Ramos Mos1: Well-known Chinese tablet maker’s first smartphone

If you’ve been a Chinese tech enthusiast for a few months or more, chances are that you’ll have heard about Ramos, which is quite a known name in the tablet space in China and otherwise.

Ramos is in the news today not for another one of its tablets, but for its first ever smartphone — the Ramos Mos1. The company has clearly focused on design, and that shows. This also means that the Mos1 wouldn’t be vying for space in the flagship category, for it is powered only by the Snapdragon 615 chipset, usually seen on entry-level to mid-range phones of late.

Here is what the Ramos Mos1 comes with:

  • 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p FHD display
  • Snapdragon 615 octa-core 64-bit SoC
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB on-board storage
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop (overlaid by MOSUI)
  • 13 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 5 mega-pixel front facing camera
  • 3050mAh battery

The Mos1 almost shares its specs sheet with the Xiaomi Mi 4i (review). However, as mentioned before, it is design and build that are the USP of the Mos1 as opposed to price for the Mi 4i. But I’m not sure if that warrants a 1999 Yuan or US$322 price tag; phones like the LeTV Le 1 X600 are available in China for as low as 1499 CNY (US$241), so there perhaps isn’t enough reason for buyers to flock JD.com on August 10th to buy the Mos1.
