First look: Neo M1 5.99mm super slim, Sony Camera equipped phone


Neo are working on their own quad-core MT6582 mid-range Android smartphone which could possibly be named the Ne0 M1 with, Gorilla glass display, dual Sony cameras and slim design.

Neo’s last big  phone was the quad-core Neo N003 which was good device but launched far to late in the day when compared to phones from JiaYu, UMi and others. Neo are still behind the pack for a 2014 phone, but the new device might be worth the wait.

According to our sources at Neo the M1 (this name might change) is manufactured from all high quality parts. Both cameras are from Sony, the display is supplied from a company in South Korean and the main PCB comes from the same factory as the Xiaomi Redmi’s!.

The Neo Leo Poppy is a quad-coreMT6582 Android device similar to the Huawei Honor 3C, Zopo ZP700, and iOcean X7 HD, with a design inspired by the slim Huawei Ascend P6. From the render we can see the body is narrow and compact with small bezels. It appears that the battery will be built-in to the phone as the sides have SIM and SD card trays.

Specifications include a 1.3Ghz processor, 1GB RAM, 5-inch IPS 1280 x 720 display, 8 mega-pixel rear Sony camera, 5 mega-pixel front, 2000mAh battery and all packed in to a brightly coloured 5.9mm body.

A launch date and price hasn’t been confirmed yet, but let’s hope we aren’t waiting all that long for this sexy little phone to go on sale.

    why does every new china phone’s design similar to iNew V3?!
    is it because lack of creativity OR because there is china and they just like to make Clone phones?!
    for real , umi x1 pro, neo N1 , JiaYu G6… why?!

      Actually they are either similar/copy to Huawei Ascend P6 or the Vivo X3.

        At least you can tell apart inew v3 from ascend p6. iNew applied some small unique changes on v3 ( such as it’s special home button, small wholes on both sides of the bottom, position of the camera …)
        But these new ones….

    I think the black version looks more sexy and also I think they should adopt using a virtual keys instead of capacitive keys because sometimes it ruins the whole design
