According to him, The phone seems to be manufactured by “Truly Electronics”
There are some interesting points on his post which I would like to highlight them here for you guys:
- The memory is a “Micron MT42L256M32D2LK-18” (labeled as D9QMM) it’s a low power DDR2 memory
in a 216-ball FBGA package, soldered in top of the processor. Datasheet
- The RF amplifier it’s an ACPM-7251 manufactured by “Avago Technologies”.
Teoricaly, it supports GSM (850/900), EDGE (1800/1900), UMTS (850/900/2100) and LTE (850)Datasheet
- The audio CODEC it’s a Qualcomm WCD9304.
- The PMIC it’s a Qualcomm PM8038.
- The NFC controller it’s an PN544 (labeled as 44701) manufactured by NXP Semiconductors.
It supports read/write of ISO 14443–A, 14443-B, MIFARE, FeliCa and NFC Forum tags, and
it can emulate such devices. There’s a good chance it’s already hooked up into the I2C bus, so it
might be “hacked” and be used for something else than just reading TOHs. Datasheet
There are also some confusing news! I say confusing because I have no idea if they are good or bad.
Decision is yours!
- The aluminium usage on the device it’s merely anecdotic since it’s just a thin layer covering half of the frame border, so there’s no “heatsink” effect whatsoever but just a cheap way to make it look sturdier. Also, the buttons are actually made of rubber with the aluminum part glued onto them
