UMi X1 has 57,000 preorders in one day!


This morning I wrote about the UMi X1, and how it is basically a slimmer version of the JiaYu G3, only a little cheaper, what I didn’t realise was the X1 also shared its official pre-order day with the JiaYu G3 and has already reached a phenomenal 57,000 preorders in 24 hours!

Looking at the UMi X1 it is obvious to see that the Chinese phone company behind it have very much been influenced by the Xiaomi M1 and newer M1s.

The overall design of the X1 is practically the same as the budget Xiaomi phones but in is much thinner at only 8.5mm, and in black it reminds me of a slim Ninja Xiaomi M1!

For 888 Yuan ($139) the X1 represents pretty amazing value for money, as it boasts the same excellent specification as the JiaYu G3, meaning you get a dual-core MT6577 CPU, 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM and an excellent 4.5 inch 1280 x 720 display.

Chinese buyers are obviously impressed by the great specification and rather fetching design of the UMi X1 as over 57,000 fans of the phone have already pre-ordered the phone! Which makes the UMi X1 another desirable Chinese phone which will be near impossible for international buyer to get their hands on anytime soon!

    Hi Andi,
    do you think that people from Europe (like me) or America or where esle will be able to get one of those phones like g3, x1, m2, goophone i5 and others? There are a lot of sellers of course i know, but as you said before, they sell first in chinese market, don’t they, and they musn’t have a lot of them?

      @Telmo it seems like a lot of guys here have already ordered the G3 via online sellers. It might be worth waiting a few days to hear what they say. Some people are reporting they should get their phones by next week! It’s thats true this it is great!

    I have given up hope on getting 1 of this china hot phone,

    BEDOVE X12 seems to be the only one available that is shipping worldwide with specs close to the top 6577 models.

    Does anyone have a comment, review or idea if the BEDOVE X12 is a good alternative?

    How about that new one? I’ve searched for the product band (Youmi) and found nothing..i dont know how it will be after launched, but for now i did not find anything, nor even a review on youtube.

    Newman n1 looks nice as jiayu g3. But screen in jiayu g3 is better…i would like to buy a white phone, for girlfriend…so im still in that doubt. If jiayu had white color, i would not have this doubt anymore…
