UMi Zero official price will be $299


After posting details of a rumoured retail price for the UMi Zero yesterday, UMi representevies got in touch and gave us the final official pricing details.

$299, is what it will cost for the latest UMi smartphone which is scheduled to go on sale in the coming weeks. The UMi Zero has been a phone that has grabbed the headlines a lot recently thanks to the attention to build, quality, materials and hardware, but with no LTE we wonder if the price is just a little too much?!

To recap the UMi Zero as a 6.4mm super body, made of an alloy material and featuring a 2400mAh battery build inside and fast charging. The slim device, is powered by a 2.0Ghz ocatcore MT6592T processor with 2GB RAM and has Android 4.4 as standard. There is even a decent 5-inch Super Amoled display with a resolution of 1080p.

With all that said the lack of LTE is enough to put many customers off by itself, but a retail price of $299 could be adding more fuel to the fire.

At $299, will you buy a UMi Zero?

    if 64G internal memory, a larger battery and a fast charging mode, yes I would

      Fast Charging mode is present
      I think that the main reasons for the high price is the screen Super Amoled from Samsung which is a must 🙂
      For me the only problem besides the price it’s the sd card as an option to a sim card, In other words if you want to use it as a dual sim, no sd card option

        Personally I am not a fan of Samsung’s Super Amoled screens they look too bright and the colors don’t look natural to me. I would prefer they used one of the LG or Sharp screens and then could have offered the phone for at least $50 less.

    At $299 I bought a OnePlus One… so definitely no way to buy, I’m afraid.

    299 is a bit much when you compare it to a OPO. Take 50$ off and you have a winner.

    Good luck with that lol
    With Zopo and Meizu at 300$ for 6595 and OPO and Mi3 with Snapdragon 801around that price also why would anyone get Umi with an outdated hardware?

    Lets wait for UMI Zero Turbo/Advance/II/T/X/S/2 with Mtk 64bits/3gb Ram/64gb IntMem… then, would be a killer.

    They call it the umi zero because consumers have zero intrest in the phone

    What a coincidence, Nubia Z7 mini is also around this price shipped internationally (not local price like Meizu or restriced to tier 1 country like OPO).
