iNew U3W comes with a Redmi 1S-esque design, MT6580 processor

Phone makers in China seem to have a vested interest in the entry-level MT6580 processor. iNew already announced the U5W with the SoC sometime back, and today there’s news of another phone from the company featuring the same chip.

Known as the iNew U3W, the device is going to be very affordable, we’re told. The U3W will come in four different colours — White, Black, Red and Green. It’ll feature the glowing home button made famous by the iNew V3 a couple of years back


As for the full specs of the device, it’ll have a 4.5-inch 854 x 480p display with an effective pixel density of 312ppi. A 2 mega-pixel rear camera and and a 0.3 mega-pixel front facing camera will make up for the camera department on the phone.

512MB of RAM and 4GB of ROM will go with the quad-core MT6580 SoC, so the U3W is going to be quite an entry-level affair.

A 1700mAh battery keeps the lights on on the U3W. Again, there’s no word on the price, but considering the entry-level specifications you can expect the phone to be among the more affordable Chinese phones of this year.
