Smile Motorola may launch a ~$50 android phone


WOW! This would be phenomenal! Imagine near stock android on a cheap phone. If you are wondering what a $50 phone can give you hardware spec wise here are the specs for the upcoming Jiayu F1 $50 phone (China price):

Android 4.2.2
4" 480x800 screen Sony TFT
dual core 1.3ghz cortex a7 mediatek MTK6572
mali 400 gpu with 720p h264 support
512mb ram
4GB Rom
5mp camera with autofocus
0.3mp front camera
LED flash
micro sd slot (upto 64GB)
2400mah battery
Sensor - Distance/light/gravity
Additional - WIFI/Bluetooth/FM/GPS
Networks - GSM/WCDMA dual-sim
WCDMA - 2100Mhz
TD - 1900/2100mHz
GSM - 850/900/1800/1900MHz
Dimensions 62.5 x 124 x 10.5mm

Expect android 4.5/5.0 on motorola's phone, depending on when they launch the phone it might even have a dual/single core 64bit arm v8 cortex a53 cores and 64bit android.

I doubt they would use any kind of 64bits CPU.. Unless they released it no less than 2 years...

Maybe a custom low clocked
dual-core CPU based on Qualcomm tech (400 or s4 ?), 512mb (Android 4.4 working good on that kind of ram), 8-16gb becausw Google wants us to live in the cloud so they dont suppor micro-sd slot, 480x800 screen at 4inch ? Maybe less

That COULD taking into account that $50 dollar chinesse smartphone...

Even though im still thinking what i just said its like the best possible scenario

It's more Motorola in general, but there's no need to be unpleasant about it, xheon.

I personally find it cool that Googorola seems to want to redefine the budget phone.
