Ulefone working on low-cost version of the Be Touch


Ulefone are planning to launch a new budget version of their latest flagship Be Touch model, named simply the Ulefone Be Touch 2.

The current Ulefone Be Touch some with 2.5D display, fingerprint scanner, 3GB RAM and MT6752 chipset for $219.99. It’s a great feeling phone and with nice features such as a Sony camera and Android 5.0 it is a quality flagship too.

Apparently though, Ulefone want to bring similar features to a new lower cost model with a planned retail cost of only $189.99. From what our sources have told us the new model will be named the Ulefone Be Touch 2 and feature a few details to help reduce the overall cost.

The chipset will be replaced with a MT6573 64bit chip and RAM reduced to 2GB RAM to help cut the cost around $30 less than the current Be Touch model. Parts which will remain unchanged are the 13 mega-pixel camera (although we don’t know if it will remain a Sony sensor), 16GB memory, 2550mAh battery and 720p 2.5D display.

What do you think of a lower cost Be Touch, do you think the reduction in power might harm the overall performance? Or do you welcome the new low price?
