CONG announced the Shallots Metal Flagship and Standard EditionToday China-based CONG presented its latest smartphone - the Shallots Metal a.k.a. Qing Cong Metal. Actually, the name in Chinese means "green onions" and yes, it is quite strange to name a device that way, but most probably the true meaning is lost in translation, so we will leave it at that. Despite the awkward choice of name, the model has a decent list of specifications. For starters, it has two variants, which differ in lot of ways, so we'll describe them separately. The Qing Cong Metal Flagship Edition packs a big 6-inch IPS display with 2K resolution (1044 x 2560) and a 2.5D curved glass. It graces an all-metal unibody made of 6063 aircraft-grade aluminum created with the CNC process and painted by using a special nano-tech. The model's hardware is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset that has a 2GHz octa-core CPU coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. The latter can be expanded with up to 128GB. The flagship also has a 16-megapixel primary shooter with PDAF, LED flash and an f/2.0 6-element lens with blue glass filter. There is also an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. On the back is placed a fingerprint scanner as well. The whole thing is powered by a 5100 mAh battery. The Qing Cong Metal Standard Edition also has an all-metal body made of anodized magnesium alloy with the application of nano-injection painting process and further treatment with zircon sand. The design is complemented by a 3D arc glass, which is anti-reflective, protects against scratches and is 7H hardness reinforced. It features a 5.5-inch IPS display with an FHD resolution and a 64-bit MediaTek chipset with an eight-core CPU, 3GB of RAM and 16/32GB of storage, which can be expanded with up to 128GB. In addition, the standard model packs a 13-megapixel Samsung rear camera with an f/2.0 lens, PDAF plus a 5-megapixel Samsung selfie snapper. It has a fingerprint scanner on the back and is powered by a 3050 mAh battery. Both models run CONG OS and support 4G LTE networks. They are also impressively affordable as the standard edition is priced at CNY 799 (USD 125) and the flagship edition costs CNY 1999 (USD 312)! Both will go on sale on December 12th in China.Source
