iNew Pandora R9 will be one for selfie lovers


iNew Pandora R9

The front flash trend seems to have come back after a brief hiatus. Chinese companies, especially, seem keen on having phones out in the market with front flash.

iNew are the newest company to join the league. We’ve previously talked about their upcoming Pandora lineup, and now there’s news (well, a teaser) about a phone from that series.

The iNew Pandora R9 (yes, the OPPO R9 doppelgänger) will target selfie users. The teaser seems to depict a front flash also, to keep things interesting. Gionee recently launched a phone with front flash… and if that’s not enough, here’s a whole list.

Check out the teaser image below.

There’s no word on the specifications or pricing of the iNew Pandora R9 so far. We expect to hear from the company in the coming few days, which is when you can expect more info about the device. What’s your take on it so far?

    My take is that the trend to develop and market new devices based on such features is just bad strategy. How many hardcore selfie lovers are going to get the latest iNew Pandora R9?

    If anyone is really after the best selfie-taking smartphone, this is how it is going to work. You are going to type a query in your favorite search engine, and read a couple of the best SEO’d articles out there. Chances are, iNew Pandora R9 is not going to make that list. And if, and when, it does, selfies will have become a thing of the past. By then, we will be looking at the fastest retina-unlocking phone. Elephone to the rescue….

      “If anyone is really after the best selfie-taking smartphone, this is how it is going to work. You are going to type a query in your favorite search engine, and read a couple of the best SEO’d articles out there.”

      Or ppl get exposed to extensive Oppo marketing. They think they MUST have the brand new R9 to shot gorgeous selfies and reveal their true beauty (which is temporarily hidden behind poor skin quality). They go to the nearest phone shop and realize they can’t afford the Oppo R9, or feel culpability about spending so much money over a phone. But nothing’s lost : they still can buy an iNew Pandora R9 (or an Elephone R9 btw) displayed in this very same shop for half the price ! They’ll still have gorgeous selfies to display on QQ without spending their month salary.

    Inew has to be reasonable with specs and other stuff
