Full specifications for the brand new UMi Iron smartphone. Keep reading for details of this all alloy flagship phone.
Today UMi announce the full details of the UMi Iron smartphone along with competitions to buy the new flagship for just a fraction of the retail price.
For those of you not keeping count, the Iron is the 4th UMi phone of the year and only the 2nd 5.5-inch phone from the company in 2015. The UMi Iron is designed to sit above the current UMi eMax, and boasts a more feature packed specification profile.
The Iron has an all alloy body measuring 152.3 x 76.5 x 7.9mm, quite a compact design but large enough to house a 3180mAh battery which is apparently good for a standby time of up to 12 days.
A silver grey alloy rear cover sports the UMi Iron logo, and Sony IMX214 13 mega-pixel main camera and dual LED flash. We have had really great experience with the IMX214, and hope the camera on the Iron performs just as well as other phones with the same camera.
Gizchina News of the week
The front camera is an 8 mega-pixel OV8858 camera which also gets the benefit of a front LED flash. This isn’t a very common feature, but it is a feature we really like to see and makes the front camera a whole lot more useable in a wider range of environments.
A 5.5-inch FHD 1920 x 1080 display with a pixel density of 441ppi takes up the majority of the front of the phone. On screen navigation buttons are again a feature we like (but are not to everyones taste), and the use of a pulse LED notification light (similar to that found on the Oppo Find 7 and N3) is another really nice touch.
Android 5.1 Lollipop runs on 3GB RAM and an octacore Mediatek
MT6735 MT6753 chipset running at 1.3Ghz with FDD support for 1800/2100/2600mhz.
