Gradiente rejects deal with Apple, announces new iphone

Tuesday 30 July 2013 | 13:56 CET | News
Brazilian manufacturer Gradiente has refused a deal with Apple that would enable the American company to use the name iPhone in Brazil. In addition, Gradiente has gone a step further and announced the second version of its own "iphone". The iphone C600 is a dual-Sim device with Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, 5-inch screen (1280x720), 8 GB memory (32 GB with microSD), 13 MP camera and FM radio. The smartphone will arrive on the local market in October at "half the price of the competitor", Gradiente said.
