iOcean bring the X7 back as the iOcean X7S-T, for Turbo


iOcean’s X7 has proven to be a very difficult phone to kill, even with the launch of the new iOcean X8, new models of the popular X7 continue to appear.

The original iOcean X7 caused a storm around the world. The phone, which did look a little like the Oppo Find 5, had a 5-inch 1080 display, quad-core processor, 13 mega-pixel camera and 2GB RAM.

We’ve seen new versions of the iOcean X7 launch this year, first with the HD and then with the X7S, and now we have a new version! Introducing the iOcean X7S-T!

For this model iOcean have mixed the hardware of the HD and S to create a more powerful phone. The emphasis is on power with the new edition so the processor is an octacore MT6592 and there is 2GB RAM. Thats more than enough power to be pushing around images on the 720 HD display and should be up to the task of saving photos quickly from the front 5MP and rear 8MP sensors.

As with all X7 models the iOcean X7S-T has space for dual SIM cards, a micro SD card, runs on GSM and WCDMA networks and have even been updated to Android 4.4 Kitkat.

It will be interesting to see how well the new X7 sells, when the iOcean X8 Mini is also due on sale soon too.

    Wait a second… “Turbo”? Are you really sure? Because the only difference to X7S is the lower pixel 720p display instead of 1080p. I think the real meaning of T is “Teen”, not Turbo. Teen for 720p.

    iOcean X8 would be such appealing phone if it wasn’t a huge iPhone. Don’t phone makers understand looking exactly the same as popular brand is bad thing? Elephone have right idea, with quite unique phone designs a lot of the time. Not iOcean

      X8 looks more like xperia z than an iphone.

      Oh wait today anything that looks like a slab is an iphone clone, why I just had an iphone bread this morning.

        Usually, I’d agree with you, people comparing stuff like Huawei’s Emotion UI to apple just because it doesn’t have app drawer, or that time when GSMarena said Flyme was like iOS, or people saying Meizu MX phones were like iPhones just because of circular button at bottom, or Acer Liquid X1 being called a Galaxy S5 clone just because it has a perforated rubbery back (as if original Nexus 7 never had that)
        But basically everything about this is like oversized iPhone 4. same metal band around edge with lines in same places, logo on back in same place, camera and flash in same position, same glass front and back. I like design of this, but I don’t really want people looking at me walking around with this and saying ‘is that a giant iPhone?’ because I’m sure uneducated phone users would immediately think that.

          You’re assuming most people think like you, but you’re about the first person I’ve seen who think X8 looks like an iphone.

          I suggest to go and take a look at Xperia Z line.

            I know for sure people would think this was giant iPhone. Australia is not very phone-knowledgable country, something like 50% of phones at my school are iPhones and most of them would have trouble naming recent phones from brands as well known as Nokia, and Sony. I’ve also seen number of other chinese phone review websites saying it looks like iPhone or Xperia Z as you mentioned. I suggest if anything it just looks like Xperia phone to you rather than iPhone because of its size.

    Did they upgrade the screen? I loved my X7 but I cracked the corner of the screen when a beer glass tipped over on it (pretty lame way to break it) and its totally irreparable even in the phone markets in China. I wish I’d bought something with better glass, big regret.

      Its like £50 for a new screen and super easy to replace…
      It is indeed a shame the glass is so fragile tho

    It is a pity that at least on mine, the GPS is so awful. I’ve tried all the software tricks to no avail.
