    I must say that the picture shows much wider bezels than suggested by the previously released renders. As usual.

    This is what I’ve been holding out for, as the 6752/53 SoC used in pretty much every mid range china-phone is too weak.
    I just hope the 3G/4G frequencies are not limited to Chinese needs.

      To weak for what ?

      The 6752 is powerful enough for about 95% of what the Google Play has to offer. Only the most graphically demanding games will give it trouble, and even then they are still playable on lower settings.

    the leaked price from phonearena was 177usd

    Helio X10 would be awesome.

      August 10, 2015

      if its really less than 12K INR and with good camera and sold online in India,i can see bloodbath in the smart phone market…where Note 2 is slaying all..i mean X10 at budget???..wow,go mediatek go.

    It could maybe be the first phone that has MT6755 chipset instead of the MT6795 chipset, MT6755 chipset is clocked at 2.0GHz (8x A53). But I guess if it is really the MT6795 chipset, price below 999 yuan seems unlikely. If that is really the case, then it would quite a bargain (if we believe those rumors about 699/799 yuan).

      Last I heard the MT6755 won’t be available to 2016. Mediatek intends it to be next years budget/mid-range SoC replacing the 6752/53.

    If it really does have X10 this could be a game changer in the midrange phone market.

    Fingers crossed it has LTE band 20. Slim chance, though. ?

    What about external memory, battery and Corning Gorilla glass protection? Low price should not keep these away and Android 5.1 should be the minimum at a competitive price.
