Default THL W200s OctaCore MTK6592, CWM, firmware, files

I'm proud owner of the THL W200 phone, QuadCore MTK6589T 1,5GHz, 1GB RAM, 8 GB ROM, 5" OGS screen, etc
Few days ago I noticed that THL announced new version of this phone called W200s, they did similar thing with W100.
Phone outfit is the same, which is good in my opinion, very thin, good ergonomic for 5", narrow bezel around screen, etc. One more advantage of the same design is that we can use W200 accessories.

Main advantages over older brother are:
- OctaCore MTK6592 processor on 1,7 GHz
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- 32 GB ROM (still need to check partition layout, but this can be easily changed)
- BSI back camera should give better photos and higher frame rate under low light


I'm long time Pandawill buyer and I will buy this phone from them. It is on pre-sale until 20th February for 199.99 $ and as I been said by CS they will start shipping at the end of February.

I just hope that this phone will have same interest as older brother. I have made few firmwares and Russians made huge base of firmwares ported from different phones. Anyway once I get phone itself, I will try to make CWM/TWRP and cleaned firmware based on stock with some additions.

Other things are:

-Camera, T200 have 13 MPx camera, but W200s have 8MPx BSI camera which is better then standard 13 MPx

etc.

For me maximum screen size for a phone is 5" and I will never consider anything bigger.
In fact, I prefer THL W200S, because THL W200S cheap, and the size is not large.

I am waiting to receive mine from antelife, they have delayed a few days delivery date, I already expected that:

Dear customer,

We are sorry to tell you that THL W200S will be in stock at the end of the month.
Please wait a little more patiently. as soon as it is in stock. we will send it out
and you will get the track number

Have a nice day
Best regards
Caroline

About the camera, BSI is a technology developed by sony to get better pictures in low light condition, it is the same technology they use in their eximor chips, and one of them is the one thl has put in their t200c model, so I don't expect better results in w200s than in t200c, but I expect some better results from w200 witc my wife owns, so I will compare it also

2 gigs RAM is fine, but not really needed today for an HD screen, although it is a must for fullhd wich I think is of no use at all in screens this size, so I am very glad with the configuration chosen by thl for this model, I think it is the best quality/price phone avalaible today among all mobile phones, and I am pretty confident it will get number 1 choiced chinese mobile phone in months to come

it seems framaroot 1.9.1 can now root this soc, so it would be very easy to make a full backup of the rom and a cwm recovery using mtkdroidtools

let's hope mediatek delivers kit kat for this soc as promised so we can update it easily, and we will have a really cheap and great phone for the next couple of years (I hope)

there is already a video on youtube where you can see there is no nfc settings, the sim card slots are full size, and the memory comes with a 6 gigs partition por apps and 23 for internal sd, a good choice should I say

Yup, any MTK phone can use this tool. It is used for a long time in China, but recently translated (partially and old version).

NOTE - I cannot wait to see did they fixed capacitive buttons light intensity.[/QUOTE]

In regards to the last point regarding the capacitive buttons, I received my phone today and I'm afraid to say that you can hardly see any light emitting from the buttons. Everything else seems good though, just this old problem again.

good for you!
It would be nice if you Can post a small comparison with the old W200. Especially the camera would be interesting to me.
And of course the performance (glitches etc.)
The other stuff seems to be OK.
What about the display? is it the same as the W200?
Thanks in advance!
