This week           on  GizChina

UMi Fair specifications 

UMi being the revamped UMi, has started to make a lot more noise than it did ever before. The company announced specifications of what they think is the world’s cheapest fingerprint sensor phone, i.e., the UMi Fair. UMi also think that the Fair will slay the Xiaomi Redmi at $99!

Ulefone Paris pre-sales start

Ulefone’s Paris is an aptly named beautiful smartphone with a decent set of specifications under its hood. But unlike other phones with similar specifications, the Paris costs only $130 if you pre-order now!

IUNI’s N1 goes official

IUNI started a new line of phones earlier this week, with the IUNI N1 being the first of the lot. The N1 has a rather beautiful body and is a mere 6.3mm in thickness!

Xiaomi’s now making luggage. Really.

I bet you didn’t see this coming. Xiaomi have actually announced a suitcase, but (meh) it isn’t smart, doesn’t connect to your smartphone and certainly doesn’t have integrated maps.

Mlais tease their smartwatch

Smartphones from China have reached a totally new level of awesomeness this year. Its high time that smartwatches follow; Mlais is trying to do that (but are they trying to imitate Elephone?) with a rather beautiful smartwatch which the company has recently been teasing.

Happy weekend!
