UMi Zero 2 update 4/9: Will have a (faux?) leather rear

UMi is back with another one of its updates for the upcoming Zero 2 smartphone, and this one’s something that style lovers might fall for.

The picture that UMi tease — reading ‘fashion is keeping up with technology’ — shows a rather stylish leather/faux leather rear for the Zero 2. The Zero 2 is thus far confirmed to have a dual screen design with a 5.2-inch front screen (with 2.5D curved glass on top), an e-ink screen on the back and a 20 mega-pixel camera.

This new update that gives the phone the leather back should make it not only nicer to look at, but also gripper and perhaps more comfortable to hold.

Previous photos have shown a ‘regular’ plastic rear for the phone, so it is likely that this leather option will be optional. I’m also pretty sure no other dual screen phone offers a leather rare, so this combination should be pretty interesting to look out for.

The first generation UMi Zero came with a Super AMOLED screen which was one of the selling points of the phone, and there should be no reason for UMi to let go of the display technology for the next installment.

This was the 4th out of the 9 teasers that UMi are going to put out for the Zero 2, so watch this space for the next 5!
