Phone maker Morefine have released the Max 1 featuring a metal and dual curved glass design but with a retail price of just $119.99.

With the Chinese phone marketing packed to the brim with brands, its always a surprise to see a new brand name crop and and try and carve out a piece of the pie for themselves.

This week we already reported on Vernee, a new brand with Helio X20 phone in the making, and now we have the Max 1 from phone maker Morefine.

Despite the Max 1 name suggesting a phablet or large screen phone, the Morefine is actually a compact 5-inch phone with once display and slim 7.15mm body. Design really is the name of the game here, with a metal frame, and front and rear 2.5D curved glass panels.

From the renders the Crystal White phone appears to have a narrow border design, but we will have to wait for real photos to confirm if this is accurate or not.

      you know how the saying goes “BETTER LATE THAN……………………..

      please appreciate that the fact that they put in some amount of effort to right this article and even though it may have been released couple months ago not everyone will know this and the fact that the post it here at all will bring awareness”

      this is a popular saying most people know

        I would try to find a teardown video instead, Youtube is bound to have one for this or the Gionee E8.

    When you can get a K3 Note for like $125 the phones like these are a non sense.

    Their website lists numerous retailers including amazon. And gearbest has a nice russian speaking video review of the phone. Nice one for this price.
