Yesterday we reported that iOcean planned to launch the world’s best $130 smartphone, today we get a early peek at the new phone called the iOcean X7HD.
From the exterior the new iOcean X7HD is identical to the current X7. Both feature the same design and both have a 5-inch display, however a few changes in the hardware department have helped lower the price of the X7HD to the magical 799 Yuan price mark.

First up the 5-inch display has a lower 1280 x 720 resolution but remains an OGS unit. The processor has been replaced with the newer 1.3Ghz quad-core MT6582 processor which gives the iOcean X7HD Antutu scores of over 17,000, and there is an option for either a 2000mAh or 3000mAh battery option.
In the video we also get to see the steel frame the X7HD is manufactured on and get to see some nice measurements including the overall dimensions of 141 x 69 x 8.95mm with a bezel of 3.26mm.
