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.
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
Anyway back to the article. The third paragraph has some bizarre wording
"Its screen, however, offers a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels rather than 1080 pixels. "
Do you mean 1080p (1920x1080p)? It's just badly worded all around.
I find it really awesome that you can get a phone with such high specs like this considering there are worst phones on the US market that cost more subsidized with a contract
costs about 15000 INR which is a little less than $300 .. Some pitting it to be one of the Android phones around..
Actually, the GPU is excellent. PowerVR 544MP. The A-7 may be kinda meh though.
