Top 5 octacore phones for $300 with international availability!

Remember last year when it took months for quad-core phones to reach lower price levels? Well this isn’t the case with the new breed of octacore devices and already we have some great phone for less than $300! Here are our top 5 octacore phones for under $300

While in China almost all octacore phones are available for less than $300, international customers must contend with higher prices. Still there are a lot of phones to choose from such as:

Elephone P8

Elephone’s 2nd phone to launch is also their first octacore device. The Elephone P8 feats a Note 3 style body with 5.7-inch 1080 FHD display, octacore 1.7Ghz processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

The Elephone P8 is available in either white or black and costs just $255.99, with the following coupon: prcfrog_p8

Newman K2S

For slightly more than the Elephone P8, the Newman K2 offers additional internal memory and also a more unique looking design. The Newman K2 offers a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, the same 1.7Ghz MT6592 octacore processor, plus 5 megapixel front and 13 mega-pixel rear cameras.

The Newman K2S octacore is on sale now for $269.99, with the following coupon: prcfrog_k2s

THL T200

Perhaps 5.7 and 5.5-inch just don’t cut it and you require more screen room? Then the THL T200 with 6-inch FHD 1920 x 1080 display should suit your needs perfectly. The THL T2200 has a completely unique design with 32GB built-in memory, 2GB RAM and 1.7Ghz MT6592 processor.

HDC U9592

At the other end of the price spectrum there is the HDC U9592, currently the world’s cheapest octacore Android smartphone on the market! The U9592 has a 5-inch display, 2GB RAM, 16GB memory and costs only $199.99. Of course to get such a low price corners have been cut and the display is just a 854 x 960 unit and the rear camera an 8 megapixel, but for this price it is still rather good!

Zopo ZP980+

Of all the phones listed the Zopo ZP980+ is possibly the post exciting of the bunch! The phone is basically an updated version of the 5-inch ZP980, but features a new LTPS display, 1.7Ghz Octacore processor and 14 mega-pixel rear camera!

Pricing of the Zopo ZP980+ is just $280 from certain resellers.

    No 4G? No extended batteries? Little to or no custom ROM’s, why bother?

    • January 21, 2014

      Well if this sounds appealing enough..we are working on a huge ROM list (web app) that will be released in some months..that will include – of course – lots of ROMS…Stay tuned! 😉

      The Zopo zp980+ has wcdma at 900/1900/2100Mhz. I’ve been testing mine on At&t in the US with no issues and H+ connection. I’ll have a full review up at armtvtech tomorrow.

      I believe the ZP998 also supports these freq., but might want to double check that.

        ZP998 is my first option now. Having wcdma at 900/1900/2100Mhz makes it very appealing to me.

    980+ RAM is kinda small for 2014….better wait for a 2gb upgrade. Other than that its perfect if you don’t require 850mhz 3G.

    The Samsung Galaxy S4 is only 137 mm tall. Are their any Chiness quad or octo core phones around this height? It seems most chinese manufactures can seem to make a phone as small as samsung?????????? Sure they have the same specs but they are so long!
