Thunderbird XLphone boasts 5-inch display and Qualcomm processor at $131

Thunderbird arenā€™t a brand we are familiar with but according to their online store they have been shipping Snapdragon S4 phones for $131 since Christmas here in China.

With so many phone brands in China it is quite common to come across a phone maker we have never seen before. Oddly these smaller phone makers tend to offer phones with Qualcomm chipsets at low prices (like the Guophone we covered here).

The Thunderbird Xphone is another such device which is on sale in China now for just 798 Yuan and boasts a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 8 mega-pixel main camera, 5-inch 720p display. The design isnā€™t bad either with a choice of either white/gold or black/gold, 2.98mm bezels and overall dimensions of 143 x 72.7 x 9.1mm.

We havenā€™t seen an actual photo of the Xlphone but you can see the full specifications on their store page here. It appears only a CDMA/GSM compatible version is on sale at the moment with no details of a WCDMA option.
