iOcean X9 will have 3GB RAM and MT6752 chipset


iocean x9

iOcean released the MT6752 Rock as a 5.5-inch flagship this year (review tomorrow), but they didn’t kill off their original ‘X’ range and plan to launch the iOcean X9.

iOcean rose to fame when the released the icon X7 a few years ago. The X7 was an instant hit packing the (then) latest Mediatek processor, and a 5-inch FHD display. The X7 was replaced with the X8, which for 2015 will make way for the iOcean X9.

iOcean had already shown official images of the X9 on their Facebook and official website, and now they have updated the product page to list a few of the hardware features of the new flagship phone.

Compared to the iOcean MT6752 Rock, the iOcean X9 will have a smaller alloy body with a smaller 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and pixel density of 441PPI.

Apps and games running on that 5-inch FHD panel will be powered by the same octacore, 64bit MT6752 chipset as found in the iOCean Rock, and with the same 3GB RAM too. With an MT6752 on board the X9 will also boast 4G LTE and a Mali T760 GPU.

Other features include a built-in infrared remote for controlling your TB, AC etc. Fast charging which can charge up to 69% faster will be included too as will GPS, Glonass, and Beidou navigation support.

iOcean appear to be slowly feeding us the full specifications and we are now waiting on camera specifications, battery size, Android version etc.

    So it’s basically their previous phone with the same internals and a smaller screen. Can’t wait to ignore it.

      That’s your opinion, many people have asked for just this here on gizchina. Not everyone is OK with 5.5 inch and some including me think 5 inch is really as far as they want to go.
      For those who want a 5 inch phone this is perfect I’d say.

      Or it is an incredibly good looking smaller phone, which is something many people outside of China want. A smaller phone that hasn’t been stripped of its power like we continue to see from many competitors.

    I, on the other hand, like the idea of a smaller size phone with the same specs as the rock… i hope the price is good.

    I really really really hope this x9 doesnt have the stupid glass back panel the x8 had, I need to upgrade my x7 elite after a friend stepped on it and shattered the glass. loved that phone and this just might be the one for me.

      I have been using an X8 as my work phone for about a month now. I have dropped from my pocket quite a few times and have barely a scratch on it.

    If it has a good battery and price is under 250 $, it´s a great option. If not, you have Honor 6 for 300 $ with the same specs

      It has a tiny (compared to specifications) battery at just 2050mAh.

    Why why no capacitive touch buttons below the display… How much patience should I have before the perfect phone becomes affordable I mean this is dumb engineering
