The Longrich 2 64bit phone is what we call a real Xiaomi Redmi Killer


If you have never heard of Longrich you are totally forgiven as neither had I until today when their first phone (to my knowledge) and first true Xiaomi Redmi destroyer hit the Chinese social media.

Chinese phone makers have a real hard time trying to keep up with Xiaomi. Most small factories simply cannot afford to sell their phones at cost which has allowed Xiaomi to run away with many of their potential customers.

It’s not impossible to compete though as phone maker Longrich are now proving with their new 6.5-inch phone. 6.5-inch might be to large for some of you but if you are a fan of large screens keep reading as the specs are amazing.

The display is a 1920 x 1080 FHD panel, with processing coming from the new 64bit octacore MT6572 chip which boasts FDD-LTE support. Memory is 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, there is also room for an SD card, 3300mAh battery and 13 mega-pixel camera.

The price for all these amazing features? Just 699 Yuan, around $114 for Chinese customers! What do you guys think of those specifications?

    Might as well get a 7 inch tablet and use it as phone. Seriously at 6.5 inches I’d describe it as a pocket killer as you have a high chance of your pocket bursting.

      The difference is only in the name and can you get a 7 inch device with similar specs for less?No you can’t .

      • Marius Cirsta
        November 9, 2014

        No, you can’t get a similar device, a 7 inch tablet that is with a 64 bit processor but that’s because as far as I know there are not that many 64 bit CPUs out there yet.
        Is this Longrich 2 launched though ? Can it be bought. It would indeed be nice to use as a tablet but not as a phone.

        • realjjj
          November 9, 2014

          Ignore the SoC and you still can’t get 1080p, 2GB RAM with 3G for that price.
          And what exactly is a phone? It’s not about voice anymore, if you want voice you can use a 10$ dumbphone.The name is not relevant anyway, call it a tablet, a phone a PC who cares.

            True, it’s still a good deal but let’s not forget this is the price in China so it will be about $150 for international buyers.
            Right now you can get a Teclast P79HD with about the same specs ( except for the SOC ) for $150.
            Anyway it’s a nice device indeed, I was just saying I don’t see it as a phone though you could probably carry it around somehow.

            • realjjj
              November 9, 2014

              No the Teclast doesn’t have 2GB RAM ,32GB on NAND and 13MP cam.
              The extra 1GB RAM and 16GB NAND costs maybe 15-16$ (for them to buy) and the better cam adds a bit more.

              EDIT: the Teclast P79HD #G seems to have 2GB RAM and then only the extra NAND and better cam would add 9-10$.

    MT6572 mentioned in the article is pretty obsolete quad-core… 64bit should be called 6752.

    • realjjj
      November 9, 2014

      It actually is MT6752 (eight A53 cores) not the MT6572 that is dual core A7.

    It doesn’t launch i guess. It is too difficult for them to sell it at this price point & survive. just a hype i guess..

      Think so too. Even if it does take off, it just can’t survive.

          Because it’s annoying. It’s big, we know. We don’t need everyone pointing out how big it is, and we don’t need people insisting they know what’s the best size for others.

          • desponent
            November 10, 2014

            Call them out when they actually dictate what other should like but most of them are just stating their distaste on it as far as I can see here. I suggest to stop caring about what other people like/not like, it’ll make your day better.

    Sony tried this with the Xperia Ultra Z and that didn’t work out too well and heads have rolled.

    However, with these old eyes of mine, a phone this size isn’t out of the question. But as always, no 4G in the U.S. on these phones. Still, if I could get this for $114 I’d be tempted to give it a whirl.

    Will be watching for your review.

    P.S. Guess I’d need a manbag for a phone this size.

      Chines devices didn’t had LTE and that’s why you couldn’t do LTE. Now they are starting to and in this case we have no clue what bands they support so anything is possible.

    • balcobomber25
      November 11, 2014

      Most of these phones aren’t market to or ever intended to be sold in the US, they are strictly for the Asian markets where big phones are very popular. I live in Thailand nearly year round and I know and see several people who use 6+ inch phones on a daily basis. They love them here.

    The problem with these “killer” phones is the software ends up coming no where close to the phone they are trying to “kill”. They can match the specs of the Redmi but they will never come close to MIUI which is the real star of the show with Xiaomi phones.
