Ulefone Paris looks like the love child of Meizu and Apple


Meizu has been up to some weird stuff lately, and this includes launching phones sooner than expected. One thing that you do have to give to Meizu is that they know how to make good looking phones… despite the odd similarity with the iPhone sometimes.

Ulefone, on the other hand, have been chipping away at the market share of ‘export brand’ Chinese makers such as Elephone, Mlais, etc lately. Ulefone announced a new device interestingly titled ‘Paris’ some days back, and a couple images of the phone have made their way to us now.

Very clearly, the Ulefone Paris looks like the love child of Meizu and Apple. Throw in a Meizu MX4, an iPhone 6 and add a little Be Touch (to taste), and you have what is the new Ulefone Paris!

Take a look at the images of the phone, and tell us what you think. Needless to say, the Paris will come with a 2.5D curved glass on top, while the rest of the internals of the phone aren’t yet confirmed. The physical home button of the Be Touch is now replaced by what looks like a glowing halo, while the back and menu capacitive keys remain.

Ulefone recently launched the Be Touch 2, which came right after the Be Touch.

    Mt6753 ?? Is there a two for one deal on them from mediatek or is there a problem with mt6752 chip?

      They have been pushing their newer SoC (MT6735 and MT6753) that still performs better than Qualcomm options and they are more power efficient (due to a lower clock) with the addition of more LTE bands support (it’s on manufacturers of they don’t provide the antenna for a specific band).

      It’s clear that Mediatek priority has moved from raw power (MT6595, MT6732,MT6752)
      to something more balanced (MT6735, MT6753, MT6795) and there’s nothing wrong with it considering that battery life is the bottleneck of this industry.

    i’m all for the 6753 as it supposedly is a “global” phone. if it is confirmed to get 4g in the US, I think i’ll buy this one. or the umi iron

      Most likely it won’t get US LTE. The Global or World Mode just means the 6753 (and the SD 410) has support for multiple networks including CDMA2000 which has very little support with other chips. But most Global phones operate on some combination of bands 1, 3, 7, 20, 28, 38 and 40. Those are considered the “Global” LTE bands as they are used in so many countries.

      The problem for the US is they use bands that are virtually unused outside of North America. A lot of the smaller brands don’t have strong enough sales in the US to justify adding those bands and also either can’t get or afford FCC licensing to operate on those bands. Unless a phone has strong sales or an official presence in the US don’t expect US LTE.

    According to XDADevelopers, the Ulefone Paris will include a 5-inch HD display, and MTK6753 chipset. It is a mini Ulefone Be Touch 2 just with the iPhone-6-particular push home button changed into a touch button as also seen on the Meizu MX4 and M1 Note. The circular button will also have light as on the Meizu phones when it is touched. And there will actually be capacitive menu and back buttons with light, left and right to the home key but they are invisible when not used. The Ulefone Paris also inherited the 2.5D glass and metal frame from Ulefone Be Touch and Be Touch 2. And the general design is not very different, just smaller, and maybe thinner.

    Although it looks like the iPhone, but I like the design,

    Ulefone paris, I think there should be a romantic design elements, so I think it is not have a lot of special colors. Even some elements of paris.

    Haha seems Ulefone Paris is developing their own design language, though it is not obvious now. From Ulefone Be Touch 2 to Ulefone Paris, they kept something and changed some, and more beatiful i think.

    If ulefone paris with front touch buttons, I would think it is iPhone6, it would be very stick, but the price is 129.99, and this too Madden up.

    A good device, and looks handy. 5-inch is for my hand.

    The stuff packs MTK6753 Soc, 720P display, 2GB RAM, quite balanced as ulefone has advertised. Hope it will bring fantastic experience.

    From the past year, Chinese brands have been crazy on the 5.5-inch size and 1080P display. i don’t know why. 5.5-inch is to big for one hand, and 1080p, i think no budget MTK chipest can control it good. It’s good to see Ulefone come back from madness and perhaps they have focused on user experience.

    answer. You can’t said this is top specs flagship, but i like it. Beautiful, Lite, Good specs, good price.

    How many of these comments are fake made by the manufacturer to big their phone up?

    I ask this because i see about 10 comments by many different people all within an hour of each other and all enthusing about this phone. Then i see no more comments until 17 hours later when i write this. You Chinese phone makers must think we are stupid or something.

    I would not buy this phone because of this behaviour and other deceitful behaviour by Ulefone in the past such as not showing the large black screen borders in their photos.

    Learn to respect the customer otherwise you will stay far behind Xiaomi and others.
