Phone maker iOcean have teased an ultra thin alloy chassis for a mystery new smartphone.
Just as everyone was settling in to watch the battle of the Mediatek flagships i.e the JiaYu S3, Elephone P7000 and iOcean MT6752, iOcean have thrown a curve ball and teased the chassis of a new device which is obviously not the MT6752 Rock!
iOcean have just begun offering their octacore, 64bit MT6752 phone with 3GB RAM for pre-sale. The phone boasts a 5.5-inch FHD display, LTE and all round great hardware which we simply cannot wait to compare with the JiaYu S3 we have already reviewed.
While the iOcean MT6752 is a powerful phone it is hardly a good looker, which is where their new ultra thin device might come in to play. All we know for sure is that the body appears to be slim, possibly 6mm, and has an iPhone look to it. If iOcean want this new phone to be competitive they they are going to have to opt for a 64bit Mediatek chipset, 5-inch+ 1080 display, and LTE support.
Over the past few months we have seen more phone makers produce thinner “fashion phones” and their is even rumour that OnePlus will launch such a phone this year, perhaps this is iOcean’s attempt at getting in on the action early?
