THL W8S Announced for November
It looks like THL is very serious with the local technology and gadget market here. After the successful launches of their entry-level quad-core THL W100 and premium THL W11 Monkey King, they’re back with a new flagship called the THL W8S. This new phone features a 5-inch Full HD display, turbo quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, and 32GB internal storage (expandable via microSD card). It’s definitely a very competitive spec sheet, one that you can’t ignore anymore. Only thing missing really is LTE and you’re golden.
Speaking of spec sheets, here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect with the THL W8S.
THL W8s Spec Sheet
- 1.5GHz Quad Core MediaTek MT6589T processor
- PowerVR SGX544MP graphics
- 2GB RAM
- 32GB internal storage, expandable via MicroSD
- 5.0-inches Full HD IPS LCD display, 1920 x 1080 resolution
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- 13.0 megapixels primary camera with autofocus and LED flash
- 5.0 megapixels secondary facing camera
- 3G, HSPA+, WiFi, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
- 2,000 mAh battery

We’re a bit concerned with the 2,000mAh battery especially since this has fHD. However we’re confident that brightness and 3G management should be enough to get us through a full day. Anyway, we’ll definitely try to get our hands on a review unit as soon as it becomes available in November.
