4 inch displays to become smartphone standard

Local companies in China have been making upgrades to the specifications of their entry level smartphones for the US $150-$240 sector. The plans are to make dual core 1GHZ processors and 4 inch screens the new industry ‘standard’. The news is circulating in the Far East over the weekend and other publications such as Digitimes have reported the findings today.

China Unicom have been driving forward the plans, purchasing dual core processors and larger 4 inch displays. They are supplied by ZTE, Lenvo, Coolpad, TCL, Hisense, K-Touch, Wanlida and Huawei Technologies – all Chinese companies.

Digitimes add “Prices of the previous mainstream models with single-core CPUs and displays below 4-inch sizes for the CNY1,000 segment in the first half of 2012 are now expected to drop to CNY500-800, the sources added.”

Kitguru says: Bigger screens and faster processors, even in the lower market segment. Can’t be a bad thing.
