From now until an unspecified time later today, Colawe will be releasing renders of the Colawe W550 Rio along with more hardware details hourly. The details will be posted on their Facebook page each hour with the next image going live at 8am GMT this morning.

    On their website it says it has a quad core 1.3GHz 64bit processor.
    2 GB RAM and 16GB ROM. So you pay those 100 bucks for the amoled screen. The rest is throw away cheap.

    Please don’t post hourly news updates to show off the renders as they are posted. The news section is getting hard enough to read through as is.

    why would anyone care about another budget phone like all the others?

    what about dual sim and a non hybrid sd slot? That would be revolutionary!
