Spotted: 5-inch Quad-Core Phone with iPhone X-Like Notch – for Php2,399!

The iPhone X, which was launched last 2017, disappointed a lot of Apple fans who were expecting a much better product. Specifications were mediocre at best, and the pricing was terribly excessive.

However, it was a game-changer in the mobile industry for one particular design change – that notch, which partially covers the top-center part of the screen.. Almost all mobile phone manufacturers are now aiming to release a product with that sought-after notch (Asus Zenfone 5, Oppo F7, Vivo V9, Huawei P20, and many others)

Dual back cameras are quite a thing now, too.

While browsing in Lazada, we recently spotted an interesting mobile phone with that notch (or at least it looks like a notch – we’re not sure if it actually covers the screen). Called the VINOVO L2, it features an MTK658 Quad-Core processor (not sure if this is the same as the Mediatek MT6580), a 5-inch display, and 1GB of RAM + 8GB of ROM. It has dual-cameras at the back! From the specifications alone, this is not a high-performance phone like the iPhone X. It does have a flashlight though, so that’s pretty cool…. we guess?

Priced at only Php2,399, it is one of many [China-branded] phones in this highly competitive low-end market segment.
