iocean x8 unboxing

We don’t know how they have done it, but the guys over at Mobile-Dad have managed to get hold of the iOcean X8 ahead of launch for an early unboxing!

During the unboxing the reviewers were able to confirm that the iOcean X8 has the features which we have been promised induing a fully laminated Corning Gorilla Glasss front and rear glass panels, 5.7-inch FHD display, octacore MT6592 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory, dual SIM support (WCDMA and GSM) and NFC.

iOcean have told us that the phone in these unboxing photos is a pre-production sample and has a 13 mega-pixel stacked sensor, where as the production model is reported to have a 14 mega-pixel sensor.

The X8 ships in not one but two cardboard boxes, all the more to keep the nice glass body of the phone safe and sound while shipping.

We are unsure if optional colour options will be available at launch but we have only seen black models at this time.

A glass front and rear panel sandwiches the alloy frame like a wafer thin, luxury tech sandwich. In this hands on photo we can see the USB data cable and what could be a main speaker to the right.

The alloy continues around the tops and sides where we also find the 3.5mm headphone jack, sim tray on the left and power and volume rockers on the right hand side.

As we have already seen in earlier hands on photos the X8 has a recessed camera and LED flash located on the rear, the iOcean logo and a few various safety markings along the bottom.

iOcean’s choice of alloy and glass put the iOcean X8 in the same league as other quality Chinese smartphones such as the JiaYu S2, JiaYu G6, UMi X3 and Newman K18.

Soon we will receive a review sample of the iOcean X8 and will bring you more details and hands on photos once it arrives.

    Andi what’s going on with jiayu s2 launch is it already out? That’s the phone I’m waiting for. Never got disappointed with G4 so I like jiayu products

      Ronnie, how do you rate the G4? They’ve released the octacore G4s internationally with 2Gb memory, 16Gb on board, and 3000mah battery for just shy of $200… I’m super tempted even though it’s an older design. Please give me your opinion from your own use of the original machine

    Thanks Andi for this ‘forwarded’ unboxing review: it’s already mentioned on iOcean FB’s page…and I found it a bit “light” and empty :S
    Definitely not as deep and informative as yours!

    that’s single sim , without a doubt.

    • April 9, 2014

      It’s a dual SIM. Each sim goes in to the same extended sim tray, much like the solution Vivo used in the X1S

        i thought so too, but there is only one gsm signal scale and that is the second time we see this fact.
