Everything we know about the UMi X3, specifications and preview

The new UMi flagship phone has been seen in leaked photos online and on Facebook and we know from good authority that the UMi X3 should be available to buy from February, so what are the full specifications of the phone? Keep reading to find out.

UMi X3 Design

UMi can’t really be called a Shanzhai (clone maker) company but they don’t make the most original phones on the market either. Their first flagship phone, the UMi X1 looked like the original Xiaomi M1S, the X2 was similar to a Samsung design and the UMi X3 is a combination of iPhone, Meizu and iPad mini.

From the front of the device the UMi X3 looks almost identical to the Meizu MX3, although the screen bezels on the Meizu are thinner. The UMi even has a similar capacitive home button to the Meizu which in some leaks is the same halo designs and other leaks looks like the home button found on Apple devices.

Looking at the UMi X3 side on is where the real Apple influence shines though. The tapered alloy edges around the display are reminiscent of the edges of the iPad mini .

The rear of the phone is your basic candy bar design. A rear facing camera at the top left with dual LED flash sat to the right. The XIII logo with various official makes are printed along the bottom.

So it might not have the most unique origins of any smartphone, but UMi have done a good job of tying all these influences in to a smart looking final product measuring just 7mm at it’s thickest thanks to a unibody design.

UMi X3 Specifications

We really like what UMi have done with the specifications on the UMi X3. They could have easily launched this phone at the start of 2014 with lower specs, but chose to source better hardware which will benefit those buying the flagship phone.

The display for example is a 5.5-inch FHD 1920 x 1080 unit sourced from LG, and is apparently the same display found on high-end LG phones!. UMi have also gone for the faster 2.0Ghz version of the octacore MT6592 processor, complete with 2GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Network support is even better than average with the first version of the UMi X3 coming with TD-SCDMA, WCDMA and GSM support and future models boasting 4G LTE.

UMi X3 Pricing and launch date

Our sources at UMi have told us that the X3 will be available after the Chinese New Year, so we are expecting a similar mid-late Feb launch date as the iOcean X8. Pricing should also be on par with the iOcean with international retails prices being around $300.

We have also heard from other brands who will be offering the UMi X3 under their own name, so watch out for any bargains which might be on offer.

    Article says 64GB internal but the table at the bottom says 32GB?
    Also do you know what WCDMA frequencies other than 2100MHz? Both 850 and 900MHz?

      I guess that the article talk abt the normal version, and the lte version together.
      The 64 gb are certainly for the lte version.

      I would also love some confirmation on WCDMA frequencies. Most sites have it listed as only 2100. I’m really hoping for 850 as well.

    Andi I thought that Umi X3 has 3GB of ram but the article says 2GB while the table says 3GB. Which one should we take?
    Is it 3GB or 2GB?

    And is it 32GB or 64GB inbuilt memory?

    Please clarify.

    I’m almost making up my mind about the Umi X3. Seems I’m gonna let go of the 3D69 since Umi X3 offers more in terms of hardware.

    • January 30, 2014

      2GB, 32GB and 64GB

      • January 30, 2014

        Hmm …. I suppose the only difference between Umi X3 and the 3D69 is the fact that Umi X3 has 3150mAH battery and 3D69 has 2350mAH while 3D69 has naked eye 3D display and Umi X3 doesnt. Difficult choice to make between these 2.

        But if the 3D69 comes with 2 batteries, then I will certainly buy that in place of the Umi X3.

        3D69 does have some really nice features though including being used as a remote control …

        Keeping my arms crossed …
