How terrific THL T12 is? We have no idea at the moment because it will not be available until 14th, March. However, one thing we can for sure, its essence– cost-performance, can’t be separated with basic hardware configuration, which a crucial part. Fortunately, its parameters chart has exposed.
To be characterized with authentic Octa-core processor, we have enough reasons to anticipate to THL T12 Smartphone already. In fact, it is powered by MTK6592M 1.4GHz Octa-core processor that based on Cortex A7, the GPU section is a typical Mali-450, couple that to Android 4.4 KitKat OS, it has all the preconditions to present you high-efficiency and low battery-consumption processing performance. Even though internal memory figure is slightly conservative, only 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM, however, it will be appropriate and enough in the view of middle-end smartphone.
Unlike the breakthrough on the powerful “engine”, THL T12 seems to be more rational and mature regarding to display. Instead of massive display touch screen, what it has come up with is a slightly smaller 4.5-inch capacitive touch screen with IPS technology, in the light of one-hand control and comfortability, probably it will be a true balance. In the meanwhile, 720P screen resolution and 326PPI obviously isn’t the best of the best but more than enough for a 4.5-inch dimension screen to be fair.
However, why THL T12 costs just 106USD reference price only? I reckon 2.0MP front camera and 8.0MP rear camera with flashlight and auto focus is more like an Achill’s heel. On the other hand, even though GPS, OTG, Bluetooth 4.0 and other basic equipment are guaranteed, but you will never know how practical or useful can they be until taking an advantage.
Nevertheless, like other THL T12 Review mentioned, it genuinely has a decent hardware configuration, even close to Meizu M1, however, seeing is believing, only user experience will tell its cost performance, not the figure on the chart.
