MT6580 Homtom HT16 now on on pre-sale for $49.99

While it’s true that the MT6580 isn’t the most powerful mobile SoC around, the chip has done well to make decent smartphones available to everyone. A prime example of that would be the UMi Rome X, which features the same SoC and is quite a decent phone.

The Homtom HT16 has a 5-inch 1280 x 720p display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB on-board ROM, 5 mega-pixel rear & 2 mega-pixel front camera (extrapolated to 8 and 5 mega-pixel respectively), a 3000mAh battery and an Android 6.0 Marshmallow installation… besides of course, the MT6580 processor.
