We’ve seen plenty of challenges made on the Xiaomi Redmi, but few have actually managed to knock the device from the top of the mid-range podium, but now ECOO are here and have some big ideas.

The Xiaomi Redmi at 799 Yuan is damn good value for money! It has a good screen, good processor and feature rich MIUI ROM, and it is about time something better came along. When the Redmi first arrived it was unbelievable value, but now we know much more is possible at this low cost.

Gizchina News of the week

Chinese smartphone start-up ECOO have been in touch and announced on their Facebook page that they will be launching a new phone for just 699 Yuan. Full specifications are not known but we can confirm that 2 of the highlights of the phone will be an octacore Mediatek processor and 1080 FHD display!

Pricing is for China for now, but even if the international cost jumped slightly higher we still have a very good chance this phone could cost below $150!

We’ll keep our eyes out for updates from this new brand as they release more details.

    Low cost great specs seems to be the name of the game right now and I for one love it. Best wishes to ECOO.

    But the Xiaomi Redmi in India costs only 5999/- which is only 600 Yuan.

    I think the most important point here is the ROM, getting good hardware at this price point is slowly becoming the norm, it’s always the software that let’s it down. Interesting to see what they have in mind for it.

    It could be mt6592 chipset, besides there are different 1080p screens with many differences (viewing angles, colour reproduction, brightness, etc).

    Could end up the same way as Viro 🙂

    ummm…. so is this a big deal anymore? aren’t there Android One phones selling for $100 with a bunch of extra Google benefits?
