Wouxun KG-D901 (DMR): Unboxing

Hams have a good option in the TYT MD-380, but I'm excited to see the comparisons with the Wouxun KG-D901. If you are already in the Wouxun ecosystem, this may be an easy choice for you since the KG-D901 shares accessories with radios like the KG-UV9D.

Wouxun KG-D901: Demo Units

"At first glance, The KG-D901 looks almost identical to the analog KG-UV9D and KG-UV9D Plus multi-banders, with the large, color LCD display first introduced in popular KG-UV8D and now considered a standard fixture in the latest generation of Wouxun portable handheld transceivers. It has the same keypad layout found on both the 8D and 9D models and the same array of buttons on the side. It has the volume and channel knobs, TX/RX LEDs and flashlight typically found on the other Wouxun radios as well.
As soon as you turn it on, however, the similarities end. It may look and feel familiar on the outside, but this is not a typical analog Wouxun radio at all. It's digital. As a Wouxun product, the KG-D901 is something entirely new. 

Key Features 
Unlike the 8D and 9D, the D901 is a single band transceiver, in your choice of either a UHF or VHF version. Most of the primary features are expected, and compared to other DMR digital radios, they may not seem particularly unique. However, there is one item on the list that may give the D901 a little extra. It is noted in bold.
  • 400-470MHz UHF frequencies (UHF Model)
  • 136-174MHz VHF frequencies (VHF Model)
  • Analog and Digital Modes
  • Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) digital technology
  • Direct and Repeater Modes
  • 16 memory channel and 2 Zones
  • Built-in CTCSS/DCS signaling in analog mode
  • Text Messaging (Digital Mode)
  • All Calls, Group Calls, Select Calls (Digital Mode)
  • Scrambler Function (Analog Mode)
  • Digital Encryption
  • Microphone Modulation Setting
  • IP57 Water Resistant"
"The KG-D901 package includes one KG-D901 single band UHF or VHF two way radio (depending on your version of choice), a 7.4v, 2000mAh battery pack, belt clip, antenna, desktop charger, AC power cord, and wrist strap. The demo models we received did not include a manual, but we expect one to be in the box when the final version of the radio ships from Wouxun.
The Wouxun KG-D901 is expected to arrive early summer 2016."

Wouxun KG-D901: 2016 Release

Wouxun says the KG-D901 will be released next year. They also say there will be a KG-D900 - it will not have a keypad like the D901. So, it is real, but no firm date for it to be in someone's hands.

Wouxun KG-D901: DMR HT

Is it real? Will it be real? I had seen the image before. The BuyTwoWayRadios guys discuss what we know - which is basically only what you can see in the picture below. Wouxun won't confirm or deny the existence of the DMR radio.
