We all know that China is full of companies which manufacture smartphone, it’s rather hard to get into the spotlight over there. Some Chinese OEMs have seriously stepped up in 2014 and surprised many people, like Xiaomi and Meizu for example. There are, however, less-known companies over there which tend to release a solid device now and then, like Beidu for example (though they’re rather well-known in China). This company has unveiled a relatively solid smartphone and managed to get our attention, let’s see what they have to offer.
The Beidu Little Pepper 6 is a mid-ranger which features a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display along with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This handset is powered by MediaTek’s 64-bit MT6732 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. This handset also offers a 20-megapixel snapper on the back (f/2.0 aperture), which is somewhat surprising considering the rest of its specifications. The device comes with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed with Beidu’s skin on top of it. This device also offers dual-SIM option and supports 4G LTE connectivity, which is great, of course. Gorilla Glass 3 is located both on the front and rear of this phone and this handset even offers an IR blaster as part of the package for those of you who use that thing.
Beidu did not say how much will this handset cost, but the reports say that its price will be around 1,199 Yuan ($193), perhaps even less than that. This is a solid mid-range device I believe, you do get some unusual stuff for a mid-range handset, like the 20-megapixel camera and an IR blaster, not to mention Gorilla Glass 3 display protection. It would be nice if the device would cost even less though, I do believe there are better options out there for 1,199 Yuan, especially in China, but I won’t comment on this considering that the pricing for this handset has not been confirmed yet. Anyhow, what do you think about this device, would you be interested in getting in once it becomes available for purchase? Let us know what you think, we’d love to hear from you.
