Exclusive! UMi Cross official renders, pricing, specification and launch date!

Chinese phone maker UMi are ready to launch the next phone and first phablet. We have UMi Cross official renders, specifications, pricing and launch details here!

Our sources have managed to get the official details for the UMi Cross ahead of the launch! The UMi Cross will be UMi’s first phablet device and second ever 1080 display handset, but rather than being just a larger version of the UMi X2, the Cross gets some very nice updates!

UMi Cross Specifications

After seeing the leaked photos of the UMi Cross’s battery some days ago we know the new phone would be a huge device and the specs confirm it. The display is a 6.44-inch OGS panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a pixel density of 342PPI.

With such a large display UMi have shaved the bezels down to just 3.5mm to aid one-handed operation. The rest of the front is taken up with back lit navigation buttons, light sensors, and an 8 mega-pixel front camera.

Turning the UMi Cross over and we are greeted with a simple ‘Cross’ logo, and single LED flash. The highlight though is the rear camera which is a 13 mega-pixel Sony Exmor RS item with an F2.0 Aperture!

Under the removable rear panel the Cross hides a large 4150mAh battery! According to UMi the cross has a standby time of 350hours! Removing the rear also give you access to the dual sim slots and micro SD card reader which will accept up to 64GB cards.

The internal hardware is similar to the top of the range UMi X2 meaning it is powered by a 1.5-ghz MT6589T processor, 2GB RAM, a PowerVR SGX544 GPU, and has 32GB of built-in memory. However there is also an NFC Chip, HIFI stereo amplifier, MHL support, OTG, and Bluetooth 4.0.

    Andi, where is the neo review?

    • August 30, 2013

      Yes, We all are waiting for your Neo n003 review and want to see how it stas out against Xiaomi Mi2A, Faea F2, etc …

      • August 30, 2013

        A review after only a 1 week of use is going to give you the full picture is it?

        • August 30, 2013

          One week usage is more than enough for me. Neo came late, the same devices was 2 month ago. I can’t wait one more month, you know every week come new devices for sale, 2gb rom, 8-core soon, etc… Need this review now, for making decision about buying this item. Thank you for understanding.

            Take it easy man, it’s just a cell phone. Last time I checked this was a free site, I don’t think u r paying to get the reviews u r demanding.
            Fortunately u don’t buy cameras because dedicated webs can take months to review a single camera. I wrote dedicated because to me engadget is a news page with simple and sometimes biased reviews, I don’t know an equivalent to, for example, dpreview in cameras for cell phones, they’ve connect but just for the camera part.

          Arrogance Andi?

          You think Engadget spend one week or more with any item to review?

          Plus if you want to be on top of things you should be faster, not biased (as you are now, for example Jiayu above all) and more clear with your information. Lots of information is false on this site.

          So man up and do your job.

            Glad to see you appreciate what we do with the limited resources and time we have to do things 🙂

              You guys are jut too anxious because Andi was nice enough to put up a “first look” video of the Neo N003. If he hadn’t done that, you would never now he got the phone already.Stop acting so imature. Tip: learn how to use google and you will find that there are many reviews both written and in video form out there. Sigh!! Keep up the solid work Andi! And one more thing: I’m also really looking forward to your full in depth review on the Neo. 🙂

            • September 1, 2013

              Thanks Joel, it will be posted today 😉

      Why not?

      The UMI has also 5″ mobiles.
      But UMI 5″ has now old look. This 6,5″ looks quite better.

        Do give us your photo when you use the “phone” to make a call. With no bluetooth dongle.

    Sounds good:
    NFC Chip, HIFI stereo amplifier, MHL support, OTG, and Bluetooth 4.
    It looks very nice.

    But UMI has glossy, reflective screen to use it outdoor, in train, bus, … .

    Too big,these 6in phone look ridiculous when you pick a call,needing bluetooth headset. Might as well get a 7 in tab with 3g and same bluetooth headset.
