Remember the newest iNew phone we talked about some weeks back?

Yes, the U3W.

A variant of the phone — MT6735-powered, instead of the MT6580 — is now on sale for $64.99.Fast forward to now, we know that it ll cost $64.99.

A year or so back people would ve lined up to get their hands on this baby, but there s no dearth of budget $65 phones the Picasso being one on the market now.Anyway, let s take a quick look over the spec sheet of the iNew U3.

There s a 4.5 inch 854 480 FWVGA screen right on top, under which sit the internals: the quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, 5 mega-pixel rear camera, 2 mega-pixel front facing camera and a 1750mAh battery.

There s also an IR blaster which is definitely not a commonality on sub-$100 phones.While the 1750mAh doesn t sound too high capacity, what I can say about iNew is that the actual capacity and the claimed capacity are usually hand in hand, unlike some other companies.That said, the U3 might be a worthwhile investment of $64.99 shipped if you re looking for a budget phone.
