May 13, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Ulefone is a rather new company which has announced five devices thus far. The newest addition to Ulefone’s lineup was Be Touch handset. This China-based company is selling this handset via a number of resellers like GeekBuying, Coolicool, FocalPrice… click here to check out the full list of resellers. That being said, this handset offers rather decent specifications considering its price isn’t all that high, quite on the contrary. The Ulefone Be Touch costs around $220 at the moment if you choose to order it via any of the aforementioned resellers. You can get more info by clicking the source link down below.

We’ll talk more about the specifications of this device a bit later, but first, let’s talk about one specific part of it, its fingerprint scanner. Like many other Chinese handsets released lately, the Be Touch sports a fingerprint scanner which doubles as a physical home button. In order to promote the fingerprint scanning ability of the Be Touch handset, Ulefone has released three videos via the company’s official YouTube account. The first video compares the fingerprint scanners of the Be Touch and iPhone 6, in the second one Ulefone is faced against the Meizu MX4 Pro, and the last video compares Ulefone’s handset with Huawei’s Mate 7 phablet which has a fingerprint scanner on the back. All of these devices actually have a push-to-activate variant of a fingerprint sensor, and it seems like Ulefone Be Touch did a good job in every situation here. If you’d like to check out those video clips, they’re embedded down below.

Now, regarding the specifications of this device, Ulefone Be Touch is definitely no slouch. This handset sports a metal frame and a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) IPS OGS 2.5D curved display on the front which is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. The Be Touch ships with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This device is powered by MediaTek’s MT6752 64-bit octa-core SoC clocked at 1.7GHz along with Mali T760 MP2 GPU. The 2,550mAh battery is also a part of this package, and 4G LTE connectivity is also available here. The 13-megapixel camera (Sony IMX214 sensor) is located on the back of this handset, and a 5-megapixel shooter (OmniVision’s OV5648 sensor) is available on the front side of this handset. Android 5.0 Lollipop comes out of the box with some additions from Ulefone on top of it, though it’s mostly stock Android.
