9 new Chinese smartphones maybe you have not heard about

Usually, when mentioning Chinese smartphones, most of the time we only think of Xiaomi, Huawei, OnePlus, LeTV, and Meizu. However, there are more and today we would like to introduce 9 Chinese handsets perhaps you’ve not heard before.


1. Uhans U100

This phone has a very special design for the back since it is covered by a leather and a metal frame, which makes U100 look more premium. Some Uhans U100 specs include a 4.7-inch HD display, a Mediatek MT6735 chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, a 2,200mAh battery, a 13MP Sony rear with LED flash and a 5MP camera. Besides, both cams can record 1080P FHD at 30FPS. The whole machine runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out of the box with UHANS’ UI on top. So, if you are impressed with U100, you may feel the same for the Uhans U100 price of $119.99 (RM520).

2. Macoox X7 Mini

Macoox X7 Mini has been just released in China very recently. Some people think X7 Mini design is similar to LeTV Le1S due to its gold upper and lower bezels and black border around the display. Spec-wise, this machine sports a 5.5-inch FHD screen (which is not really “mini”, right?!), a 13MP main shooter, Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, a 1.3GHz Mediatek quad-core chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM and a 2,050mAh battery. For those who have interest in this guy, Macoox X7 Mini price is 1,299 Yuan (RM870) for the China Unicom FDD LTE model.

3. Blackview Omega Pro

Blackview is also a brand that has rarely appeared on Price Pony, but their products are pretty good in terms of specifications and prices. Blackview Omega Pro is a device like that and has just been announced lately and available on sale since 21 November, 2015. Blackview Omega Pro specs boast a dual SIM, a 5-inch HD display from LG, a Mediatek octa-core MT6753 chip, 3GB RAM, a 2,400mAh battery, and a combo of 13MP plus 2MP snapper to be basic. If you buy a Omega Pro, you can choose Pearl White, Violet Black or Rose Gold color with a Blackview Omega Pro price of $149.99 (RM645) HERE.

4. Macoox MC-X7

Another entry from Macoox is a 6-incher that just so happens to look like the LeTV Le Max phablet. Macoox are obviously after a different customer to the Le Max and so have cut a few hardware corners here and there to make a more cost effective device.

The phone is an all alloy product with fingerprint scanner and 13 mega-pixel camera on the rear. The front is taken up by a 6-inch HD (720 x 1280) display. Specs also include an octacore Mediatek 1.5Ghz processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB memory, Hotknot and a 2850mAh battery. Pricing in China for the Maccox MX-X7 is 1699 Yuan.

5. Small Pepper X5

For those who do not know about Small Pepper, they were the first to make budget dual-core phones and also the first to make budget quad-core ones. Their latest product is Small Pepper X5 that promises to bring users sleek experience. About the Small Pepper X5 specs, there are a 1GHz processor paired with 3GB RAM, a 2400mAh battery, a 5.5-inch HD display, an up to 8MP  front-facing and a 13MP primary camera. For the Small Pepper X5 price, it will cost 1,699 Yuan (RM1,140).

6. Haier Hai Le 3

Next, we have Haier Hai Le 3 whose specs are a 5-inch display, a 5MP front plus an 8MP rear camera, and a 1,800mAh battery. As for the design, the phone is built with dual 2.5D glass panels and a thin 7.2mm chassis, easy to hold in your palm and put in your pocket. Yet, actually, we think this company will have to try more if they want to develop their smartphone brand besides their well-known large TV and electronics business. Haier Hai Le price is 998 Yuan (RM670), which is very affordable for consumers.

7. Green Orange M4

This is a mid-range device built with a metal chassis and plastic back panels. There is a fingerprint scanner located right below its 13MP f/2.0 PDAF snapper. Other Green Orange M4 specs pack an octa-core MT6753 1.5GHz chip, 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, and a 5-inch display. Green Orange M4 price is 1,599 Yuan (RM1,070) yet only white versions are available at the moment.

8. Kingzone K2

Another 5.0-inch machine we want to mention is Kingzone K2. Spec-wise, it features a FHD screen along with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass panel up front, a square fingerprint scanner placed on the back together with a 13MP f/2.0 IMX214 shooter, a MT6753 octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, and a 2,600mAh battery to power all the smartphone. Specially, if you want to enjoy music on your own handset, K2 can satisfy you thanks to its Yamaha HIFI YDA 165 audio decoder.

9. Phicomm EX780

Last but not least, it is the flagship Phicomm EX 780. Looking like Vivo Xplay 3S, Phicomm EX780 specs also have the latest gen fingerprint scanner, a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 2900mAh battery, a 5.5-inch Full HD screen, a set of a 13MP and a 5MP cams, and 3GB RAM. Phicomm EX780 price is $238.99 (RM1,025).


Wow, they are the 9 new Chinese smartphones we just found out. It somehow shows that apart from some famous manufacturers we’ve already known, there are still other potential ones. Do you like them all?
