Exclusive: iNew V3 complete specifications, everything you need to know!


Chinese phone maker iNew have just raised the bar! Their latest smartphone the iNew V3 is a true flagship phone with amazing styling and hardware! Full specifications of this 6.5mm phone here!

iNew V3

iNew have launched a number of smartphones this year, specifically targeting international phone buyers with their low prices, ease of availability and cost-effective hardware. No matter how wallet friendly previous iNew phone were though, they could never be described as good-looking, well not until the launch of the iNew V3 that is!

iNew V3 design

The iNew V3 looks like nothing else in the current iNew line up. The sleek body and rounded ends remind us of the Huawei Ascend P6, but that’s about it every other aspect of the design is original!

Starting at the front we have a 5-inch display, nestled either side by narrow screen bezel edges. The black, glass front panel is a nice contrast to the white rear which wraps over the phone at the top and bottom, and the silver sides where physical buttons are located.

A volume rocker is in easy reach when held in your right hand, while a small, round power buttons takes it’s place on the left.

Turn the phone over and we get a simple white rear with logos identifying NFC support and a rear 13 mega-pixel camera with LED flash.

Speakers are housed in the base of the phone and the 3.5mm headphone jack in the top. Overall dimensions of the phone are 142.5 x 70.8 x 6.5mm with the V3 weighing in at just 128g.

iNew V3 display

iNew have gone down the 5-inch 720p route for the iNew V3 with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The display is an OGS (One Glass Solution) panel making it around 30% thinner than standard, and gets a scratch resistant finish thanks to Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

While most phone makers would go for a 1080 display, iNew have gone for a lower res display to reduce the overall price of the phone while adding neat features such as ultra-sensitve touch allowing wet fingers or gloved hands to work with the display.

iNew V3 Processor

Another reason for using the 1280 x 720 display is so iNew could make use of Mediatek’s MT6582 quad-core processor. We have already seen this 1.3Ghz chipset perform very well in similar phones with Antutu benchmarks of up to 17,000 points.

The processor is a budget high-performance model which supports up to 720p displays, giving you great performance at a good price and leaving room in the budget for updated camera hardware.

The MT6582 also gives the phone dual-sim support, in this case support for GSM and WCDMA 3G networks.

iNew V3 Memory

1GB RAM and 16GB memory might be the only real disappointing features of an otherwise great looking and well specced phone. In use 1GB should be enough for most of us on a daily basis, but 2GB would also give you that extra boost need for gaming and multitasking.

16GB of built in memory is a shame, but hopefully the phone will support SD card expansion (we have been unable to learn this yet).

iNew V3 Camera

The V3 get’s better than standard camera’s when compared to similar phones. In fact the main camera on the V3 is better than those found on many ‘flagship’ devices! A Sony Exmor RS sensor has been chosen to perform main photo taking duties. The 13 mega-pixel sensor is equipped with a large F/2.0 aperture, 28mm wide-angle lens, IR filter and there is a Philips LED flash for night photo.

Those of you who enjoy a selfie will be happy to learn the V3 has a 5 mega-pixel F/2.2 camera which should be more than enough for posing in the coffee shop or making a video call.

    V3 while the first photo mentions V6??
    Very good looking phone imo, but will probably be too expensive to get from resellers. Lets hope it gets launched internationally.

    • Ooopppss I’ll fix that now

      • Sarathy Sps

        is tat phone working with india sim or not????

  • yogicube

    can you post the source or where i can purchase this phone?
    i saw one @dx.com but specs dont match.

  • Airyl

    1830mAh battery? Will it last? I’m not too sure. The phone looks really good though.

    Also, are the speakers on the bottom or is it that tiny strip on the back?

  • Hellvetta

    Design is great! But I will wait for iNew V3S with 2 Gb/32 Gb, 2700 mAh battery and thicker 7,8 mm. For 200$. International.

    • Scherpenseel

      You got a source for this statement? o.O sounds pretty nice!

      • Hellvetta

        Oh, no, I’m not insider 🙂 it is usual chinese manufacturers practics, imho.

    • Chigon Tech

      iNew V3s is not 2Gb/32Gb, It will be qHD 1GB/4GB and will take time. If you really like the design and waiting for just 2GB/32GB than please don’t trust on rumors.

  • Smalllllbattery

    What the… fuuuuu…1830mAh battery.

    What a major disappointment!

    • it’s design is too slim so that it can not install a thicker battery.

  • Scherpenseel

    Hi Andy,

    Looks like a beautifull phone!

    But how come you say there is nothing on the price or release date, while I can find a number of sites that already sell and ship this phone? are these trustworthy?

    Some examples:

    • coolicool has the cheapest iNew V3 with lowest price gurantee,my friend

  • Wow what a design!

  • DanielSchuldenfrei

    Andy, inewmobile.com mention’s sd card support and even has a picture of the phone with the back cover removed so I assume it’s safe to say sd cards are supported.
    Any thing you know about a possible upgraded version with 2gb and an mt6592?

  • Raymond

    Shucks! Already outdated!! Can’t complain much for the price though.

    Ah well, next one.

  • ailkayu

    Hi Andy, any info on new 6592/6582 supports both wcdma and chineese td-scdma simultaneously? so does this inew v3.

  • chuckdaly

    Wow! Great design for a smartphone. I can overlook the small battery, 720p display, and lack of 4G, but I don’t know if I could buy an android phone with only 1 GB of ram, regardless of price. I’ll gladly pay $300 for a model with 2GB of ram.

  • Eilon

    Guys, you’re a bit exaggerating

    This is the best phone under 200$. Please remember it doesn’t have an FHD screen to feed with energy, so the battery should be fine.

    I’m waiting for the next generation of Chinese phones, so this charm could be a decent solution.

    BTW, being an expert in china-phones (according to my facebook friends) I recommended the jiayu g4. I believe this one will take over as my best choice (and I love the jiayu’s batteries).

  • trapchan

    a mix between Xperia Z, iPhone 5 and lumia 925
