Take the design of the Note 3, shrink it down to 5-inch and mix in an octacore MT6592 chipset and you have just created the Kingsing T1! Aka the worlds most affordable octacore smartphone!
Kingsing are another up and comer from China who have created a line of affordable Android smartphones aimed primarily at markets outside of China. Looking over the official ikingsing.com website shows a variety of affordable Android phones of various sizes, however it is the octacore KingSing T1 which grabbed my attention.
Think of the Kingsing T1 as a Galaxy Note 3 mini and you will have a good idea in your mind of what to expect! The screen is a 5-inch (qHD) model, there is an 8 mega-pixel main camera with LED flash around the rear, a removable cover reveals a 2800mAh battery and there is that octacore chipset and 1GB RAM on board too!
Gizchina News of the week
The KingSing T1 is already on sale internationally, a quick Google search showed up a number of resellers offering the octacore phablet for less than $160! That’s the most affordable octacore we have seen.
Edit: KingSing have sent a rather large parcel. I will open it later today hopefully there will be a T1 inside plus some other interesting phones. Keep posted.[ Kingsing, Kingsing Facebook ]
Why do Chinese manufacturers believe that price it is the only thing that matters. There’s a threshold where cost reduction reduces functionality by more than the savings, and it looks like this device has crossed that line.
540p screen, 1GB RAM, no mention of 4G, so why would anyone want this?
Maybe because they need something affordable? I mean really, those specs aren’t that bad. There’s even a 2800mAh battery. That’s impressive for a 5 inch phone. This would be a great choice for people on a budget.
what abt for those customers where 4G has not evolved yet?
because low price has big market in need.
i have ordered this phone in March and i am expecting it next week
i dont think QHD resolution would be so bad
Since when is 5.0 inch a phablet?
