Octacore iOcean X7S Elite costs just $230!

Over the weekend iOcean held a low-key launch for their latest flagship phone, the octaocre iOcean X7S Elite.

iOcean’s first octacore of the year is an updated version of the the iOcean X7, a phone which made the company many new fans when it launched at the start of last year. Being an update rather than a whole new phone means the X7S Elite is visually identical to the original phone with the updates taking place on the hardware level.

Gizchina News of the week

The processor in the iOcean X7S Elite is the same 1.7Ghz octacore Mediatek unit we have seen in the Zopo ZP998 and THL T100S. This processor along with 2GB RAM should be more than enough for every app you can throw at the new phone.

Updates continue in the way of a new 5-inch LTPS 1080 display, 13 mega-pixel main camera with anti-fingerprint protection, and the new phone also boasts the ability to run either a 2000mAh or 3000mAh battery.

The iOcean X7S Elite will go on pre-sale from 21st Jan in China for just 1399 Yuan ($230), making it slightly more affordable than the Zopo ZP998.

        Cofirmed! GPS works VERY GOOD after replacing the old Antenna and adding the conductive tape ( also very important part of the mod)

            Iocean stepped in contact with android forums all over the world offering help by sending the admins or mods a whole pack of antennas depending on how many users needed one. After they received them they sent it out to the users. you have to pay privately to the admins or mods for delivery, the kit is for free. Search for a local forum and check if theres a thread about it as well. worked for me 😉 Good luck!!

    Still no LED behind the menu buttons and still no Corning glass I suppose? 🙁

    Nevertheless a very affordable price for MT6592 with FullHD display and 2GB RAM

    2000mAh is not that much, but I can’t find a 3000mAh battery for the X7S, so I was wondering if I just can replace it with the 3000mAh X7 batttery.
    Does somebody know about that?

    And what about custom firmwares? Do X7 firmwares work?
