Ulefone Vienna will get more RAM and different CPU than originally thought


ulefone vienna

At MWC, Ulefone released that the audio-centric Ulefone Vienna would ship with 2GB RAM and MT6753A chipset, but the company have decided to up the RAM and up spec the CPU slightly.

For 2016 Ulefone are heading down the audio-centric route with an aim to join the likes of Vivo, and Meizu with a smartphone that packs dedicated audio amps and processors. Originally Ulefone planned to concentrate on audio only with an NX Smart Pa chipset and DAC support and spec only 2GB RAM and a lower clock speed CPU.

Those plans have changed for the better though with the audio hardware remaining in place but RAM being upgraded from 2GB RAM to 3GB and the MT6753A chipset being changed to the standard 8 core MT6753 with faster processing speed. The phone will also get 32GB memory as standard.

Along with the slight changes in specifications, Ulefone have also released more detailed images of the Vienna which show rather large icons for the hardware buttons located on the chin, a fingerprint scanner on the rear and a design similar to the previously released Ulefone Paris.

We’re not sure what the build or pricing is going to be like for the Vienna, but we are certainly interested to learn what the phone sounds like once launched.

    If it is under $150 it could be a very good budget option. I like the simple yet stated design, not too crazy about the huge hardware buttons but I could live with them.

      But Ulephone? Haven’t I read you questioning their quality? Would you really consider buying one?

        That is Elephone you are thinking of. I have no feelings towards Ulefone either way. I buy a lot of phones every year so I would consider buying one to try it out especially a dedicated audio phone.

          I also like the idea of a audio-centric phone. The MTK6753 and 3Gb of ram will be more than enough for the tasks I tend to do. Its all dependent on price. I am forever listening to music on my phone. I would actually like to see Andi put together a top 10 for audio quality from the phones he has seen so far. I know he is also a music fan. They have have to split it for earphone and speaker output though.

            Good ideas, all human cognition, will eventually be in the mind in the form of sound performance, China’s VIVO is a dedicated music phone, who’s very good quality, but the higher price, the same configuration.

    Yeah, an audio-centric phone with a rear speaker.
    Next, a camera-phone with a vga camera resolution.

      Audio centric phones are mostly used with high-end headphones. I think it is the audio processor in combination with a good headphone out that matters here.

    If I scan my Paris with anti-malwarebytes it found a trojan and I can’t delete it….also my anti virus (eset) gives me a warning for a virus… I can give you more info but I wanna know if there other users with the same problem as I allready found some same problems of users in XDA forums. allready contact ulefone blog but no ears!!

      I have this problem on my Paris. Without rooting it seems not possible to remove. As I’m not attempting (or brave enough) to root I choose to install NoRoot Firewall and I block many services I do not use. I do not know if this allows containment as I simply do not have sufficient knowledge.

        thanks for reply Patrick but I also wrote ulefone about this but no reaction.
        OR…….did they do it with purpose?
        I think this storry has a nasty smell. I would recommend this to everybody install anti malware and scan your phone….share your results but i’m curious especially about the ulefone Paris

      At least in the sale of mobile phones, 95% of its CPU are not strong, I use the MT6795, MT6753 does not feel it is much faster than, in addition to soc, we have to focus on other configurations, at least ulefone Vienna is a balanced configuration to meet the large most people now demand that the future will not lag behind.
