Ningbo Bird is a firm from China, that was a big deal between 2003 and 2005, reaching the status of the biggest handset seller in the country in those years. After a period of relative absence, the brand is back, this time with a handset called the Bird L6.


It has been certified by TENAA recently and you can check it out above. This model feels a bit like a Huawei P8 and an iPhone 6, as far as the design is concerned. It measures 7.6 mm in thickness and weighs 160.5 grams, plus it integrates a 5.5 inch 720p screen and comes with midrange specs. I can’t tell if the case is metallic or not, but I guess it probably is.

Inside we find a mystery quad core 1 GHz CPU, accompanied by 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. The phone also uses an 8 megapixel main camera, 2 MP front shooter and a microSD card slot. The OS of choice is YunOS 3.0.1, coming from bigshot e-tailer Alibaba. It’s based on Linux and AOSP and it hit the Chinese market in 2011. Seeing these specs and the design, we estimate the product will be priced at $200 tops.
