Baidu Cloud phone aka Changhong H5018 detailed
Baidu that is responsible for China’s most popular search engine has just revealed its newest smartphone, and today we have the Baidu Cloud phone aka Changhong H5018 that is detailed.
This device features the company’s own mobile platform and according to Engadget follows the flagship handset the Dell Streak Pro D43. The Changhong H5018 is manufactured by Foxconn and is the second handset to have its Android Gingerbread operating system enhanced meaning it will come with 100GB of cloud storage, along with voice control, voice search, and a variety of other online options that are offered by the Chinese search giant.
The handset itself features a 650MHz MTK6573 processor and a 3.5-inch display with 480 x 320 resolution, and a three megapixel camera all housed in a 1.3mm thick matte chassis casing. The Changhong H5018 is powered by a 1,400 mAh battery that isn’t removable, so no chance of upgrading it for something with a bit more power, but considering the specs the supplied unit should be sufficient.
It is being aimed at the lower end of the market and is priced accordingly at CNÂ¥899, which is around $140 without a contract. There is also a dual SIM offering both GSM and WCDMA and a microSD card slot both hidden underneath the bottom cover. Many believe that the target audience of the device is the fastest growing in the country, as more consumers decide to use more affordable handsets.
At first it was thought that the Changhong H5018 would come with 300GB of cloud storage before Baidu clarified it actually has 100GB provided with the handset. To see more images of the handset including a hands on review of it head over to Sina Tech.
