China has recently played home to many Android smartphone manufacturers as of late, but unfortunately for the most part, most of China’s offerings are limited to the Chinese market, but the good news is that if you wanted to get your hands on one of China’s offerings in the form of the iNew V3, you might be pleased to learn that it will be available internationally for a price of $199, which is admittedly pretty cheap for a completely unlocked and off-contract device.
The iNew V3 might not necessarily be the most powerful Android smartphone to date, but what it has going for it would be its thinness which is currently set at an impressive 6.5mm thin. Its design actually reminds us of the Sony Xperia Z where the power button is protruding from its side, although in this case it appears to be on the left, not the right. In terms of specs, one can expect a MediaTek quad-core chipset clocked at 1.3GHz and will be accompanied by 1GB of RAM, It will sport a 5” HD touchscreen display with a 13MP CMOS rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and will run on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, and according to photos, it looks like you can interact with the phone even with your gloves on.
