We haven’t heard a lot from Mlais lately, one of the many Chinese smartphone startups that’s been making a name for itself this year. We’ve reviewed a number of Mlais’ devices including their latest flagship, the Mlais M7, but what about those looking to spend a little less for a device? That’s where the Mlais MX Base comes in, a phone that drops the specs just a hair and manages to keep the price range incredibly low. In fact the phone was just available last month for $99 on a flash sale, something that Chinese and Indian OEMs are well known for doing.
The Mlais MX Base features a 5-inch 720p IPS screen with 2GB of RAM for great multitasking. 16GB of built-in storage will last you a little while, and those that need additional room will find the microSD card slot on the phone quite useful. The processor is none other than the MediaTek MT6735 64-bit quad-core processor, and this phone is indeed powered by the latest 64-bit Android 5.1 Lollipop build. 4,300mAh is a massive battery for any phone, not to mention one that has as low power requirements as the MX Base does. Check out the unboxing video below and stay tuned for our full review coming shortly!
