IUNI Cut the price of the Snapdragon 800 powered IUNI U2 to only 999 Yuan


iuni u2 price cut

It might have been launched at the start of the year, but the powerful IUNI U2 is still a great phone and not it costs almost as much as the entry-level Xiaomi Redmi.

As IUNI now have a new flagship phone, the 5.5-inch IUNI U3, the company have decided to slash prices of their IUNI U2 device to an incredible 999 Yuan ($163), making it the most affordable Snapdragon 800 smartphone on the planet.

The U2 also boasts 2GB RAM, impressive 16 mega-pixel rear camera, ultrapixel front camera, with a 4.7-inch 1080p display wrapped in an all alloy body. For those of you who need a little extra in the memory department there is also the 1199 Yuan version with 3GB RAM and 32GB memory.

From our own experience the IUNI U2 has a better camera than the new U3, and as such a small size and price we expect them to be flying off shelves. The only bad news is that there is no LTE on these phones and they will only be officially on sale in China, but keep your eyes peeled for deals.

    It seems this price is only on 11.11 singles day event? So, it is not a permanent price drop?

      it’s just a 11.11 price drop.We are going to see many of these deals on the following week.The problem is that if you don’t live in china you won’t be able to get those deals,period.Resellers are going to sell everything at the same price, you might get a 10$ off discount if you are lucky.

      i don’t think so, right now on the iuni’s website the price for the 16gb is CY 999 and 1199 for the 32gb.

            Hi Yury, thank you but I want to buy the phone at 1199 Yuan. On aliexpress the prices are around $300. I wanted to buy a Redmi 1S but if I could get the Iuni U2 32GB version, I will be very happy.

          Franck, you could buy it at vifocal or efox 🙂 at the lowest price that I found on the web (in english XD ) and probably I will buy it if I sell my xiaomi 1s.
          Edit: Don’t buy xiaomi redmi 1s , iuni u2 is better !!!

      Come on you own a BMW, you surely don’t need to wait for a price drop to buy this phone.

      Uhhh on second thought, that is your car, isn’t it?

        i think that there are two aspects of growing richer, earning more and spending wisely, so if someone would buy a little outdated, but still quite attractive model with a good discount, i wouldn’t mind.
        as for me, i would prefer u3. too small. 5″ would be much better.
        just for you 😀

          Actually I was very interested in the U3 until I found it was 10.3mm thick.

      Yes, it has English and Chinese as native languages, and it works with these bands

    • Maxiao
      November 2, 2014

      It doesn’t have an English language ROM. I’m sure of this because mine was delivered today and I just spent a long afternoon trying to work out why I couldn’t switch the system to English. Its a pity because its a really nice phone aside from this issue!

            Yury How do you switch to English? I tried everything i could including downloading a new ROM from the IUNI Website. I wrote to the store to ask for help, they told me:

            咨询内容:U2怎样设置成英语的?

            京东回复:亲爱的U友,您好!非常抱歉,目前U2只有简体中文,暂时没有英文版本。感谢您对京东的支持!祝您购物愉快!

            (Sorry but at the moment there is no English version)

            I’m about to return the phone so If you know how to change I’d be very grateful!

              No that is not what I need.
              I’m thinking on buying this phone but the problem is that I saw on a review on Youtube that he only had two touch points (meaning it can only detect two fingers)
              I wanted to ask you if this is true or not?

              Best regards and thank you for your help!

              I think it have 5 touch points 99.9%.

              I cant tell you exactly, it depends how to use phone.

              Quote “Finally, we talk about the battery life everyone concern. IUNI U2′s capacity is 2200 mah battery features the Samsung customized batteries with high density, and the built-in power meter can effectively improve battery performance and life. Through trial I found that, used in mild cases, one day power consumption is between 40% – 50%, and under the condition of standby power one night it lost about 1%- 2%, and in using process, I did not feel the apparent heat of the body.”
