Neo: Quad-Core, 5.3-Inch, HD 13-MP Android Smartphone Leaked, Costs $160

Neo's N003 smartphone has been leaked. The device offers a quad-core processor, an HD 5.3-inch screen, and other compelling components for $160.

The Chinese handset manufacturer is apparently preparing to announce the device early next month, with an initial launch scheduled soon after in China. The Neo N003 offers a 5.3-inch HD display, a quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery.

Its screen, however, offers a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels rather than 1080 pixels. The quad core processor is supplied by MediaTek, which isn't as high profile as ones produced by Samsung or Qualcomm. Still, it's not often that a device with such high-end specs is offered for such a budget price.

While it's unclear exactly which version of Android the Neo N003 will run on, 4.1 Jelly Bean is expected to be the smartphone's platform of choice.

    Too big. I just don't have pockets that large that I can wear all year round.

    While this may seem tempting, chi-pads and chi-phones are made with inferior parts and will not be nearly as good as their legitimate competitors. This may seem obvious, but some of these cheap chinese android tablets/phones look damn scrumptious.

    what gregck said is right.

    also, the mediatek quad core SOCs are using cortex a-17 cores. not that great performance. and a not so great GPU as well is used.

    china phones tend to also skimp on quality of glass used. there are high quality china phones, but their price is higher...sometimes very close to "real" phones
