Did you ever thought quad core smartphones will be ever available at $100? It would be no surprise for you know as Beidou is set to launch a brand new low cost quad core phone in China which will be priced at 699 Yuan which converted in local currency comes to $112.
Ever since Quad core processor has made inroads on smartphones and tablet PC, within no time it has become a choice for low cost smartphones as well. We have gone through few low cost quad core smartphones available in India and here we have Beidou M1 headed for launch in China mainland. It is clearly evident as the CEO of the company Tan Wensheng revealed plans of coming out with a low cost quad core phone.
Beidou M1 is made for Chinese consumers and it will be the cheapest quad core phone ever available in any part of the world. After launching Pepper for just $112 last year which ultimately went down the wire, Beidou is making a strong comeback by introducing M1 quad core phone. This smartphone by Beidou will certainly beat JiaYu G4 and Umi X2 in terms of prices is concerned as we are talking about Quad core phones specifically here.
It will feature 4.5 inches IPS capacitive touchscreen display with 960 x 540 pixels resolution. Good thing is that it’s powered with quad core Qualcomm MSM8225Q processor with 512 MB RAM providing blazing speed but RAM is very limiting factor. It has 8 mega pixel camera on the rear side with better image capturing capabilities and 2 mega pixel front facing camera provides face to face video chat.
It will include Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system version bringing the smooth user interface and Google Now integration. It does include Wi Fi, Wi Fi tethering capabilities.
