As an Employee of tesco phone shop i am looking forward to this new phone. and no it will not be a cheap cina knockoff as u like to put it!
Tesco and a high-end smartphone?!
This is not a good combo!
It will probably be a cheap chinese knockoff with some Tesco stuff/apps on top of it.
Guess they saw the potential when they were selling the cheapest Moto G (135£) in the world.
Still best price/performance phone on the market at the moment.
Hope they can beat that (specs and price wise)! :)
Anonymous, 07 May 2014AHAHA!!! enjoy your 1GB RAM and dual Core processor. thats soo 2011 bro catch up aha!!Are you refering to the iPad Air? :D
The Hudl has a quad-core CPU.
As an emoloyee in Tesco, Iam proud to see this news. Tesco Hudl is a super hit product. As like Hudl this android phone also Tesco will outsource. I think all the softwares which are related to the phone will design in Tesco HSC BANGALORE INDIA. It is a good move from a wellknown retailer to enter into the competitive market. We can see nice competition

Its going to be in competition with the Moto G. Going to need to Higher specs and better price. The 16GB Moto G is £139 on pay as you go. So good luck with that Tesco!

the phone can get market by its spec..for that it will be needed 4.5 or5 inch hd ips lcd capacitive touchscreen with at least 441ppi pixel density..13megapixel camera with 1080pixel hd video recording..front camera shuould be at lest 3.2megapixel with 720pixel..it should have 2gb of ram..1.5ghz quad core processor..gpu-snapdragon 800 or up..it should have at least 2500mah li-ion battery..its weight should be in the range of 160gm.....
Tesco given Unexpected move to other mobile manufactures, It's strange by an retailer.
It might seem strange that a retailer would release their own smartphone... Err Amazon???
I see that some of the commenters here doesn't understand that 1080p is useless and not so different from the 720p
It'll suck the battery and weaken the processor for nothing
probably this marks the start of designer smartphone in the market just like designer watches
If it looks like an iphone 5s with expandable memory, metal clad, Android os 4.4.2 maximum 4.5 inch, 1920x 1080 and minimum 13mp camera. Would definitely be a good seller.

OLD NEWS ! tesco mobile shall be for tesco customers value added with tesco club card points - meant for masses -Not top end ..tesco NOW has good deals if you have tesco mobile+broadband+landline package riding on O2 in uk ..
Spec's will more likely be something in the range of:
4.5-4.7" 1280x720 LPS Screen,
1.2-1.5Ghz Quad core Mediatek N6589/T,
4-8 GB storage + MicroSD upto 32GB,
13 MP rear camera/ 5 MP front camera.
I know some of you will disagree with me, but this is what I want the main technical specs to be. Please forgive me if I make some errors.
4.4 inch 1920x1080 touchscreen
Android 4.4.2 KitKat (obviously)
13 MP Camera + 2.2 MP front facing camera
Snapdragon 800/801 running at 2.3 GHZ
On screen buttons
I'm not the best at predicting specs, but hey, can't perfect anything right?
P.S The report of this on the BBC said it is meant to compete with the GS5, so that's why I have predicted high specs.
