They include what the smartphone will look like, most of its specifications and even the version of Android it runs on.

According to those reports, the phone will reportedly run on a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 512MB RAM and come with a 4-inch screen and 4GB of storage. It is also said to feature a microSD card slot and five megapixel camera.

A Vietnamese website suggested that the phone may sell for as little as £66 when it launches.
