K-Touch V8 (Hornet II) – Dual SIM confusion

Earlier this year TianYu presented their new K-Touch V8 (Hornet II) phone. The handset was pretty high-end with a 1.5GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core application processor, 8MP camera and a 4.5″ 1280×720 LCD screen. There has been some rumor that the device should support dual SIM operation.

Now that the device is be available for sale the dust settles a bit. It becomes clear that the phone only supports a single SIM card. All current and previous claims it could be dual SIM are wrong. Most probably the statement that this handset is supposed to support “dual networks” (whatever that means) was falsely translated to dual SIM.

Despite the confusion this phone looks quite stylish and with pice tag below $320 (2000RMB) and an amazing spec it is sure to make some noise in the market. See below for the spec and some nice pictures.
