OrientPhone 890T sub-$180 Quad-Core Phone Measures 6.9mm

The OrientPhone 890T combines style, power and price into one impressively small package. Measuring in at an ultra-thin 6.9mm it contains the newest MT6582 quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3Ghz and a 5.0 inch 1280×720 HD screen for under $177.00.

Like other recent OrientPhones it also utilizes Air Gesture Controls and features a Smartsleep Flip Cover, a steel flap attached with hinges that when flipped over puts the phone into sleep mode while leaving a space open that displays the time and date.

The 890T also features 1GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage which is upgradeable up to 16GB, plus a 8MP rear and 5MP front camera. To put it in international phone terms, those stats put it in the range of the Galaxy SIII only with more features, a lower price and a thinner profile.

The OrientPhone 890T is running Android 4.2.2 out of the box and is one of several phones that have been recently released while utilizing the MT6582 quad-core processor to be priced under $200. The OrientPhone 890T however, is the first to be so thin while doing it. Contrary to the OrientPhone’s claim, there is a slightly thinner quad core phone on the market, the Huawei Ascend P9 comes in at a tiny 6.1mm, but the OrientPhone 890T still manages to be impressively thin at less than half the price.
