UHANS S1 – stylish new arrival with Freeme OS and MT6753


Chinese manufacturer UHANS is not an unknown player on the market since their release of two phone models during last year. First one of them, UHANS U100, pretty strongly resembled the extremely pricy luxury british Vertu phones with its design and the next installment of the “U” model line, UHANS U200, looked like a crossover between the aforementioned Vertu and Doogee D700 Titans 2.

According to latest news UHANS plans to come this year with a new model line “S” (stylish and sleeky) and first one to the party should be UHANS S1, which is expected to hit the market in April. The company chose to pin the slogan “Beauty outside and monster inside” on it so lets see if the new UHANS S1 will be worthy of such words.

So lets summarize briefly what we know about the model so far. Display should be 5″, covered by 2.5D curved glass, sporting only 1.3mm slim bezels and with so far unknown resolution. Internal specs include octacore processor MT6753 paired with 3 GB RAM and the company specifically emphasized the aim to be the most affordable MT6753 device on the market. Other features revealed so far are 13 Mpix + 5 Mpix set of cameras, multifunctional fingerprint reader and very thin metal body measuring at its thickest point 6.8mm (4.9mm at the thinnest).

As the system will serve the chinese Freeme OS 6.0 (based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow).

Pricing of the UHANS S1 hasnt been revealed yet, but its expected to be extremely competitive.

      this is a 53 not a 35 — I think the 35s are extremely popular. But I also feel like neither of them are appropriate for much more than $120 phones.

      to me a price curve that kinda makes sense is:

      32-bit cpus — <$80
      ~40k antutu v6 — <$120
      ~60k antutu v6 — <$200
      ~90k — $250
      120k+ — $350+

      Realizing that right now you can get a Nexus 5X (with US 4G bands at that) for $200, running an 808, and a Samsung Galaxy S6 brand new for ~$400, this gives plenty of room for profit in the mid range while still staying roughly linear with such landmarks.

        im guessing those are the prices you think the phones should cost right? well its business they hike up the price when its new then they drop to close to the values you stated im not too sure what the antutu scores are suppose to mean, i sure hope no oem ever uses antutu scores to sell phones or use as some form of measurement of pricing i would kill myself 🙂

          those are prices that I think are fair. Some things cost more than they should sure, but not everything does. I named some examples in that post, about major phones still available at different (all of them competitive) prices.. its for that reason that I think these numbers are good rules of thumb.

      That would put a 6735-based phone at maybe $100, and a 6753 at not much over $120.

I named some examples in that post, about major phones still available at different (all of them competitive) prices.. its for that reason that I think these numbers are good rules of thumb.

      Here’s some (mostly recent) examples of off-brands that match that price curve:
      — Cubot Note S, $80 (6580, 5.5″ 720p, 1GB)
      — Qihoo 360 F4 $92 (6735, 5″ 720p 2GB)
      — Doggee F5 $140 (6753, 5.5″ 1080p 3GB) slightly high price but nice ram and screen at price point
      — LeEco Le 1 S $160 (6795, 5.5″ 1080p 3GB) one of the best deals around, period
      — xiaomi redmi note 3 pro $209 (Snapdragon 650, 5.5″ 1080p 2GB)
      — xiaomi mi5 $360 (1.95Ghz Snapdragon 820, 5.15″ 1080p 3GB) one of the best deals around
