The list of specs and features also includes a fingerprint reader, dual-SIM capabilities, stereo speakers, Android 7.0 Nougat, and the ubiquitous 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, micro USB.

Unfortunately, this handset will make its debut exclusively via Chinese online shop JD.com "in early 2017," priced at 1,699 CNY - currently around $245 USD. For more details, please check the press release below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
