Yuhua unveils the Android-based Xphone-SDK design reference

Chinese ODM Yuhua have recently unveiled their latest hardware design reference and it appears to be another Android based handset. The phone is called the Xphone-SDK and sounds like it will be a nicely spec’d model — I say “sounds like” because at the current time the Xphone-SDK is nothing more than a design reference. In other words, it has not yet been built.

As far as the specs, the Xphone-SDK features a 3-inch display with a 240 x 400 resolution, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth 2.0, a 3-megapixel camera and a microSD card slot that supports up to 16GB. Sadly, the phone is going to be limited to tri-band GPRS/EDGE support, however a 3G version was mentioned as a future possibility. Additionally, it has 128MB SDRAM, 256MB internal ROM and is powered by a 624MHz Marvell PXA-310 processor.

Now, getting back to the fact that this is currently just a design reference, that means there is not any expected price or availability. As of now, the design is currently available to OEM’s.
