GooPhone is all set to introduce to the world the cheapest quad-core Android Smartphone till date. Say hello to the GooPhone X1, to go on sale in China soon for just 499 Yuan, that’s an ultra-cheap $81.

GooPhone X1 specifications:

  • 1.2 GHz MediaTek MT6589 Chipset

  • 2 MP Rear, 1.3 MP Front Cam

We have to warn you that the $81 price tag is just for local dealers. Those who want to purchase one of these cheap babies off-contract will have to shell out 593 Yuan (or about $97). Even then, the phone costs under $100 and will still hold the ‘world’s cheapest quad-core’ title.

At present, there is no word on an International release, but boy do we wish it launches in our country (as you’d wish it came to yours). Thankfully, the phone can be ordered via many online resellers, but at the cost of a slight premium.
