Not more than a few short months ago, we saw the first smartphone to sport a 1080p display, the HTC Butterfly (Droid DNA), hit the market. This was quickly followed by the introduction of more high-end phones that boast similar full HD panels, with “high-end” being the keyword here.
The Neo N003, which we first reported in December, changes all this. Back then it didn’t have a price tag attached to its name and specs yet, but now we’ve found out that it’ll be offered at an amazingly low price of $145… in China.
In addition to its 5-inch full HD display (1,920 x 1080 resolution), the Neo N003 is expected to come with a quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor clocked at 1.3GHz. The rest of the known specs so far include 1GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera, and a 3,000mAh battery. All in all, it’s definitely a great price for the package that you’ll be getting.
It’s too bad that there’s no word yet on when the N003 will be released, but we hear that a higher-end model will also be up for grabs soon. We’ll keep you posted.

Shaky specs for fullHD. This one, albeit more costly, features the S4 Pro set and an epic 4500mAh battery. :D
Comparing $145 with $400
Comparing one that will lag with one that won’t but still come affordable.
Then I’d go with Nexus 4 (Dev community, updates, support)
Bone, you’re rich. Most of us don’t have money to spend like you do.
Looks like a better iPhone.
Sorry, but where did you get the $145.00 price tag?
You can buy it Chine from AliExpress for a price between $350 and $400.00.
Would really love to know where.
I’ve heard bad things about that website being a rip off but I’m not sure if it’s true
Little overclocking and that might be pretty snappy for 145$!
@disqus_HVuUjjmCYP:disqus can you help me get the one you suggested ………..1.9ghz clocked ……… how can i get that one
if the price is real, it would be a hit in the pihlippines
ahhh my eyes!!
But 150.00 HKD = 12.97 GBP
this one is coming to India at a similar price..I think around 160$
I sold my Galaxy Note I (N7000), got a tablet Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1(N8000) for the same price, around U$650 here in Brazil (usually costs U$900), and now I will buy a really good Chinese smartphone 5.7″ HD, quad core CPU, 1GB RAM, 3600 mAh battery for U$200.
How I almost do everything on my Galaxy Note 10.1, I sold my Sony Vaio 15, 6″ i3 4GB notebook for U$750, got a basic Samsung notebook for U$320 and uses like 2 times a week.
So, in the end I still have money in my pocket and I am happy.
But, if this Neo really specs quad core, full HD screen and 3000mAh for 145 bucks, I can change my mind.
Before this Neo, I was thinking about S7589 model 5.7″ with capacitive pen like Galaxy Note line.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYYmRT338uw&feature=youtube_gdata_player
