Ulefone is one of many China-based smartphone manufacturers most users are not that familiar with. This is a small company, but they’re trying to leave their mark in the smartphone industry, and gain some traction. Ulefone sells their smartphones through various Chinese resellers, and we’ve already reviewed some of them, like the Ulefone Be One, Be Touch 2, and Ulefone Power. A while back, the company’s ‘bezel-less’ Future handset popped up, and the company has actually introduced this smartphone during MWC this year. Well, we’ve just received the official press release with all the details which haven’t been available until now, read on.
If you take a look at the provided images, you’ll get to see the device itself. As you can see, there are basically no bezels on the sides, the phone’s display almost blends with the metal frame on the side. Furthermore, the bezels on the top and bottom aren’t that thick either, which makes this phone look really sleek overall. The company’s branding is placed on the very back of this device, and its rear-facing camera protrudes ever so slightly. The Ulefone Future features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) 2.5D curved display, along with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 32GB of internal storage. MediaTek’s Helio P10 (MT6755) 64-bit octa-core SoC clocked at 1.95GHz fuels this smartphone, and a 3,000mAh battery is available on the inside, and it is not removable. The 16-megapixel snapper is placed on the back of this phone, and same can be said for the dual-LED flash. The 5-megapixel shooter is available up front, and a Type-C USB port is located on the bottom fo this device. 4G LTE connectivity is also included here (FDD-LTE 800 / 900 / 2100 ; band 20, band 3, band 7). The fingerprint scanner is also available here, and interestingly enough, it is placed on the right-hand side of the device, as you can see in one of the images. The Ulefone Future measures 151.5 x 73.5 x 7.6mm, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed here with some additions by Ulefone.
There you have it, this is the Ulefone Future. This smartphone is expected to be available soon, but we still don’t know when exactly. We also don’t know how much will it cost, but knowing Ulefone, it will be quite affordable, like their previous offerings.
