Hot on the heals of the Doogee DG550 Dagger announcement, iNew has already released a demo models of their iNew v5. So far, this is what we know about the iNew V5:
- SoC: MT6592
- CPU: 8-core 1.7GHz
- GPU: Mali-450 Mp4
- Radios: GSM/WCDMA
- Cameras: 13mp rear / 5mp front
- Battery: 2270mA
- Sensors: Gravity, Proximity, Compass
- Dimensions: 157*78*7.2
Love it or hate it, the iNew v3 was one of, if not the biggest, China models to hit in a long time – possibly ever and it’s done a lot for the market as well. When people see the iNew v3 phone, they want to know – what is it? how much? where to get it? The aluminum side panels, sleek profile and the futuristic Evil Eye sitting in the middle of the bottom of the phone make Samsung phones look plain.
Good thing they’ve upped the battery a bit, with reported specs showing 2270mA, though the screen being slightly bigger will offset the increase in mA some. The one area that iNew needs to work on is getting the weak internal charging system fixed. Inexplicably, this has been going on for 5 months now and still the brand new units produced have the faulty systems. For a phone that’s otherwise great, it’s a frustrating wrench in the mix. Let’s hope the iNew V5 gets this right.
