GooPhone X1 aims to be world’s cheapest MT6589 based quad core phone

GooPhone, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer and maker of popular Apple and Samsung smartphone clones teases their cheapest quad core phone, to come with Mediatek's MT6589 chipset.

GooPhone's upcoming budget Android smartphone might not represent any of Apple's products (or Samsung's flagships for that matter), but it advertises itself as the world's cheapest Mediatek MT6589 based quad core smartphone, and it is perhaps the cheapest quad core phone after all.

GooPhone X1

  • Mediatek MT6589 Chipset
  • 1.2 GHz Quad Core ARM Cortex A7 CPU
  • PowerVR SGX544 GPU
  • 1 GB Of RAM
  • 4.7 Inch FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) Display
  • 5 MP Rear Camera
  • 4 GB Internal Storage
  • microSD Card Slot
  • Dual-SIM Standby
  • 10.6 mm thick
  • 1,800 mAh Battery
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

If you were looking for something overly impressive in the specifications list, you'd be disappointed. But that's only until you learn about the phone's price tag. At 649 Yuan ($105), the GooPhone X1 indeed impresses considering it packs the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, 1 GB of RAM, as well as a quad core chipset. The phone is plenty think (at 10.6 mm), but the design certainly looks good and minimalistic. GooPhone will be skinning the OS in their own flavor (which is bad news if you were looking for a stock Android experience).

The GooPhone X1 should be released in Chinese markets real soon at the aforementioned price.
