Chinese phone start-up IUNI launched the IUNI U2 today, a phone which might give the OnePlus One a run for it’s money!

The IUNI U2 launched today in Beijing and follows a similar philosophy to the OnePlus One smartphone. Rather than producing a phone with top of the range this, and the latest that, the IUNI U2 makes sensible use of the best hardware which is easily available now!

IUNI will be offering 2 versions of the IUNI U2. The entry-level model which will cost just 1799 Yuan ($290) in China will have a 2.2Ghz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB memory, while spending a little extra will get you the 3GB RAM model with 32GB of storage.

The display on both versions is a 4.7-inch 1920 x 1080 Sharp panel with a pixel density of 469ppi. Both phones will also have a 16 mega-pixel main camera with F2.0 aperture, and interestingly a 4 mega-pixel ultra pixel front camera similar to the camera on the current HTC One. Unfortunatly it appears neither model will ship with 4G LTE.

The IUNI U2 will run the start-ups own IUNI os based on Android 4.3. IUNI say their OS is devoid of bloatware and clutter making it a fast and streamlined system.

Chinese E-commerce site Jingdong Mall will be selling the IUNI U2 from 1799 Yuan for the 2GB model, rising to 1999 Yuan for the 3GB, 32GB model.

    If this one will support WDCMA 850/900 it’s instabuy for me. And 4.7″ screen sounds perfect for me.

    Who needs LTE if you get package like 6gb… you will use it in half a day with LTE speeds xD

      6 GB? Yeah, we have 6 GB plans here in Canada… for 100 bucks a month (unless you’re one of those lucky people with a 50 buck grandfathered or retention 6 GB plan)!!!

      I don’t understand people. Just have one number, i don’t know what the problem is.

        1 personal number + 1 business number

        Some people need to use two numbers because they keep one for personal matters and another for business matters. It’s not a problem for some people, but for others it’s a very useful feature.

    This would be the perfect phone if it wasn’t for the last part. I hate the majority of Chinese Android builds. Just release a CM version and ill buy it.

      It’s not that easy for a new brand with no international recognition to get CM support. If they launched in the US like OnePlus, they would have a chance for unofficial support, but for now it’s highly unlikely that we’ll see CM on this.

      Airyl is right ,it was hard to get CM support for a new brand

      They’re new. The IUNI U2 is their first phone, but IUNI OS has been around for a while now.

    I can’t understand the negative feedbacks, by far this is the best Chinese phone this year, not overrated like the mi3, not full of unnecessary tech like the vivo and not as ugly as the gionee e7 and still have the looks, the smooth os, the e7 camera and perfect size for most ppl

  13. March 20, 2014

    Andi, I am very interested in this phone. Please kindly let us know when it goes on sale and where to buy it. I will buy this without thinking twice … I only hope that it has OTG, MHL/Miracast. I dont have ay use for NFC and LTE so they dont matter to me.

    Does anybody know if it has Playstore out of the box. and WCDMA 2100Mhz frequency? dont really care about 4G right now as Mongolia doesn’t have it. It would be really disappointing if its another TD-SCDMA crap.
