Exclusive: Pre-launch photos of the Ulefone Paris


ulefone Paris

Today we have received the first real photos of the Ulefone Paris ahead of the official launch next week.

After the release of their 5.5-inch flagship Be Touch and Be Touch 2 phones, Ulefone have decided to concentrate on a smaller 5-inch model for their next device. 5-inch mobiles are becoming increasingly rare these days despite a large portion of the smartphone community still wanting a more compact device.

The 5-inch Ulefone Paris adopts a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective glass front panel with clear plastic back plate to give a glossy finish. The main structure of the phone is a magnesium alloy chassis giving the Paris a thickness of just 8mm and overall weight of only 128g.

Ulefone say the Paris will ship with Android 5.1 installed as standard and that we will see Ulefone’s custom U-Launcher in action for the first time.

Hardware specifications include the aforementioned 5-inch HD display, 64bit MT6753 processor, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and 2250mAh battery. Pricing is unknown at this time but more details can be found on the official Ulefone Paris specification page here.

    when i saw the picture i thought:
    “hey, what a gorgeous phone.Let me read the article to find out what’s inside this beauty”

    …and then disappointment!
    Another mediocre phone to add to the giant list of those phones with the same exact specs.

    It reminds me few years ago when the market was flooded by those thousands of MT6582 phones with the same hardware.

      You said it all, I totally share the same opinion.

        And only 2250 mAh battery. I have the U’Touch 2 and it has a 3050 mAh which barely or just makes it through the day. I don’t think that Ulefone will have the battery drain fixed that good to place a smaller battery.

          Utouch 2 battery probably is fake, it has the exactly same size and thickness of the Utouch 1 2500mAh battery.

            add the detail, that 5″ vs 5.5″ is better and mt6573 is slower by 0.4ghz than mt6752 and in total it should be less power hungry.

            The same volume, the capacity of the polymer battery is greater than that of the lithium battery.Need to unload some security software, they are very power consumption.It’s very good for me when I’m not installing the program. After a lot of procedures, I can not emotional those procedures in power.

      MT6753 is a good SOC.Running HD screen, more smoothly than FHD.Will also save electricity.5 inch is the right size. For most people.When all the manufacturers have to make the phone more and more time.It is a wise choice to make a 5 inch mobile phone.

    Because the world absolutely needs another iphone clone with generic specs.

    Guess the Ulefone 2 didn’t get quite close enough to the design of the iPhone so they had to go and make the Paris. Doogee might not be the greatest company, but they sure as hell weren’t wrong to call out manufacturers for lifting the iPhone 6 design.

      Whether it is not plagiarism, I like this design.Now a lot of mobile phones are using 2.5D screen.While iPhone is not the first to use the 2.5D screen, so, ulefone Paris and iPhone only border are round.

    I saw the price in 169.99 dollars is coolicool.I think the price will be higher, if it is 150 dollars, it will be much better.

    No black boarders on the images on their product page. I wonder how thick the actual borders really are …

    never buy from ulefone ever again, only lie about the specs and dont support their phones enough with SW updates

    Like the appearance. The specs, though not high, match each other quite well. MTK6753 theoretically is no problem with 720P display. If the OS is well optimized, you can even play demanding games smoothly.

    LOL next nice brick with no decent battery…. when will they learn???

    5 inch is a good size and the phone looks not very thick. I guess it’ll be quite comfortable in hand. The specs are nice if not stunning.

    MTK6753 is good enough to control 720P display as long as the OS is efficient, perhaps better than MTK6752 for 1080P display. Well, Ulefone Paris seems to be the first and only MTK6753 mobile phone with a HD display, and it will be a speciman. If it proves to be visibly faster than MTK6753 or 6752 plus full HD, more budget phones may have this combination, because it will provide better experiences. I myself is tired of specs tricks. By the way, the ulefone Paris looks good, so do the so-called U-launcher.

    Like it very much. Now it’s very hard to find a 5-inch phone with sound specs and low price. The specs of Ulefone Paris seems sounds balanced as it slogan says. 720P is enough for 5-inch display i think, though may not be stunning.

    Good day, when finally there is some factory to realize that MTK6753, if work with a lower resolution display, will provide better-than-ever user experiences. I’d rather buy a smooth phone than one with good visual effect but luggish.
