UMi is one of the many Chinese companies which are manufacturing smartphones. We’ve reviewed a couple of UMi-branded devices this year, including the company’s eMax and Iron smartphones, in addition to their Voix Blu Bluetooth headphones. The company is constantly teasing their upcoming smartphones, and we’re expecting several of them to launch in the coming weeks. One of those smartphones is UMi Fair, a handset we’ve already talked about in previous articles. After a number of teasers, the company has finally revealed when will this device going to be released, read on.

The company has announced that the UMi Fair will be unveiled on September 25th.
