The phone comes in four color options — black, white, red, and gold. As mentioned above, the smartphone has been launched in China, but there is no word on when the company plans on launching the smartphone in other markets including India. At this price point, and with the kinds of specifications it features, the Pegasus X002 will be up against the likes of Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4G.
