UMi had a fantastic year this year with the dual-core MT6577, but judging by these photos and specs 2013 is going to be even better thanks to the quad-core, 5-inch Umi X2!
We have already heard rumour about the upcoming Umi flagship phone, but thanks to these leaked photos this is the first time we have had a chance to glimpse the new model in the flesh!
What we know about the Umi X2
From the leaked details and promotional material, we know that the UMi X2 will feature a 5-inch full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and “low power consuming” quad-core processor.
The processor of course will be one of Mediatek’s new MT6589 units which can be clocked at speeds of 1.2Ghz to 1.6Ghz and has been especially developed to use less power than rival CPU’s. The MT6589 also bring dual-sim WCDMA/GSM standby.
As for the design, Umi have dropped there ultra-thin Xiaomi look-a-like body in favour of a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 style which is said to measure in at about 8.9mm and have a bezel (screen edge to body edge) of around 4mm.
Unlike the JiaYu G4 which has managed to receive a vast number of updates and remain at the 999 Yuan price point the UMi X2 is expected to go on sale for 1499 Yuan ($240) which is likely due to the larger 1080 HD display.
