GooPhone V92 pro is a turbo charged iNew V3 with octacore processor and 4G LTE


goophone v92 pro

The GooPhone V92 takes the popular iNew V3 and gives it a whole new lease of life with top of the range hardware, but are these specs accurate or is it too good to be true?

If you were to look at the photo above you would say that it shows the iNew V3, a 5-inch Android smartphone with quad-core MT6582 processor, however you would be wrong.

This phone is in fact the GooPhone V92 pro, a phone built around the iNew chassis, but with a much higher (and difficult to believe) level of specifications. For example the standard processor has ripped out and replaced with a 1.7Ghz MT6592 chipset, there is 2GB RAM rather than 1GB, 32GB of internal memory , plus it is claimed to support 4G LTE (although the MT6592 chipset cannot!).

goophone v92 specifications

Not everything has changed though. The screen is still a 5-inch 720p unit with Corning Gorilla Glass, the rear camera is the same 13 mega-pixel, there is NFC and most worrying of all the phone has the same 1830mAh battery as the quad-core version!

We don’t know what to make of this phone. Did someone update the GooPhone site ahead of the MT6592 launch and haven’t bothered to fix it, or is this a phone which will launch with the newer MT6595 chipset which does have 4G LTE? Either way you can see the full specifications here where the phone is priced at $350!

    considering the v3 itself does not have the hardware they talked about (still a good phone), its more likely that Goo have just taken the standard v3 and changed the firmware to show different processor and ram (been done before and will no doubt happen again).
    It would be nice if for once phone manufacturers would just be really honest and get things the way they should or could be.
    This phone will soon be outclassed by phones that really are as thin as the V3 was supposed to be, with hardware as good if not better than the V93 is supposed to have yet with a battery that should last a day.

    LTE is probably a hoax and atleast for me there is no reason to buy MT6592 in a 1280×720 phone (becuase MT6582 would be capable of this resolution aswell)

    I don’t need LTE and octacore. Price is too high though. The battery is a joke. That’s the only reason why I dont go for the Inew V3. Would pay even more for a 2500mAh battery. But there is no option. So stupid to go for a thin phone, when the battery is a let down. I, like many other, prefer a thicker phone with a stronger battery.

    I think you can add modem that supports 4G to any SoC! But that’s just my guess! 🙂
