UMi Iron teased again, will get 3GB RAM


umi iron

UMi confirm the amount of RAM and the launch date of the UMi Iron smartphone coming this month.

UMi might have only just released the UMi eMax, but they aren’t taking a breather and already have the UMi Iron in the works and ready to roll. Today’s new teaser posted on the official UMi Facebook page confirms the Iron will boast 3GB RAM and will be officially unveiled on June 23rd on Facebook.

In an earlier leak UMi confirmed that the Iron would run Android 5.1 on a unanounced octacore chipset from Mediatek.

Knowing that UMi have boosted the RAM in the UMi Iron and are shipping the phone with the latest available version of Android tells us that the phone will sit at the top of the current UMi smartphone range. We have already heard rumours of a 2K display (like the next gen iOcean) and we expect to see around 32GB internal memory and room for a 128GB SD card on the phone.

We have also heard from our sources that the UMi Iron will feature a new mystery input technology that, so far, hasn’t been seen on rival devices. What ever that might be we are sure to learn more in the run up to the launch.

    If it does have a 2k display them it must pack the helio x10 as no other MT chip well run it, hopefully a 6″ screen as 2k is pointless in anything smaller, shouldn’t have much longer to wait.

      Yep I feel ya Rob. Hoping that this has 6″ at least.

        Can’t believe I’m looking forward to an Umi phone, desperate times…….

      that unannounced chip must the helio P10, its got similar cpu performance as the x10, but far better gpu, and is cheaper

        The P10 isn’t supposed to be available till end of this year, I am pretty sure it hasn’t even started production yet.

          You beat me to it, the P10 if we’re lucky should be available I reckon in the run up to xmas, followed a month or 2 later by the X20. Lots to look forward to but it makes it difficult to know what to buy now!

            I would say Xmas we might see a few devices from someone like HTC or Meizu with the P20, the masses (companies like Umi, Elephone etc) probably won’t debut devices with it till February/March. But thats a not a bad thing, the current SoC’s from MTK are some of the best by any brand and the potential of them and their 64 bit tech is still being explored.

    5.5 fhd + 3gb ram +32 gb + mt6795 or mt6752 for 250$ resealler price would be great 🙂

    Still in shock of the gionee e8 price 🙁
    Iocean expected around $300-$350?

    Umi chipset unknown? i am surprised now an unannounced mtk chip, maybe a boosted octacore mt6752 like the turbo on the umi zero?
    I really hope they do well here and for once make that flawless phone. There ideas for phones are great but the outcome never is on par with the expectation.

      I think they are saying it is announced by Umi which SoC they are using not that it’s a secret MTK chip.

      so true…
      frame this and gift it to to some companies’ ceos …

    The mystery input method is going to be Big Toe mode! Finally you can operate a phone with your Big Toe without opening the wrong app.

    I want a Helio P10 phone! This will be the chip that kills in the mid-range sector. Great CPU performance, and good GPU performance at low costs.

    To2C already listed it with photos: http://www.to2c.com/umi-iron.html
    Not sure how correct are the specs and I also want to see the black version if there’s one.

      Damnn those black borders again,

      • Ivan
        June 11, 2015

        Yeah, that’s why I would like to see if there’s a black variant. IT would look better imo and the black borders will blend. Don’t know why all brands that recently went that route offer a white models only. I can’t stand that design when screen is on :(. The best implementation of this design so far is from LeTV – borders don’t look so bad on that one, while the most awful is from Elephone – the borders on top/bottom and on the sides are not even the same width…

    Geekbuying has listed the phone for 169.99 with a 5.5 inch screen

      nice…

    With that extra RAM and HD screen they better up the battery size. I think 2800mah is low for a phone with these power hungry specs.
