Here are the first up close, detailed photos of the iOcean X8 octacore phablet!
Of the many (and there are a lot) Chinese phones to launch in the next few months, the iOcean X8 is one of the devices which has really caught the imagination of large screen phone fans.
iOcean have been keen to keep details as secret as possible ahead of the official launch, but we have managed to get the following exclusive hands on photos of the 5.7-inch, Gorilla Glass phablet.
These are the first photos of an operation iOcean X8 which show the X8 running a Lewa Android ROM an a rather sharp-looking 1920 x 1080 display.

The photos also show the Gorilla Glass front and rear panels which make up the stylish body of the X8, a SIM card tray in the top left hand corner and a neatly recessed rear 14 mega-pixel camera and LED flash.
We have asked iOcean for further details including a price and launch date and await their answer. In the meantime what do you think of the iOcean X8 from these photos?[ iOcean.cc, iOcean Facebook ]
Every day delivers a good news or info 🙂
Here and now, we can see a tray for one SIM card…what about the second SIM?
Hey Andy! everybody knows you’re close to iOcean’s folks, so, please, make our day: give us more specs!! 🙂
Yes Andi. I second what pa5t1s said. We need more specs of this phone. I have been eyeing it for a long time. For me, I wanna know for sure if it is the 1.7GHz or the 2.0GHz MT6592 that the phone is rocking. Plus does it have Wireless display? MHL? OTG?
I dont care much about NFC or LTE as I dont use them.
PLEEEEEEEEAAAAASE Andi 🙂
It will have Miracast because every android 4.2+ phone supports that 😀
Great. Then only thing remaining is to know if it has the higher spec MT6592 SoC.
the processor should be 1.7, like iocean said on official fb page and i guess it should have all the listed things, they are quite standard . and as far as i remember, iocean x7 had everything intact.
Immediately the same question came into my mind. Andi, please clarify this. If it is single sim, then probably it is out of my consideration. They announced dual sim. Either there is another tray or the photo is fake?
i guess the tray is double. cause i didn’t see ejectable slot on other side, on other pictures.
The ejected tray is for single sim and I can’t see any other tray beside this one. So it seems to be single sim or fake photo.
it isn’t a sure fact, there can be another sim card. but judging by the desktop, there is only one signal scale ontop. it’s strange and disappointing, but i got my mind set for the jiayu g6 more, so for me that is not a big deal after all, even helps to get decided easier.
real eyepleasing design, nice bright and crisp screen, if it only would measure 4.7 inch-5 inch, this would be my next buy..
yeah me too 😀 I prefer smaller phones…it really looks amazing.. Question: is this really lewa os/rom? I mean yeah it looks similar but not really…I ve also seen this rom on zopo devices and I want to know how its called? Can anyone help me?
It’s LEWA ROM…check http://www.needrom.com
there is a “hasee x50″ or somehow like that , which looks like a 5” clone, i’d look into that, if searching for a smaller phone
According to the hand I assume that it should be 5.5 or more.
I cant wait for them. i jest bought TCl s960…
Dual sim, non-removable battery, no SD slot (fail).
Stated on iOcean’s FB page.
No SD-slot is actually a bad choice, true 🙁 but whatelse can be done with glass on both sides… Could be a real issue is OTG is not fully functional… (reminds me of Moto G without a SD-card…too bad)
Then the choice remaining for us is jiayu G6. I don’t need a gorilla glass on the back. No SD card, non removable battery, and probably single sim… Complete disappointment. Iocean, you are loosing the game.
true, as bad as iphone LOL
With MT6595 and Dual-Sim I would buy in a heartbeat!
i love this phone….i’m waiting this since the first announce. The stylish design, very essential make the other phones like something of the past. This is the right way…stop the rounded corners, i can’t watch them anymore.
from what i see, there is no hard button backlighting?
Coolest thing from iOcean. It’s hard to compare it to other names like Xiaomi or Jiayu but seems all of them can do both things: sleek design and reasonable price.
Off topic but why do you post old news at twitter?
I see only one sim card, is that corect ? And I think he does`t have the SD-card.
my god the x8 is sexy as heck. I’ve the X7 and iOcean have REALLY stepped up their game with the x8. Would totally reccomend to everyone if only they used the snapdragon chipset.
Wow,it seems so elegant. I like the all glass design.How much would it be? If it not so expensive, it will be my next phone.
The coolest thing for iOcean is that they support WCDMA 900/2100…good news for us Europeans 🙂
Looks single sim
It is beautiful!
