Exclusive: First look at Ulefone’s 2K Helio P10 flagship

Ulefone news continues today with the revelation of an all new unibody alloy Ulefone device boasting 2K display, and Helio P10 chipset.

Every Chinese phone maker is getting ready to end the year with a new flagship smartphone featuring one of the latest Mediatek chipsets. Ulefone are no different and are making use of what they learned from metal bodied devices this year, plus a Helio P10 chip to create their first unibody flagship.

Ulefone sent over these images claiming that they show partial shots of 2 Ulefone prototypes, however it appears that one of the phones is actually a Huawei device and the other model is a Ulefone mock-up.

The Ulefone model features antenna lines on the rear similar to the iPhone 6S, and lacks a USB between the dual speakers on the base. The design is meant to offer a huge screen to body ratio meaning that onscreen navigation will be in place rather than hardware buttons. Being a unibody design the Ulefone should be thin, but it will mean a non removable battery so let’s hope there will be a big one built-in.

Hardware is all top of the line too, with Ulefone confirming a 5.5-inch 2K 2560 x 1440 display, a rear fingerprint scanner and a powerful Mediatek MT6755 Helio P10 chipset. Looking at the competition we suspect Ulefone will use at least 4GB RAM and 32GB memory as standard in this device.

From what we can see this new Ulefone is attractive, and with those features we can expect great performance too, but this all depends on how well optimised the device will be once launched. What do you make of the 2K Ulefone? Is this a phone you are excited to finally see?

    alright, they might be copycat, whatever.
    Ulefone is making really good looking phones lately and they are using good hardware as well.

    I’m really curious about this new flagship.

        what they have to do is put stock Android, release the kernel source code and let the community work on it.
        cheap and effective.

          Never understand why more of these newer companies don’t do this. Instead release with half baked ROMs with no real support.

            probably because they want to keep their spywares hidden 😀

            They just want people to buy a new phone every year instead of updating their old phone to a new Android version.

          Which I don’t think it’s too hard

            well, there’s a reason actually.
            most of these companies don’t care much of int’l customers.

            they sell mainly in China where Google services are banned and they have to replace them with the Chinese version, including a bunch of bloatware.

            they can still keep the bootloader unlocked, release the kernel so people can compile their ROM easily.

    stop with the 2k screens!! It’s a total waste of battery!!!

      Under 6″ I would agree but bigger screens definitely benefit.

      • Yeti hand
        October 8, 2015

        Yeah I can’t stand those 5’5 with 2k resolution! And since they want to keep it slim watch them put a 3000- 3500 mah battery inside which is the insurance of having poor battery performance

      I think we need this 2K resolution to handle apps for VR-Cardbox in near future, don’t we?!

    Interesting as MT says it supports upto 1080p resolutions and since its gpu is weaker than the helio x10 I wouldn’t touch a phone with this combination. Shame as it does look really nice.

      Its GPU is better than the X10 the Cpu is weaker tho

      • Rob
        October 9, 2015

        Actually your wrong, both the cpu and gpu are weaker in the P10. Since the gpu is only 20% faster than the MT6752 (approx 48GFLOPS), this would give it around 57GFLOPS, which in turn is much lower than the G6200 in the Helio X10 (90GFLOPS). This is the reason it can’t push a 2k screen and the X10 can (just). The cpu is also clocked slower than the X10 and it also has a slower memory controller (2x 32-bit @ 800+MHzLPDDR3 v 2x 32-bit @ 933MHz LPDDR3). The only thing this has which is better is the modem Cat. 6 v Cat. 4).

    They should make it 5 inch or 5.2 then above 3060 mAh Battery

    If the can use miui or CM rom that will be fantastic.

    They should just make something like Zuk Z1 or better.

    The P10 is aimed at 1080p so 1440p is pushing it.

    I don’t think this is real. MT6755 is a midrange SOC, I don’t think they will put it with 1440p screen and 4GB RAM.

    P10 and 2K display is a terrible combo. The only MTK chip that can push 2K is MT6795 and even that works better with 1080p (for gaming and other intense 3D)

    Ulefone has developed herself a name of a bad company. It promises much, it offers little.
    At the time when meizu and xiaomi are pushing into mid-range phone area offering competitive prices and often updates companies like ulefone have to try hard (and i mean really hard) to take some part of the sales pie.
    Anyway nothing has been unouced yet but 2k and p10 cpu? No, thanks… Ulefone? No, thanks.
    As said Ulefone must first prove to offer what it promises and also to start building roms that aren’t as bad as the one she has on the current phones. Along with that she must be capable of offering (at least some) updates.
