As you might expect, this model is mostly targeted at China and isn’t sold outside of China at all, but may come to other regions in the near future. There’s nothing really special here but the relatively large battery should help with battery life unless there’s something glaringly wrong from a power efficiency perspective. It will be going on sale soon at 1300 RMB for the 2/16GB model and 1500 RMB for the 3/32GB model, or approximately 200 and 230 USD respectively. Colors available include gold, rose gold, silver, and gray.
