Gaming Smartphones Are Still a Thing - In China

In North America, mobile gaming is a bit more casual on our smartphones than it is in China. Here if we want a good mobile gaming experice, we invest in a Nintendo 3DS, Razer tablet or other game-centric device. In China - they have some pretty sweet smartphone/portable gaming consoles. In fact, the Snail Mobile i7 is the illegitimate child of a PS Vita and a Nokia Lumia 1050. It's large, and the gaming experience is very solid. Why can't we have nice things here?

Now, the i7 is powered by MediaTek's 10-core, tri-cluster Helio X20 (MT6797) processor, so it's more of a mid-range device. You obviously wouldn't be getting the same level of performance as you would with Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 835, but it's still a good chipset for this price. It also features a 5-megapixel front camera and a 16-megapixel main camera on the back, though there's no word on what kind of image quality to expect from them.
