Chinese manufacturers have been making some really appealing devices as of late, Xiaomi, Meizu, Elephone, etc. One manufacturers we just can’t leave out of this list is definitely IUNI. This China-based manufacturer has unveiled its IUNI U3 offering last month and has left many people speechless. This device comes with a flagship specifications and is yet extremely affordable and one would argue you won’t be able to find a device that well specced for a lower price. IUNI U3 comes with a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display from Sharp along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of in-built storage. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz is powering this thing along with Adreno 330 GPU which comes with it. On the back of the device you can find a 13-megapixel camera while there’s a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter included as well. 3000mAh is also included and should make sure your device lasts until nightfall before you need to plug it in. Android 4.4.4 OS comes pre-installed on this device with IUNI OS on top of it. This is an LTE capable device as well and it comes in a rather beautiful body.
Talking about the build of the device, we have a bunch of images for you in a gallery below, courtesy of Tech Sina. We didn’t have many up close detailed images of the device up until now (aside from renders). As you can see from those images this device sports a rather slim side bezels and even though it seems rather generic at first, it is made out of magnesium alloy and the display has a 2.5D curve to it. The device costs 1999 Yuan in China (which is around $320). There’s still no word on international availability though, hopefully IUNI will give us more information regarding that soon considering there could be plenty of potential buyers outside of IUNI’s home country. What are your thoughts on this device? I personally do know a significant amount of people who could be interested in something like this as long as IUNI manages to keep the price relatively affordable, as close as possible to its price in China. It will be interesting to see how many IUNI U3 devices will company sell in the coming month.
