Believe it or not, but there is still room in China for another $130 quad-core machine, and this one is by far the best looking we have seen yet! Full details of the Beidou Red Pepper here!
Beidou are no stranger to the sub 1000 Yuan phone market. The first phone they launched was the worlds cheapest dual-core phone when launched 2 years ago, and was quickly followed by a number of quad-core models.
The Beidou Red Pepper, though is not only the best looking Beidou phone to date, but it is also one of the better designed $130 phones we have seem so far! Before drooling over the body, let’s take a look at the hardware. Up front there is a 5-inch 1280 x 720 display, a quad-core MT6582 processor and 1GB RAM take care of performance and 13 mega-pixel rear, 5 mega-pixel front cameras are just what we like to see on affordable smartphones!
Gizchina News of the week
On to the design, well the Red Pepper sure doesn’t look like a $130 phone, and (in our opinion) is much better looking than what Xiaomi, Huawei or iOcean have to offer. Narrow bezels and little overhang top and bottom ensure a compact size of 143.3 x 70.3 x 8.7mm, while the patterned rear reminds us of the UMi Cross and Nexus 4.
The retail price for the Beidou Red Pepper will go on sale for 799 Yuan, but 1000 units of the phone will be on sale for only 698 Yuan as a limited offer.
