Welcome to the new normal, where phones sporting a 4.6-inch display and more is no longer an oddity, but more like a necessity. If you happen to be in the market for such a phone in Vietnam, you may want to check out the new mobiistar touch KEM 462, which is released today for VND 3,990,000 ($190).

The mobiistar touch KEM 462 comes with a decent sheet of specs. If you’re wondering if it’s worth the price tag, here’s a quick rundown of what the phone has to offer.

  • 4.6-inch display with 854 x 480 resolution
  • 1GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor; PowerVR SGX 531
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage
  • microSD slot (up to 32GB)
  • 8MP main camera with LED flash
  • 0.3MP front-facing camera
  • Dual-SIM support (2G & 3G)
  • 1,600mAh battery
  • 170 grams
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Mobiistar has partnered with Opera Software to ship its phones – including the touch KEM 462 – with the Opera Mini mobile browser pre-installed. This should help differentiate the handset from other Android offerings in the market.

Anyone in the country plan to pick up the dual-SIM touch KEM 462 soon?

    It seems to be Opera’s strategy to partner with local phone manufacturers to preinstall the browser. This may be a good one because most people use the default browsers and are not likely to download and try a new one.
