finally, good alternative to redme 1s ..only if 1K price hike is ok with you
any idea which processor they use??
1.3 GHz is always mediatek 🙂
It could be a possibility, however, they are known to use their own processors !!!
It has MediaTek processor.
AFAIK, HiSilicon is currently only limited to midrange-highend. they should launch a quad Cortex A7 variant if they want to be competitive.
Internal memory is a Big plus here. Sure its better than Asus and Moto e but with Snapdragon processor, good camera and a lower price Redmi 1s still looks better on paper. But sure this mobile is gonna sell well for Huawei.
Just read an article now saying it uses Huawei made ‘Kirin’ processor. If thats the one used, dont know how quick the future updates are gonna be. Have to wait for benchmark results to know its performance.
Mediatek processor used, not as good as its snapdragon competitor but usable
only minus is gpu..but is this price range this is the best…with kitkat 16gb rom and otp screen it is sure better offering than redmi 1s..
Reviews are now live ..
go n watch them on youtube…best for moderate users 🙂
