UMi S1 Hands on Video HTC Butterfly Clone

More evidence that the UMi S1 could go on sale ahead of the UMi X2 in this hands on video of the next quad-core MT6589 phone.

The UMi S1 is quite a departure from what the brand is known for. The UMi X1, X1s and X2 are largely unique in design, although their are a few similarities between the Xiaomi M1 and the UMi X1, but neither phone could be descried as a clone.

The UMi S1 however can easily be described as a clone. This new phone looks almost identical to the HTC Butterfly/Droid DNA. Everything about the S1 from the red and black colour scheme to the 5-inch display looks like it has been lifted straight from the HTC device!

There are obviously differences though. The UMi S1 runs on a quad-core Mediatek CPU with 1GB RAM for starters. The display is a 5inch 720p unit rather than full HD 1080, and cameras are 5 mega-pixel front 12 mega-pixel rear.

Chinese online reseller Antelife are current listing the UMi S1 as available fro pre-order at a price of $229.99 which suggests to us the flagship X2 is going to be priced closer to $299.99 when it reaches resellers!
