UMi C1 gets its Chinese retail price but what will it cost globally?

UMI are clearly very excited with the launch of their UMI C1 smartphone. The phone still hasn’t gone on sale just yet but Chinese sources are already talking about it’s cost.

If the UMi C1 sounds familiar it is because the name happens to also be the same as the UMi Cross phablet which went on sale earlier this year. If the C1 looks familiar, well that’s because it is basically a more affordable version of the UMi X3 octacore phone.

Chinese sources are saying that it has been confirmed the UMi C1 will cost 899 Yuan in the market. What that means for the international market we are not sure, but we do at least know the full specifications of the mid-range UMi phone.

Some decisions to reduce the cost of the UMi C1 when compared to the X3, the panel has been switched to a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 display, the octacore CPU to a quad-core MT6582, and 2GB RAM to only 1GB. Other details include a 13 mega-pixel main camera, 3.2 mega-pixel front, 3G, dual SIM support and a 2430mAh battery.

UMi are preparing to announce the cost of the C1 soon along with stores which will be stocking the phone. What do you think of the C1, its price and specifications?
