Breaking: iOcean Z1 will have new design and fingerprint scanner


iocean z1

Already offering 2 flagship phones, iOcean are looking to make it 3 with the release of a new phone under a new range. Take a look at the iOcean Z1!

We’ve seen the Rock, and the X9, but this is the first time we have seen the iOcean Z1. Specifications aren’t yet known, but the official leaked render of the device does answer a few key questions and gives us a general idea of what to expect from the phone.

Up front the display (5-inch?, 5.5-inch?) has a 2.5D taper to it which has become extremely popular with Chinese phone makers this year. The glass front looks to be bonded to an alloy chassis with two draws (for either dual sim or perhaps an SD card), while the rear of the phone has a brushed finish to it.

The rear also reveals a fingerprint scanner, and dual LED flash, both of which are features we haven’t seen on an iOcean phone so far this year.

There is currently no word on the specification, release date or price of the iOcean Z1 but we will let you all know once more news is available.

    Reminds me on Umi Zero.

      The sides look like Zero, the back reminds me of a Kingzone.

      Wishful thinking. Hopefully true. Probably not. #grainofsalt

      If I had to guess it would say 5.5 FHD, MT6752, 16GB, 2GB, Sony IMX 214 (13MP).

          Of course that is the result those are the most requested features of any new phone. Whether that actually happens is another story.

          Like the fact that the only thing everyone could agree on was the CPU! So MT6752 it is. lol

    Onscreen buttons? Hopefully not another big bottom chin. Looks nice so far. Can’t wait to see more.

    Umi Zero (or whatever its original OEM was) rebrand with updated spec.

      It doesn’t look like the Zero?

      • desponent
        May 14, 2015

        It does. Don’t be fooled by the render, look closer. If you don’t still think so, then I have no interest to make yo change your mind, I don’t really care lol.

          I can see that the shape is vaguely reminiscent of the Zero, but it you’d have to blind to say that’s the same phone as the Umi Zero.

    The iOcean Rock has been a big deception for me. Very poor GPS reception, and it was not a true 5,5″ since the three front buttons were on screen and not physical. This kind of problems from an established brand kill the love.
