Freetel Kiwami is a 6-inch Quad HD Android phone that costs $350 unlocked (in the US)
Freetel is a company that most people in North America haven't heard of: it's a Japanese handset maker that's trying to break into the US market by selling unlocked smartphones. The newest handset that Freetel is bringing to the US is definitely worthy of attention, as it offers attractive features at an accessible price.

Called Freetel Kiwami, the smartphone that we're talking about sports a massive 6-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display that dominates its front side. Built around a metal frame, the device is powered by an octa-core 2.0 GHz Helio X10 MT6795 processor (one of MediaTek's most capable CPUs), and offers 3 GB of RAM, plus 32 GB of expandable storage space. There's a 21 MP Sony-made camera on the back, while the front-facing camera is an 8 MP one. The Freetel Kiwami measures 159.5 x 82.9 x 8.9 mm, weighs 182 grams, and includes a 3400 mAh battery. The device is fully compatible with AT&T's LTE network, and partially compatible with T-Mobile's LTE network (it's only missing LTE band 12).

Unfortunately, at this time, the Freetel Kiwami runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and we don't know when (or if) it's going to be updated to Android Marshmallow. Anyway, the smartphone can be pre-ordered in either black, or white - check out the source link below - and should start shipping "in approximately 3 weeks" (only in the US). For a limited time, the Freetel Kiwami costs $350 (unlocked).

All in all, the Freetel Kiwami seems to be a serious competitor to the ZTE Axon Pro, another Quad HD Android smartphone that's currently sold unlocked in the US for under $400 (though this offers a 5.5-inch screen, not a 6-inch one). Let us know if you're tempted to order the Freetel Kiwami, okay?
