Ulefone Vienna full specs announced with a few surprises


ulefone vienna hifi phone

Ulefone have revealed the final hardware parameters for their audio-centric Ulefone Vienna phone read them all here.

Rather than simply adding more RAM or a larger battery, Ulefone have added audio centric features to their new Vienna device.

Previously known as the Ulefone Alpha, the 153.5 x 77.85 x 8.6mm phone will come in 4 colours (grey, white, black and pink) and weighs in at 156g.

The real selling point of the Vienna is the audio centric features. According to Ulefone the phone has a NXP Smart Audio PA independent HIFI chipset with operation amplifier. The responsive frequency ranges from 20z to 20khz, and 109db high SNR.

Moving on from the audio features, Ulefone have chosen to take a step away from Sony and Omnivision  and instead are using a 13 mega-pixel Panasonic MN34172 rear camera with dual LED flash. Sony are still providing the 3250mAh Li Polymer battery however.

On a performance note, Ulefone have opted for the tried and trusted 8-core MT6753 chipset with 3GB LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB internal memory.

Extra features include an IR remote located in the top of the phone, and a rear finger print scanner that incorporates a physical button. The idea of the button is to use for taking photos and audio recordings.

Lastly there will be micro SD card memory expansion, 2.5D glass front panel and 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display.

Ulefone say that the Vienna will bring high-quality audio at a lower price, but what that price might be remains a mystery.

    If, and just IF, it is great audio quality and the other features are good then a $ 150 price range is the one to aim at. As at 200 you might not get the same audio feats but a better choice phone.

    HI, does some staff see this? Here is an article from the Ulefone blog. They compare the Future with the Samsung S7 edge. (maybe write an article).

    And they say that they can’t release the device immediately but we don’t have to wait too long.
    It seems to me that there is some kind of NDA on those Helio P10 devices and most will come to market in April.

      I dont think theres an NDA. Ulefone future simply is not ready yet.

        I was referring to the fact, that a lot of Helio P10 Smartphones are announced to be released in April. It seams Mediatek has told the smartphone makers to not release a smartphone with P10 before April

    I am an owner of a Be Touch 2 which to me is a pretty good all round phone. Now that they have moved the finger print scanner to the back 🙁 I don’t get why that chin has to be so big. Wish they had kept the scanner on the front. This would probably have been my next phone…

    Why do Ulefone like using only this chipset MT6753?

      Ulefone Future is supposed to have Helio P10

      No other SoC that they can make a profit on for Under 199$, as MTK is giving them pretty cheap and they are not bad performers.

    Loving the rose gold version. I wonder if this is a metal phone or if it has metal frame and plastic back. Going to be interesting to see how the panasonic sensor performs.

    And the surprise is that it will suck like every other Ulephone phone out there.
    All promise and close to zero fufillment

    Cool… question is will it stand any chances agains LGs, Meizus, Vivos and Lenovos with their ESS Sabre chips…

      No way. ESS Sabre are the best DACs but they need the support of a discrete high end headphone amplifier like TI OPA1612 to provide the juice required driving audiophile headphones to high volumes. This gives fuller & rich sound. Globally the best two implementation of these chips can be found in flagship Lenovo Vibe X3 & Vivo X5Max. Saying that Vienna is not a flagship and hence not a direct competitor of these models. I like the idea of Ulefone to provide good sound quality for the masses. A price of US $150 will be spot on.

      You have forgotten Oukitel, I think. Its k6000 pro with 6000mAh battery, same MTK6753 octa-core chip, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM, Android 6.0 and IP64 functions. It also with low price, $143.99 at gearbest now.
