Here is the UMi Iron! First official photos


umi iron

UMi kick off the weekend with some official photos of the all new UMi Iron. Keep reading for the first official UMi Iron photos.

Just a week to go until the official launch, and after numerous teasers we have managed to obtain official leaked images of the UMi Iron.

Over the past month UMi have been releasing detail after detail for the UMi Iron and have gained quite a lot of excitement around the phone launch which will take place on June 23rd.

UMi’s carefully crafted teasers have revealed much (but not all) of the specifications of the UMi Iron. What we know for sure is the phone will feature a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 LTPS display, 3350mAh battery, 8 mega-pixel front camera and rear 13 mega-pixel Sony IMX214, HiFi audio using Texas Instruments audio chips, 3GB RAM and Android 5.1. The UMi Iron will also have a full metal body measuring just 7.9mm thick.

We’re still waiting to learn which processor UMi have opted for, details on the LTE network compatibility and a few other things, but while we wait for those details we can browse the first official images of the phone which reveal a few more tidbits.

These pre-release images of the UMi Iron show us what the metal body of the new phone will look like, and as you can see it isn’t different from an original leak a few weeks back. Wha t the images do reveal though are onscreen buttons, a LED notification beam similar to the Skylight system on Oppo phones and a very narrow bezel design.

The images also show a while and a black version of the phone, and that the packaging for the device will include an EU standard charge, OTG cable and USB cable.

All told this has got to be one of the most exciting UMi launches we have seen all year, and we cannot wait to see what surprises are in store for the 23rd when the UMi Iron is officially revealed.

    i dont if these are official photo’s. These pictures were on to2c a week ago, and i dont know if these are official. Because they reply on a question with: “Because the pictures are Prototype phone . So we can’t sure the buttons information .” If these are real, shame on UMI, no captive but onscreen buttons. grrr

      UMi sent us the photos this morning.

        Oooh, allright then ! Well, maybe i hoped these weren’t the official pictures because of the on screen buttons. How is your expierece with these kind of on-screen buttons?

          if they are used (and loved) on nexus phone, should be no problem everything else!

    bye bye Umi ! On screen buttons, awefull =( Oukitel U9 is now my top of mind phone !

    and they will have that black border around the screen again! Hopefully not. Wtf is the obsession Chinese phone manufacturers with such thing?!

    • balcobomber25

      To try to make the bezels look even smaller than they actually are.

      • eliHd
        June 19, 2015

        but it doesn’t tho lol IMO it makes the bezels look bigger when the screen is on and the back ground is not dark.

    I rather have on screen buttons if this results in a smaller phone. Why cry about these buttons, use it a week and you will never want something else.

    • Ivan
      June 19, 2015

      But it doesn’t. Size is comparable to other 5.5″ on the market. It will also have the same black borders around the screen. I really hoped it has capacitive buttons, but the on-screen ones are a big “NO” to me, sadly. There’s enough space on the “chin” of the phone for capacitive buttons…

      • dbreegh
        June 19, 2015

        Thats what i thought ! And i also hoped for their flagship they added a fingerscanner, but unfortenately it doesnt have one.
        Thats why i hope the Oukitel U9 had a fingerscanner en real capacitive buttons, then its probably my favorite phone (because their price is always very competitive).

        • Byaaa
          June 19, 2015

          Oukitel U9 will not have Fingerprintscanner. Take the Ulefone Be Touch 2 instead.

          • dbreegh
            June 19, 2015

            Hmmm, big bummer. BUT it got capacitive buttons which is a big plus. Ulefone Be Touch 2, never ! haha look at them bezels. Way To Big

    In the list of crappy Chinese Manufacturers, UMI sits at the bottom. No thanks.

    • WOOHer
      June 19, 2015

      Why? I’ve never have UMI before, but this one I liked so much and thinking to buy it. What wrong with UMI smarts?

        I know they lied about B20 on the eMax ;/ The shipped versions didn’t have it.

    which processor is in this phone?

  11. Thang Cheong Pin

    On screen button is fine for me. Most important is the system won’t give me major problem and run smoothly. If camera can produce good pics, it’ll be a big plus. The design looks acceptable especially the black/grey color.

    Did he have MTK6795?

    You left out the best pictures with them nice big black borders.
    To2c already listed the umi’s price for $169,-

    • WOOHer
      June 19, 2015

      Impossible price, imho

      • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz
        June 23, 2015

        Why? You want the ridiculous $200-220 unreal price of the P8000 which has the same cpu? It’s a rival to M2 Note in this price segment.

        • WOOHer
          June 24, 2015

          Such a price seems to be too low for such a good looking device. Guess it has some disadvantages…

          • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz
            July 5, 2015

            I still think that’s the real price for these specs. UMI made a really great desicion choosing the price the Iron below P8000. No real disadvantages, see the teardown on YT by s7yler, the battery seems to be real 3000 instead of 3150mah

      I just wanted to write the same thing 🙂 It has Mtk6753 and it’s priced at 169.99$. Kinda’ far away from the initial expectations…

    Damn you umi! Just ordered the hammer but now I want this one! Looks cool although I see some thc stuff in there. But that’s not really a bad thing right?

    Any info about the bezels? Or where and how much speaker’s are in there?

  15. June 19, 2015

    Whatever you do please stay away from GEARBEST SCAMMERS.

    The biggest bunch of Chinese robbers in the INTERNET.

    Had to claim my money to my Bank, stupid me to ignore the comments about them and succumb to the low price

    • jimberkas
      June 20, 2015

      i’ve bought about a dozen things from gearbest, though all were less than $30. i’ve never had a problem, but shipping is slow

      What exactly was the problem?

      • Steve B
        June 21, 2015

        Ignore them, they’re spamming everywhere, then accusing people of being “scamming boosters”.

        • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz
          June 23, 2015

          I think this guy is really having a problem, as I saw him on YouTube too.

            Funny thing is, he is a seller on Spanish Ebay and only has 85.7% positive feedback, so by his own definition that would make him a SCAMMING… He also insults those leaving negative feedback. Total fruit loop.

    BLACK ONE IS LOOKING MORE GORGIOUS BUT DUALTONE FLASH IS MISSING. DOES IT SUPPORT DUAL SIM 4G FDD & TD LTE SDCARD SLOT WITH REMOVABLE BATTERY & FINGERPRINT SENSOR…….

    I need to be more wary of these pics man…..always has that black background to hide those ugly bezels that border the phone.

      not only that – but they fall out too. the only downside so far on this phone I’ve found.

    Another ugly border phone. I bet everyone is missing those bigger bezels they all complained about now that we have this.

    No Touch ID? Unacceptable! MTK6753 to drive FHD display? Just buy and be tortured! Seems Ulefone Be Touch 2 is the only stuff with a conscience presently.
