Baidu planning a $160 custom Android-esque smartphone
Back in September, Baidu announced a product called Baidu Yi OS, which is essentially Android with Baidu’s services replacing Google’s. Today Baidu announced that it is working with Foxconn to incorporate that OS into its own smartphone.
The device is slated to have a 3.5-inch touch-enabled display, 1400mAh battery, a “high” megapixel camera, and will only cost 2,999 yuan, which is approximately $160. Baidu did not specify when it plans to bring this device to market, but the end of the year seems like a reasonable guess.
