UMi Iron To Get Retina Scanning Capability Soon

July 1, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

We’ve talked quite a lot about UMi Iron lately, a number of rumors and leaks surfaced prior to its announcement, and the phone is now available for pre-order via a number of China-based resellers. This is a premium built handset by UMi, and even though we’ve listed its specs a number of times, UMi wanted to make sure everything is covered. The company has reached out to us and shared the full spec details when it comes to this device, so if you’re interested, read on.

The UMi Iron is made out of metal, and you can check its design in the gallery down below. You’ll notice that the phone doesn’t sport any capacitive buttons on its body, you’ll use the on-screen software buttons which are a part of this package. The UMi Iron features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 64GB). This handset is powered by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor, and the device will ship with a 3,350mAh battery. The UMi Iron sport a 13-megapixel camera on its back (Sony’s IMX214 sensor), while the 8-megapixel snapper (OmniVision’s sensor) is available up front. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed on this device, and 4G LTE connectivity is also available here.

The device also offers an LED notification (RGB LED) light at the very bottom of the phone, as you can see in one of the images down below. The device also ships with a heart rate monitor and UV sensor for health applications, and a Texas Instruments Hi-Fi audio is also a part of the package. Interesting enough, this device will also get an eye scanner capability with an OTA update which will roll out on July 6th. So, as you can see, this phone really packs in a lot in terms of specs and features, but doesn’t cost all that much. The device is priced at $179.99, and can be pre-ordered via a number of Chinese resellers which can be found on UMi’s official webpage. That being said, check out the gallery down below for more info.
