Slim bezels are the flavour of the season. While some are doing it, some think they are doing it.
The newest brand to jump on to this bandwagon (kind of) happens to be iNew, who have just announced their new iNew U9. The phone is targeted at folks who are in the market looking for a budget phablet. By phablet, I don’t refer to a 5.5-inch phone — they’re the standard now. But instead, 6-inch.
The iNew U9 has an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels across its 6-inch display, and a 2.5D curved glass on top of it. Besides that, the phone is powered by the favourite budget SoC among Chinese makers, the quad-core MediaTek MT6735 along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB on-board ROM.

The phone will sell for a price of around $100 (hopefully below that), which makes its 3000mAh battery sound fairly good capacity. As for the camera segment on the U9, it has an 8 mega-pixel rear shooter paired with a 2 mega-pixel one on the front. Network support on the phone includes the following bands – FDD-LTE:B1/3/7/8/20, WCDMA: B1/8 and GSM: B2/3/5/8. The phone is expected to go on sale by the first week of next month. It’ll be available in four colors – Black, White, Gold and Rose Gold. Click pictures below to expand.
