tianhe-x920+-mtk6589tGizbeat was a bit skeptical we’d see MTK6589T smart phones released before the end of the month, but already we’ve got at least two phones shipping with the MTK6589T. We recently posted a preview of the MTK6589T and some of the differences between it and the standard MTK6589.

MTK6589T is an exciting new chipset with a significant boost in GPU and CPU power. Though the majority of phones initially coming out with MTK6589T will be 1080p, within the next couple months we should see some 720p options as well which will be an excellent choice for demanding 3D games.

UMiX2-mtk6589t

The first phones released are the Tianhe X920+ and the UMi X2. These are available now from severalĀ  online retailers. The Tianhe X920+ is a sub-$250 1GB/4GB phone, while the UMi X2 with 1GB/16GB is selling anywhere from $260-300. The UMi sports significantly higher storage and Gorilla Glass. While these prices are maybe fair, this is starting to get into a price realm which may have consumers considering phones and thinking twice before dropping this much on a China phone with virtually no customer support and long wait times/shipping costs involved with repairs. To be fair though, this is the initial offering and within the next couple months we should see prices drop as MTK6589T competition gets stiffer.

In Gizbeat’s opinion, the less expensive Tianje x920+ actually looks better. The rounded corners on the UMi are excessively feminine. Part of the reason for UMi’s design choice is to look more like the Samsung Galaxy.

Still waiting on the Neo N003 which has come up in price to just over $200 at Lightake. Customers who bought this at $180 got a great bargain, though at $200 shipped, it’s still a phone to be considered.
