JXD Awakes From Hibernation With Their “Singularity” S192 Handheld

The sleeping giant awakes! It’s been over 2 years since JXD released their last flagship handheld, the S7800B, and things have been very quiet from the ShenZhen based company since then.

The console also comes with a full HD 7″ screen, 2 cameras, at least 16GB internal memory, a 10,000mah cell and will run Android 5.0 out of the box.
