THL have had a long hiatus from the limelight but they hope to capture our attention once again with the release of the new THL 2015 at MWC this year.

The last time THL really grabbed our attention was with the THL 5000. The THL 5000 boasted a great list of features from 5000mAh battery and fast charging to an octacore processor and 2GB RAM. Overall the phone was a good piece of kit only let down early on by poor Android optimizations.

So that was then, what about now? Well THL have let us know that they plan to be at MWC in Barcelona this year with an all new phone the THL 2015 and the THL 5000T.

What we know about the THL 2015 so far is that it will run a 64bit MT6752 chipset, with 2GB RAM and feature a fingerprint scanner. The phone in the teaser above shows a metal chassis, with what appears to be a fingerprint scanner below the main camera. The size of the phone, and pricing is not yet know,

The image below is the THL 5000T smartphone, specifications of this new device are currently unknown but it is likely to have a large 5000+mah battery.

    The 2015 teaser image actually looks fairly good. There’s not really much to see, but it looks like the frame may be metal this time around. The 5000T looks like someone surgically moved the location of the camera to the top centre and added more speaker holes. The new, shiny logo is nice though.

      Vivo has shown off some mid range phones this month. We are just getting to the early season of phone reveals. Over the next few months several new flagships will be announced. The other branches of BBK (OPPO and One Plus) haven’t announced anything concrete (other than rumors and “spy” photos) about their new flagships either. All of those will come out around February/March.

    The last really good THL phone in my oppinon was the Monkey King. Since then there phones have just become bland and dull. If the 4000 and 5000 didn’t have those huge batteries they would be one of a hundred low to mid range phones that you can get for under $150. At one point THL was designing some of the most stylish and advanced phones in China, they need to get back to those days.

      Which 150$ phone has gorilla glass 3 with ogs, 1080p IPS screen, and Sony IMX135 with 2.0 aperture camera module?

        Just doing a quick search I found the following (some were as much as $165)

        Kolina K100
        Newman K18
        Umi Cross
        Zopo ZP980
        TCL/Alcatel Idol X
        UMI X2
        Zopo C2
        iOcean X7
        THL W11

        And then there is a host of 720P screen phones which offer just as good of a display especially on a 5 inch or under screen like the iNew V3.

          Are you sure those are all $150 and with MTK6592 at least? Because most, if not all, of them aren’t.

            The most expensive one on that list that I found was the Kolina K100 which was $170, every other phone was under that. Like I said without the 5000mAh battery its not worth the $250-270 that same places charge for it.

              I doubt it, even if they all use MTK6589 (they are) they usually sell it higher. Try buying it from those seller and see if you get the phone.

    I’m done with THL, their THL T6 Pro Reboot King fiasco was the last drop of the bucket, I had to sell them at the same price I got them and offering no warranty.

    Not sure what’s so good with Find 7/OPO design. But okay.
