UMi Cross rear panel and chassis hands on, UMi X3 on the drawing board!


UMi look like they are ready to launch their 6.44-inch UMi Cross tablet, and although we haven’t had chance to get a hands on (yet) we did get to see the rear case main chassis.

Speaking to UMi designer “Superman” we discover that the UMi Cross has been designed around the ‘Golden dimensions”and has been designed with gaming, web surfing in mind.

The phablet will be available in either white or blue with a square pattern, and UMi promised us that it would be stiff and durable thanks to the steel chassis.

Specs are similar to the iOcean Skyfall with a 6.44-inch 1080 display, 1.5Ghz quad-core MT6589T processor, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel camera and a choice of either a standard Android install or Aliyun OS. We should be getting a hands on with the UMi Cross soon, and they have promised to send over a review unit as soon as they can.

After chatting about the UMi Cross the conversation moved on to the UMi X3, more specifically they have mentioned that they plan to launch a device similar to the UMi X2 only thinner, with a larger battery and updated ROM. An increase in size was mentioned, but we could be looking at a new and improved, thinner and lighter X2 rather than a whole new device.
