Ulefone have posted the official specifications of their Ulefone Be Touch on their website ahead of a presale which will begin early next month.
The Ulefone Be Touch is one very long overdue phone. Originally named the Ulefone Dare N1, the device was set for a release during MWC but never made its way over to Spain. Instead the Dare N1 became the Ulefone Be Touch with a pre-sale date in early May.
Specifications for the Ulefone Be Touch had been seen at a Hong Kong fair early in the month, where the phone was listed with a 5.5-inch HD display. Confusingly our Ulefone contact told us that the phone would launch with an FHD display, then turn around today and tell us that the first launch is for a HD only model, with a FHD version planned (but not confirmed) for a launch at the end of May.
A flagship device with HD display is odd but not totally uncommon, Mlais recently announced their M7 with a 1280 x 720 panel also.
In addition to being a HD panel, the Ulefone Be Touch will come with a 2.5D curved display, Mediatek MT6752 processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, quick charge function, 13 mega-pixel Sony IMX214 rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front and dual SIM LTE. The Ulefone Be Touch will have just a 2550mAh battery, so just as well it has only a HD panel, while supported networks include GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 (band5,band8,band3,band2), WCDMA: 850/900/1900/2100 (band5,band8,band2,band1), FDD-LTE: 800/1800/2100/2600(band20,band3,band1,band7).
Other details include Corning Gorilla Glass 3, front facting touch Fingerprint scanner, similar to the Apple Touch ID system, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. Dimensions are 158.1 x 77.4 x 8.60 at a weight of 160g while available colours will be Metal Grey and Silk White.
