UMi is a China-based smartphone manufacturing company some of you might not be that familiar with. This is not exactly a huge company, but they've been releasing smartphones for quite some time now, and are trying to offer a compelling product in the end. We have reviewed some of UMi's phones, like the UMi Iron and UMi eMax Mini, for example, and those handsets were not great, but were good enough, especially for the price point. The thing is, UMi's devices seem to be getting better and better, and this company has just released spec and pricing info for their new handset, the UMi Touch, read on.
The UMi Touch actually packs in a really solid set of specs, similar to the one you'll find in the UMi Iron, for example. The UMi Touch features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card). The 13-megapixel shooter (Sony's IMX328 sensor) is placed on the back of this phone, and a 5-megapixel snapper can be found up front. The 4,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and this is also a dual-SIM handset (hybrid dual-SIM). The UMi Touch will be available in Gray color option only, at least for now. It is also worth mentioning that this phone is made out of metal.
Now, you might be looking at these set of specs and wonder how much this phone might cost. Well, the phone actually costs $179.99, but it can be purchased for only $99.99, which seems like a very affordable price point considering what sort of internals this handset sports, not to mention it's made out of metal. How can this handset be purchased for $99.99? Well, as part of UMi's Partner Program. You can apply until February 15th at UMi's official website and authorized stores, you'll need to provide an e-mail address, and the company will send you a partner code on February 16th. That is more or less it, this handset isn't exactly expensive at $179.99, but it becomes a bargain of sorts at $99.99. Keep in mind that we still didn't get a chance to review this smartphone, so can't really vouch for it., the company's previous offerings were relatively solid though, as already mentioned.
