Ulefone kick of the first sales of the Ulefone Be Touch 2 with a special introduction price of just $179.99.
While it might come as a bit of a surprise that Ulefone have release an updates 2nd generation Be Touch, it in fact really shouldn’t. If you cast your mind back to early leaks of the original Be Touch there was some confusion over the resolution of the display, which was later cleared up with Ulefone stating that they would more than likely release a 2nd phone with FHD panel to compliment the first HD release, and here it is in the form of the Ulefone Be Touch 2.
Design-wise the Ulefone Be Touch 2 flaunts the same magnesium alloy frame as the Be Touch along with a 2.5D glass display with oleophobic coating to make it less vulnerable to fingerprints and spears. The body hasn’t been unchanged though. The rear panel will is still removable and will be offered in bright colours plus a denim and silk covered option.
Upfront the Be Touch 2 will also retain the same fingerprint scanner built in the home button. This is a pretty neat feature and means no more double tap then unlock or power button then swipe and password to unlock. Once set up all it requires is a single press of the finger and the scanner will check your fingerprint and decide to open up.
As already mentioned the Be Touch 2 has a FHD 1920 x 1080 resolution display rather than a HD panel, and will also have the battery updates to a 3050mAh solid-state polymer option for longer running time. Other detsils include a newer MT6752 chipset running a 1.3Ghz (the same as the M2 note), 3GB RAM, 16GB storage, SD card support, Android 5.1 and Sony IMX214 main camera.
Even with the updated screen and larger battery, Ulefone will be selling the Be Touch 2 for a limited time at just $179.99. How long the offer will last and what the final pricing will be remains to be seen.
