iNew U5: Entry-level 5″ phone with MT6735P


iNew’s been away for a while, but from what they’re up to right now, it appears that they’ve been up to some work.

After announcing the MT6735 powered L3 yesterday, iNew talk about the new U5 which is another entry-level phone.

In this case, the phone uses the down-clocked version of the MT6735, i.e., the MT6735P which runs at 1.0GHz through its four cores (as opposed to 1.3GHz on the full version).

The phone has a 5-inch 1280 x 720p display and comes with 1GB of RAM, 16GB on-board storage and a camera department consisting of an 8 mega-pixel rear shooter and a 2 mega-pixel front. A 2300mAh battery powers the phone.

From the looks of it, the iNew U5 looks a little like the Lenovo Sisley S90 (which itself reminds us of the iPhone). There’s no word on the official pricing yet, but the phone should be somewhere around the US$110 mark when it does go on sale.

Have you used an MT6735 phone so far? If yes, what do you think of it? Let us know in the comments section below.

    MT6735 is a good processor with a little heating, the problem is android 5.1 that is full of bugs.

      It’s a budget device, in a month or two the price probably will be lower than $100, actually it gives a good backup phone.

      Dude. It’s a budget phone. If you want the fastest and newest components, why are you even reading this post?

        because … SOME budget phones actually focus on breaking the trend , brother.
        Some companies are hard at work , trying to make phones that do NOT give the impression of being the minnows of the smartphone world but rather decent offerings at absolute bargains…

          this is the reason you roam around these sites – My personal reason is to see what interesting phones come out – oposed to the western market where every device is one faced

    I have used one MT6735 and it is a very good budget SoC (a lot better than SD410). It is not anything close to a powerhouse but it handles the basics with ease. The best thing about it is it might be the most efficient SoC available today. With this setup it will have amazing battery life (providing the software isn’t an issue).

      Yeah you’re right, I’m currently waiting for a Leagoo Elite 5 with that SoC to finally try it out. In the start I was putting it off or seeing it just as weak, in relation with the previous budget MT6732. But The SD410 is pretty underpowered while still deliver decent usage for some, so If you say this one is better I guess it will be fine, If there is something that I expect from it is power efficiency and smoothly usage in normal apps, I have a MT6752 for gaming, even hardly gaming, so why complain? This Elite 5 has a 4000mAh battery running with this SoC So let’s see =)

        The mt6732 paired with a 720p was great for gaming (not kidding ) Im very sad people went on for the new 6735 instead of that (same goes for the 6752) and the ironic thing is that those devices got a lot cheaper (ex iocean rock) but the new ones start at around 170 bucks and are basiclly rebrands – A dumb thing also is that mediatek cut support for the 6752/32

        I used it and had no issues with everyday apps (facebook, youtube, netflix, light gaming). It ran cool and never slowed down and battery life was outstanding. I didn’t attempt any games higher than like a Candy Crush but it handled that with ease.
