June 22, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Ulefone is a China-based smartphone OEM which released quite a few phones thus far. The company’s latest device, the Ulefone Be Touch 2, is a very solid device. This smartphone is actually the company’s new flagship, and it does offer a really nice set of specs, while it doesn’t cost all that much. The company has officially announced this device earlier this month, and the device is available for pre-order for $229.99 via Chinese resellers at the moment. In case you’re interested though, check out the special promotion that we’re currently running on our site, you can get a rather serious discount when purchasing this thing.

That being said, we have some new info regarding this handset. Ulefone plans to release third-party ROMs for the Ulefone Be Touch 2 in the future. The company usually pre-loads stock Android, and then adds some of their own stuff on there, like various gestures for example. Well, ti seems like they’re planning to release a set of ROMs for the device in the future. The company has actually conducted a survey on their official Facebook account in order to see which ROM is the most desired one by their consumers, and it seems like CyanogenMod and MIUI came on top, and were followed by EMUI and Flyme. It seems like Ulefone plans to release the most desired ROM first, and then see what happens next, but the plan is to release as many of them as possible.

Ulefone’s CEO, Jason Liu, gave a statement regarding all this, but keep in mind that this is a rough translation: “Different people want different things, some want to use regular stock Android, others would prefer third-party ROMs. We’ll try to give our customers what they want, make something inspiring and enjoyable to use”. The Ulefone Be Touch 2 sports a 5.5-inch FullHD display, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The device is powered by MediaTek’s MT6752 64-bit octa-core SoC, and it also ships with a 3,050mAh battery. The 13 and 5-megapixel cameras are also a part of this package, and same can be said about 4G LTE connectivity, and the fingerprint scanner which doubles as a home button.
