UMi’s NFC equipped version of the Cross phablet will officially go on sale on the 1st December, more details here.
The UMi Cross is the current flagship smartphone from the Chinese phone maker and has only been on sale for a few months, but is already getting an upgrade. From the 1st December the Cross will be available with NFC built-in allowing you to easily connect and sync to other devices. The rest of the hardware including the 6.44-inch FHD display, and 1.5Ghz quad-core processor remains unchanged.
8-core UMi Cross?
Based on past experience with UMi and the Chinese phone market in general, we believe that an 8-core version of the UMi Cross will also make it’s way to market in the coming months. In fact anyone who is planning to get a Cross might want to hold on for this version as we found the quad-core chipset in the current model struggles to handle certain games.
