Mlais have finally released their marathon munching battery phone with a new name and slightly altered specifications at a lovely low price.
Originally the phone pictured above was called the Mlais MX, but that has changed to the Mlais MX Base now that the phone is available to buy at the rather attractive low price of only $139.99. The name isn’t the only details which has changed as final specifications also reveal the inclusion of an IR remote for controlling home appliances and a Medaitek MT6735p chipset (the more potent 1.3Ghz SoC as opposed to the MT6735i running at just 1.0Ghz).
The rest of the details remain the same and that’s rather good news as it means the sub $150 smartphone boasts 2GB RAM, a 5-inch 1280 x 720 HD display, 5 mega-pixel front camera and 8 mega-pixel Sony IMX219 rear.
Like so many other phones this year, the major selling point of the Mlais MX Base is the battery size, and with a 4800mAh battery on the inside Mlais certainly have that area covered. It’s also good to see that quick charging of that huge battery has also been implemented and that the MX Base retains dual LTE SIM slots and room for a micro SD card.
To top it all off the Mlais MX Base comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop, and can be pre-ordered online now for just $139.99. For those of you interested in this phone the supported LTE bands are 800/1800/2100/2600MHz (according to this page).
