Viewsonic ViewPhone 5e has Big Display, Poor Specs

Advertisement

In response to the buzz generated by the Samsung Galaxy Note, other OEMs are hoping to get into the tab-phone action with phones that go above 5″ in screen size. LG recently showed us their Vu, and now Viewsonic has announced the ViewPhone 5e, a dual-SIM smartphone that has a 5.0″ display. Dissapointingly, the 5e’s display resolution is a mere WVGA, granting the device a grainy 186ppi pixel density. On the bright side, it will ship with Android 4.0. No word yet on other specs like CPU and RAM, though we’re guessing that this will turn out to be a midrange or low-end phone, given the resolution of the display, so don’t expect the latest quad core processor to ship in the 5e. Look for the 5e to ship for below $599 in Q3 of this year.
