Umeox were out in force at MWC and had a couple of new phones at their booth, but it was what was going on behind closed doors which has gotten us excited! According to our sources, Umeox had their 5-inch 1080HD phone at MWC too, but hidden away in a VIP only room. Thankfully we consider all Gizchina readers VIP’s and have spy photos and hardware details of the new Umeox F501.
According to our sources the F501 is scheduled to launch in May on Thomson Mobile as their 2013 flagship phone, it features a quad-core processor, 1920 x 1080 display and 13 mega-pixel rear camera with revolutionary imaging technology developed by Technicolor!
The front of the F501 has a nice alloy facia which carries the speaker and subtle branding around the large 5-inch display.
The rear is more rounded than the angular front and reminds us of some of the Huawei phones we have seen over the past few months. The whole phone measures in at just 8.5mm, and as you can see it appears very thin in the photos.
The hardware is pure MTK flagship material as the F501 boasts a quad-core MT6589 chip, 3 mega-pixel front camera, 13MP rear, 1080HD video capture, OGS HD screen, Android 4.1 OS and optional NFC.
No word on pricing, but the release date in France and other European countries is penned in for September.
