effective phablet.
The device comes with specifications standard for a sub $150 phone, which includes the 1.3GHz quad-core MT6582 processor like the $82 JiaYu G2F, but with a much larger 5.5-inch IPS screen of unknown resolution. Other specifications include 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM, 8 mega-pixel rear shooter and a 2 mega-pixel front and a 2,100mAh battery. The device will, however, have support limited to China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA networks. Like many other devices coming from China, this Yepen phone will run on the Aliyun OS.
The phone is expected to be available soon, with a price tag of 888 Yuan ($145)
