Baidu, the Google of China, has recently released a highly affordable 899 yuan (about $142) Android-powered smartphone called Changhong H5018 that looks like the Nokia N9 and Lumia 800/900. The phone is built by Apple supplier Foxconn, and you might be interested to see how it is made in the factory. Baidu released the promotional video below providing a behind-the-scenes peek into the manufacturing process of the Changhong H5018. The verdict? The girl who assembles the pinky Baidu phone looks happy.
Baidu said they will announce a tie-up next week for new mobile devices, which is going to be similar when Dell launched a smartphone running on Baidu’s Yi platform last December. The new smartphone will run an upgraded version of Baidu Yi — called Baidu Cloud. Besides, the executive teased details of the launch that the company will announce a few partnerships next week, and that’s probably indicating Foxconn and ZTE or perhaps some other handset makers.
