A pro phone at a low price? Well that is what ECOO are billing the ECOO Shining Pro as after announcing official pricing for their latest smartphone.
If you had said to us a year or so ago that a sub $200 phone could offer an 5.5-inch display, 2GB RAM and octacore processor while maintaining a 13 mega-pixel camera we would have politely asked just how much you had drunk, but this is the situation we are already starting to find ourselves in!
Technology has moved on and pricing has dropped so now it is possible for phones to cost a fraction of what they once would have.
Start up ECOO have been promoting their ECOO Shining Pro for a month or so now, and as a launch date is fast approaching (our sources say it is days away), the ECOO team have finally released final official pricing.
For $169.99 the E02 is a low-cost phone, but with a 5.5-inch display, 2GB RAM 13 mega-pixel main camera, octacore processor and nice design it looks, on paper, to be a great buy too.
So far only pre-production versions of the phone have been released to press, final production phones are said to be better made and heading to phone stores very soon.
