UMi X2 screenshots show the first quad-core MT6589 with 2GB RAM

UMi look to be on track to launch their flagship phone either later this month or early next month, and screenshots of the phone UMi X2 finally seem to prove that the X2 is in fact now running 2GB RAM!

Gizchina News of the week

The X2 looks to have been just one step away from heading in to full production, the pesky issue with compatibility between the quad-core Mediatek MT6589 processor and 2GB RAM. The first hint we had that the problem had been fixed was when the No.1 P7 mini Pad got an official launch date, and now it seems UMi have got a fix too.

The screen shots here show that the X2 is also running Android 4.2.1, has a PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU, 12.6 mega-pixel rear camera and 1.9 megapixel front.

So now all the pieces are in place how long will we have to wait we get an official release date for the UMi X2!

    The 480 ppi number looks suspicious too. 5″ 1080p is 440 ppi pixel density.

      April 16, 2013

      You right ! with 5″ 1080 x 1776 it must be 415 ppi .
      Unless the screen is 4,3″ then its true 483 ppi
      so tricky…

    MANAGEMENT LESSONS, how brand could spoil their image, if keeps giving false reply, and Marketing team is responsible for this, as they are not in sync with company policy/ethics or production department
    Another lesson, India cusotmer have good tolerance level, had it been in other country, Class suite by now would have begin

    Given to educate customers, nothing against UMI

    Still no wording from any one of UMI. Please admin if you have contact info of UMI member, then share or ask them to reply. They are not willing to do business I think, Just looting money.
