Chinese smartphone manufacturers never manage to surprise us. We have seen many interesting smartphones from small companies in the past few years, and today, we have yet another company which has outed a good looking device.
You may have never heard of the company, Dingding, but they have just released a new smartphone in the market, the Dingding SK3 Pro which takes its design inspiration from one of the best looking smartphones of 2014, the LG G3. In fact, you can even say that the phone is a clone, because you get the same good looks of the G3 on this new device.
The front features a very clean and minimal look which adorns the large 5.5-inch display up front. At the back, you get the same rear volume rockers and power button as the G3. Even the camera and speaker placement is inspired from the LG flagship.
Inside, the phone features modest specifications. You get the standard MT6582 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz on the device. But there’s an option for MT6572 too, which is an even slower processor (dual-core clocked at 1.2GHz) most likely retailing for a lesser price tag.
There’s 1GB RAM onboard along with 8GB internal storage. It is said that you can opt for a 2GB RAM + 16GB storage version as well. Moreover, you can expand storage via MicroSD up to 32GB on both the models.
The large 5.5-inch display features a resolution of 1280 x 720p. For the low-end edition, you get the same 5.5-inch display but with a lower qHD resolution. As for the camera, there is an 8MP shooter at the back along with a 5MP shooter up front. In the better version, the rear camera produces 13MP resolution pictures and the front camera takes 8MP pictures with software interpolation.
Despite its modest specifications, one of the best features of the device is the large 3000 mAh battery onboard. Usually, to cut down the cost, manufacturers tend to sacrifice in this important area, but its good to see that Dingding SK3 Pro packs in a battery which can last for a day easily. And if you have the lower-end MT6572 dual core edition, you will definitely get more than a day’s usage, thanks to its power efficient feature.
Given its entry level placement, the phone does not support LTE networks. It will run on the Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS out of the box.
The device is expected to hit the markets soon in black, white and gold colors. We still don’t know the pricing of the SK3 Pro, but will keep you guys updated if we receive any information.
