Bmorn W4301 is a $34 Android Smartphone Powered by Intel Atom x3-C3101 Processor

Orange Pi Development Boards

Intel unveils their plans for Atom X3, X5 and X7 processors last year, but so far we’ve mostly seen devices with Atom X5 processors.  The lowest end Intel Atom processor, namely X3-C2101 “Sofia” dual core processor, with an ARM Mali-400MP GPU and 3G connectivity did find its way into Teclast X70 3G tablet that is now selling for $64 and up retail (but there’s a deal on Geekbuying for $45.99), and a company called Bmorn is about to launch their W4301 smartphone based on Intel/Rockchip X3-C2101 SoC for just $34 ( factory price in quantities), but I think the retail price should be around $60 including shipping.

Bmorn_W4301Bmorn W4301 preliminary specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Atom x3-C3130 dual x86 core processor @ up to 1GHz with Mali-400MP2 GPU @ 533 MHz
  • System Memory – 512MB or 1GB LPDDR2
  • Storage – 4 or 8 GB eMMC
  • Display – 4″ touchscreen with 800×600 resolution
  • Connectivity – WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
  • Cellular Connectivity – 3G (WCDMA)
  • Camera – 2MP rear camera, 0.3MP front-facing camera
  • Battery – TBD – 4 hours talk-time
  • Dimensions & Weight – N/A

The phone runs Android 4.4, but I understand Android 5.1 Lollipop will be used once the phone ships. There’s little information about the phone right now, but you can still go to Bmorn W4301 product page, and/or watch Charbax video below about this phone, and other products from Bmorn.

If the SoC can be had for such a low price, it could be suitable for a 3G IoT board too.

I wonder why there still not are cheap Chinese x68 SBC’s with Intel Atom…
A Windows Server with sub 2W idle power consumption would be awesome

No offense, but in my opinion even at this price it is a waste of plastic and other materials.

i have always wonder about the cpu performance difference between atom x3 and arms cortex a53,

@RAF
i agree that its a paperweight , compared to other phone @ that price range
Bluboo Xfire offer better hw (on paper at least,like bigger screen, better camera, cpu?, gpu, 4g, mali-t720) and only cost $5 more.

Does anyone know where to buy such one from?

Also, i’d like to get advise on other Android 5.0 or 5,1 based cheap for kids for ~$50.
