HiLive Hi6 Note 3 clone gets 2Ghz octacore processor and stylus

hilive hi6 octacore

HiLive have announced their HiLive Hi6 Note 3 clone will go on sale with the faster 2.0Ghz octacore MT6592 chipset.

Currently there are very few manufacturers using Mediatek’s 2.0Ghz octacore chipset, with most opting for the 1.7Ghz chipset. For those of you wanting as much power as possible from a Medaitek device it leaves you only 2 choices, either the TCL IdolX+ or this, the new HiLive Hi6 phablet.

Gizchina News of the week

The Hi6 is yet another Note 3 clone, but this time with inclusion of a stylus which neatly tucks away in the rear of the phone. The Hi6 is also powered by the most powerful MT6592 SoC available on the market today and get’s 2GB RAM and an option of either 16GB or 32GB memory.

Like the GooPhone N3 we reviewed last week, the HiLive Hi6 has a 5.7-inch FHD 1920 x 1080 display and 13 megapixel main camera. Other features include a 8 mega-pixel sefie approved front facing camera, gesture controls and 3000mAh battery. There is even mention of LTE support and Android 4.3 on the spec sheet, but we doubt this is accurate.

HiLive are selling the Hi6 through their own site here in China starting at 1799 Yuan, international resellers will also offer the device soon.

    Looks good, Now if only it had 3 Gb of ram!

      2GB of RAM is more than you need. No need for 3GB. The phone sure does look great and it does support Miracast. I am gonna buy this one since it has the 2.0GHz variant of the MT6592 + 32GB ROM and also Miracast and OTG.

        I have Galaxy S4 and that 2 gigs of ram is not taking me anywhere! I want a phone on which I can be playing a very high end game as well as surfing the web, YouTube and some minor apps and all this SHOULD NOT CLOSE when I receive a call!

        • March 3, 2014

          You should probably go and get a phone with a minimum of 16GB or RAM.

          Seriously are you really NUTS? Why would you ever wanna be playing a HIGH END game, surfing the web, running youtube and all whatever and also be answering a call at the same time?

          This is called a smartphone and not some 4th gen hexacore Intel Core i7 gaming rig with 32GB of RAM, nVidia GeForce 880 GPU and SSD HDD.

          Wake up from your dreams man and treat your phone as a phone and not as a Workstation Computer.

          Calling it SMART doesnt exactly transform it into a SUPER COMPUTER.

            Why would I? Why shouldn’t I?? I am NOT asking for 16 gigs of Ram. I am asking for just 3! I have a phone with 3 gigs of ram now and I have seen the kind of difference it makes!

    “For those of you wanting as much power as possible from a Medaitek device it leaves you only 2 choices, either the TCL IdolX+ or this, the new HiLive Hi6 phablet.” [quoted] Not really true #Andy, i know that the Mlais Mx69T PRO has also the MT6592 at 2Ghz, and now the Goophone S5 clone too 😉

      hi Nahum, long time we didnt talk.
      the Mlais is only a 1.7ghz like u can see in their official site

      These Hilife and Goophone are still not available, so only the Idolx+ is a 2ghz phone, but no sd card is a problem for many users.

    How can they have LTE with MT6592? The chipset doesn’t support it. Not unless they use an additional component!
