KingSing T8, a $99 Xiaomi Mi4 clone coming to an international reseller near you


kingsing T8

We are seriously loosing count of the number of companies using the Xiaomi Mi4 as inspiration for their new smartphones, but however many it is here is another name to add to the list.

$99 is what it costs for the KingSing T8, or at least it will once the phone goes on sale via resellers across the internet. This isn’t the first time we have seen a Xiaomi Mi4 clone, more is it the first time a $99 knock off has shown up, but at least Kingsing do have a reputation of producing actual physical phones behind them.

The factory making the T8 for Kingsing (and Zeaplus, No.1, DooGee, Elephone) is offering the Mi4 design to anyone who wants it and even giving customers their choice of custom specifications.

KingSing have opted for a 1.4Ghz Mediatek MT6592M octacore processor, with 1GB RAM, dual SIM support, micro SD memory expansion and 5-inch 854 x 480 resolution display. Personally we should have been happier with a MT6582, 2GB RAM and a higher resolution 720p display, but there we have it.

Like the numerous other clones the KingSing T8 comes in either black or while with a fancy metal chassis holding it all together.

    Wow, it’s the other xiaomi mi4 clone, i saw 1949deal.com will release it, http://goo.gl/Akc1c3 , see which one is better, Kingsing T8, NO.1 MI4 as xiaomi mi4 clone? i guess in the price, Kingsing T8 is worthwhile to consider as the cheapest xiaomi mi4 clone.

    Though it’s an Octa-core phone, 1GB RAM is too small. What’s the phone’s OS

    kingsing T8,Octa core processor, 5inch smartphone is a new nice budget at a very competitive price, $99! It’s a really nice Xiaomi mi4 clone, i am looking forward to it. When will it be released?

    Wow, xiaomi mi4 clone, how about No.1 Mi4? oh, only MTK6582 Quad core 1.3ghz CPU, up to $150, i can’t believe that Kingsing T8 with Octa core CPU will be up to $99. Very powerful, kingsing will be next phone manufacturer winner?

    Sometimes, knock-offs are not popular for me, but price speaks louder, wait and try for the sake of price.

    Es 1GB de RAM, 2 GB no, por lo que no es bueno para mí.

    Of all the clones I would buy the Doogee before any of them (although I did buy a No. 1 which is very good). The OEM who makes all of these clones is the parent company of Doogee.

      doogee is coming out with another clone, mt6592, 4g modem, 1gb ram, qhd resolution. It won’t be expansive from what they told me.

    Bury this f****** 6582. It’s a thirsty proccessor wiht low capabilities (gpu, 3g, gps, etc)
