Take the UMi X3, tweak the specifications to fit under a budget and you have the all new UMi C1. The best looking budget UMi so far.
UMi have had an interesting past. After launching the hugely popular UMi X1 a few years ago, the company hit the spotlight again last year with the UMi X2. But since then the UMi candle has been burning low, despite even the launch of the UMi X3.
The problem seemed to be that although UMi could make a capable flagship, they always seemed to produce lack-luster low to mid-range smartphones (take the latest UMi X1 for example!).
This is all behind them now and a new mid ranger is about to turn the company around. The UMi C1 is based around the chassis of the flagship X3, so you can be sure it is a great looking smartphone, and hardware has been tweaked to make it more affordable.
A quad-core MT6582 processor and 1GB RAM plus Android 4.4.2 are always a good mix when building a powerful phone on a budget. Throw all that in to a great looking steel chassis with 5.5-inch 720p Gorilla Glass display, micro SD card expansion and 13 mega-pixel main camera and it is all looking very peachy.

UMi C1 pricing and launch dates are currently locked up in secrecy so keep posted. Also, our sources tell us that the C1 isn’t the only phone to look out for in the coming months. Another unknown model with AMOLED display and 4G LTE is also set to hit stores soon!
