Here’s another set of Newsmy Newman N1 photos:
Newman N1 – different case colors.
Another good selling-point of this Newman N1 is its very stylish design, having nicely made color variations for back cover. Its definitely gives consideration to your choice. Pretty cool!
Newman N1 – white version
The white version of the Newman N1 really looks clean and sleek. You can see the 4-soft touch Android buttons on front and a nicely done back style. The curves also makes it look sexier. Reminds me of the Galaxy S3 actually!
Newman N1 – black
The black one really looks good either.

Some really classy-looking and very stylish handset here, brought to us by Newsmy. Agree?
Imagine this phone on your possession, how awesome that would be?
Without a doubt, this Newman N1 is another great contender on low-priced high-end Android smartphones category. It is relatively cheap, yet the specs are promising. However, since it hasn’t been released yet; price might change. It might increase or drop, we can never be sure. Also, the specs might change when it gets released. Some sources that it might come up with a Gorilla glass display, which makes me a bit skeptical as it could be of higher price. Let’s just wait, still this phone is another great phone to consider. JiaYu G3 or this? That is a very hard question to answer. The design of the Newman N1 is also another plus wow factor.
