Ulefone have begun pre-sales of it’s Be Pro phone, equipped with 64bit Mediatek chipset and 2GB RAM all for just $169.99.
For those of you just hearing of Ulefone for the first time, this is because the company have spent the majority of its life building phones for other brands as an OEM. You could even have a Ulefone in your pocket right now.

Using the supply chains they have built up while manufacturing other brands phones, Ulefone have put together their own smartphone with one of this years latest 64bit processors, and are selling the phone for only $169.99 internationally.
The Ulefone Be Pro is a 5.5-inch device with 720p display, 2GB RAM, 8 mega-pixel front camera and 13 mega-pixel rear shooter. The design is very much a OnePlus One wannabe, and even comes with an optional ‘Sandstone’ rear shell!
The big difference from the Ulefone Be Pro and other similar phones that have come before it are the quad-core MT6732 processor, that gives dual SIM 4G LTE and amazing performance (see the MT6732 benchmarks here), plus the promise of an Android 5.0 Lollipop update (the phone ships with 4.4.4).
Ulefone are so confident of the Be Pro that they have even created the following comparison against the ZTE V5 Max that retails at $199.99:
