UMi release final specifications of their UMi Zero smartphone


umi zero final specs

Although we have seen most of the specs from leaks and our sources, today UMi have finally officially posted the specifications of their “Superbody” UMi Zero smartphone.

The UMi Zero is a big deal for UMi. In the past this Chinese phone maker have had a bit of a roller coaster ride from sitting pretty with the UMi X2, to issues with fake distributors destroying their reputation.

UMi have survived though and are hoping to rise from the ashes once again with the help of the all new UMi Zero. On the face of things the Zero is a very compelling device with a 2.0Ghz octacore processor, 2GB RAM, Android 4.4, Super Amoled display and F1.8 Sony main camera, but the lack of 4G LTE and a high price tag are issues we’re not sure customers can ignore.

UMi Zero Specifications

From the official specs the phone looks like a winner, well if would had it been launched earlier in the year. As it stands the phone is still a great looking device, especially at 6.4mm with a 2780mAh battery, but with LTE missing and a $299 USD international price tag, the cost of the glass and alloy phone might be hard to stomach.

If we had been in charge of the Zero we might have dropped the Super AMOLED display in favour for a standard 1920 x 1080 unit and used the spare change to either add a Mediatek MT6290 LTE modem or a new MT6595 or MT6732 chipset.

What do you think of the UMi Zero, and how well do you think this flagship smartphone is going to sell?

    At 300$ with no 4G? They won’t sell this shit. In the pictures the phone is looking good, but the reality is different story. 220$ is the fair price!

      Yeah, that’s true. Still think my Xperia Z, which is ~$200 now, is better than this phone.

    I don’t really need 4g but at least give me some usable 3G frequencies.

    and these ugly phat bezels. 70.5mm wide is too much for a 5″ ‘superbody’. check out comparation with a really good bodied phone

    Quality of camera results will make or break for me.
    Would like to see a list of all current and forthcoming phones with the IMX214, especially at the budget end. An international version of the TCL Memeda would be perfect.

    They mention before more compact dimensions 137.37 x 66.36 x 6.4mm… 146 x 70.5 x 6.4mm is so fat bezels… wtf?

      Those dimensions were impossible after the render came out, either the dimension was wrong or it’s a 4.7″ phone. Turn out it was the former as expected.
