The Beidu Little Pepper smartphone has its mid-range spec sheet topped off with a 20MP camera
Disruptive Chinese manufacturers continue to redefine the mid-range smartphone category at the expense of their Korean and Japanese counterparts' merry bedtime sleep. For an up-to-date example, look at the freshly announced Beidu Little Pepper 6. This $193 (1,199 Yuan) smartphone has a 5-inch 720p display and is powered by a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek chip running at 1.5GHz, paired with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. 

Far from perfect, we know. But add Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 20-megapixel main camera - probably the last thing you'd expect to see in such a unpretentious configuration - and you get an unexpectedly solid deal! The front cam is no slouch either, it's a 8-megapixel unit. And there's an IR blaster, too - a blast from the past, re-purposed for the smart television sets and air conditioners of today. 

Looking at the interior design, the Beidu Little Pepper runs Android 4.4 KitKat topped off with a Beidu user interface, while the exterior is just pretty! It boasts a full-metal frame, glass-covered front and back-panels, and a slim profile - only 0.27in (7.1mm). This is the little pepper that could, we guess.

The phone instantly reminded me of the OG LG Optimus G more than anything, especially the wallpaper.
