Vkworld set to Launch Three New Handsets in October, one of them is a Flip Phone!


Vkworld Mix

Cleverly enough, Chinese phone maker Vkworld is planning to launch three new devices in the month of October. That’s a perfect timing as it’s just before winter holidays, so you can buy one and hopefully receive it before Christmas – if you celebrate the holiday. The three smartphones are the tri-bezel-less Vkworld MIX, the flip-smartphone T2 Plus and the Vkworld S8 with its 18:9 display aspect ratio.

Vkworld Mix

 

For starters, let’s have a look at what’s probably the most interesting phone of the bunch, the Vkworld Mix. Vkworld say the handset will be a lite version of the popular Mix Plus, with 2GB / 16GB RAM and storage combo, versus the 3GB / 32GB of the predecessor. The camera has been changed to a Sony 8MP as is the battery, swapped for a bigger 3500mAh capacity one.

The Vkworld Mix will come with a metal and glass body and a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 coating on the 5.5-inch IPS panel. Down below are the full specifications.

Vkworld Mix Specifications

  • 5.5’’ on-cell IPS screen;
  • 3500mAh battery;
  • Samsung 2G RAM+16G ROM;
  • Sony 8MP+5MP camera with bokeh effect;
  • MT6737 quad-core processor;
  • Android Nougat;
  • AAC speaker;
  • Price: $119.99.

Vkworld T2 Plus

Another really unique phone is the Vkworld T2 Plus – the world’s first titanium-made flip phone. The handset is said to have a more premium feel, excellent build quality and craftsmanship. According to Vkworld, they have been working on this phone for over 9 month now. That’s because creating the titanium frame requires lots of processes and time, but it does make the phone more durable than anything else on the market. The leather back cover has also been tailored by professional designer, of course. The T2 Plus will feature a dual IPS screen and uses the same panels of the Blackberry P9982.
