Most of us haven’t heard of THL in the mobile phone scene but on some other parts of Asia this brand is starting to gain grounds. THL devices offers premium specs in a more affordable package that’s why Novo7 Tech will be bringing the latest THL 5000 which features an Octa-core CPU, Android KitKat and a massive 5000 mAh Li-Po battery. Despite the large battery being squeezed inside, the THL 5000 was still able to keep the weight on average and managed to deliver a considerably thin device at 8.9mm thick.
Keeping up with the latest trend doesn’t have to be pricey and THL serves that well. The new THL 5000 features a large 5-inch IPS display with One Glass Solution(OGS) technology at full HD resolution. The screen is a protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 so users can be reassured that the display ain’t going to break anytime soon. The 13 Megapixel camera on the back is a Sony IMX15 sensor with LED flash and a not too basic 5 Megapixel camera on the front. Though the front seems a little bit boring but the back has a perforated design which gives the feeling of being premium.
It is powered by a 1.7GHz Quad-core MediaTek MT6592 processor with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of primary storage space. For those who finds the internal storage inadequate, the device also accepts microSD card of up to 32 GB capacity. It also has a USB On-The-Go (OTG) supports which the devices allows the attachments of external low power USB peripherals or components.
As a communication device, THL 5000 supports Dual-SIM capabilities and connects to GSM, 3G and HSPA+ wireless networks. For nearby devices and network connections, the new THL 5000 has built-in Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS support. It also comes with NXP Audio amplifier for a loud and clearer sound quality.
Novo 7 Tech will officially introduce the device in the country with a price to be unveiled later. The THL 5000 has been on sale in other parts of the world and based on foreign pricing, we’d expect the new THL 5000 to be priced around 12 – 13K.
