We’ve already seen next generation phones from Meizu, Oppo and Xiaomi, but the year still has some surprises left and we cannot wait to see what Chinese phone makers Zopo, THL, Xiaocai, Nubia and Jiayu have in store for us!

Mediatek must have impressed someone at Samsung, as reports are coming in that the Korean Android giant is planning to adopt the latest 8-core SoC the Taiwanese company.

Xiaomi’s Hongmi smartphone is taking China by storm, but even at such an attractive price some customers are not happy by the lack of accessories but this limited edition model with soon solve that.

The OrientPhone N8 is a budget conscious quad-core, 8-inch tablet with built-in 3G and support of voice calls.

Over the past few years we have seen a number of Chinese phone companies offer 3D phones. Non have really made much of an impact, the Ulivon M005 hopes to change that.

Mlais have leaked another photo of a PCB fitted with 8-core MT6592 processor along with a few details about it’s upcoming phone models.

With 4G LTE ready to go mainstream in China, Chinese phone makers need a low-cost 4G LTE solution and Mediatek have one with the MTK6290.

Chinese processor maker is going after Taiwanese chip giant Mediatek with their own Allwiiner A80 Octa-core processor.

After much speculation and a few leaked photos, we finally have some firm evidence that a WCDMA compatible Xiaomi Hongmi is on the way.

Apple’s stylish new gold, or ‘champagne’ version of the iPhone 5S has caused a shift from Chinese makers to offer their own gold versions!

FAEA have had a great first year. Their good looking NFC phones have proved popular and now they plan to add a new member to their range, the FAEA F3.

Jiayu are planning a double launch this October with the stainless steel JiaYu G5 making an appearance at the same time as at the JiaYu S1.

There are plenty of guides and how to articles on the web describing how you can ROOT your Android phone, but not many are as easy and straight forward as Framaroot.

THL hit the headlines earlier this year with the launch of the THL Monkey King, the only phone then and now to boast dual 13 mega-pixel cameras! Is this the King of all phones though?

Chinese startup Dakele will launch the much anticipated Dakele 3 tomorrow in Beijing and rumours suggest it could be the first of the new breed of Mediatek phones.

Taiwanese chip maker Mediatek have already announced that they plan to launch the 8-core MT6592 processor this year, and it looks like phone makers will launch 8-core phones earlier than expected.

What an amazing week for Chinese technology fans! We have seen next gen phones, seen amazing collaborations and more!

Over the past week we met with a number of Chinese phone makers. Some were eager to share their ideas, others not so. What we learnt from all is exciting.

The question put up by Andi, whether Mediatek should embrace GPL (or at least offer more tools to custom ROM devs) can, in my opinon, be easily answered with “Yes”. If you buy a device, its always great to have the opportunity to fiddle around with it and change things. Theres already a lot possible, once you acquire root rights on your Android system, but if the hardware base is open too, the possibilities are even bigger.

Chinese phone makers are finally looking to offer their phones to the international community, but with very little developer support available for MTK phones should we push Mediatek to honor GPL, or push manufacturers to rival processors.
