Mental Millet Part 2: Phone Specifications and Price
Chris Smith / 3 years ago
Yesterday we reported on Chinese phone manufacturer Millet processing an incredible 1.62 million phone orders over a non-stop 72-hour period, blasting the local Chinese market with their latest technology release. Today, we’ve uncovered some more information on what’s contained within this most-wanted piece of kit thanks to MyDrivers.
Simply called the ‘Millet 5’, or ‘m 5’ if that’s a little too lengthy, this latest phone offering has been described as a flagship and much anticipated release for Millet. First batches of these phones have been selling for 3000 yuan ($490 US) and contain some pretty kick-ass features. Compared to their previous release, the Millet 4, this new smartphone offers you a slightly larger screen, a more sturdy design and a little more pressure on the wallet – nothing that sounds too much like an incredible advancement.
Containing a 5.7-inch screen and a powerful Xialong 810 processor (64-bit, eight core, 20nm), the Millet 5 is setting users back an extra 1,001 yuan ($163 US) compared to the previous Millet release. But interestingly enough, this phone certainly doesn’t follow the often stigmatized “cheap Chinese” technology route – providing fingerprint technology for users to unlock their phones (like is seen in the iPhone 5) and some very careful consideration is said to be put into providing a sturdy design.
We’ll continue to report as more information is made available to us here at eTeknix.
