UMi has been teasing a couple of new devices recently. The company has released the UMi EMAX handset a while back, and it has been available for purchase since the beginning of this month. The company has also teased two new devices, their new flagship, UMi Iron, and UMi’s upcoming bluetooth headphones. We’ve seen quite a few leaks when it comes to the UMi Iron, we know that the device will sport a full metal body, be only 7.9mm thick, and will ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop pre-installed. The device will also come with a 25MW directpath from Texas Instruments, which should improve the Hi-Fi audio output on this device. The 13-megapixel rear-facing camera (Sony’s IMX214 sensor) and an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter have also been more or less confirmed.
That being said, we now have some additional (confirmed) details regarding this handset. The phone will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) LTPS display, and UMi will launch a number of giveaways starting June 23rd, which is also the phone’s release date by the way. This news was released via the company’s official Facebook account, if you’d like to check that out, follow the source link down below. The device will be available for pre-order starting June 29th (worldwide), and we’ll also offer you some benefits when purchasing this handset. We’re still working out the details, and as soon as we set everything in place, you’ll be the first to know. There you have it folks, we’ll let you know as soon as we get more details regarding both this handset, and the upcoming giveaway and contest, so stay tuned for that.
We don’t have that many UMi Iron images available, but you can check out the phone’s back and UMi’s teasers in the gallery down below. The device will also sport a dual-LED flash next to its protruding camera on the back. Both the lock / power and volume rocker buttons will be located on the phone’s left-hand side it seems. Either way, stay tuned for more info.
UPDATE: we managed to get our hands on what seem to be the official renders of the UMi Iron, check them out in the gallery down below!
