UMI Touch gold version presale starts 12th April


Umi touch

Golden versions of the mobile phones are always very popular among the chinese producers and UMI is no exception to the rule. So their new upcoming model UMI Touch will be available in gold starting presale on 12th April according to their website listing.

Keep in mind this is the usual old school “gold” and not the fancy “rose gold” variant, which keeps spawning left and right recently across the phone brands 🙂

Quick recap for those forgetful about UMI Touch, 5.5-inch FHD display, octa core MT6753 processor, 3 GB RAM, 13 Mpix Sony IMX328 camera, 4000 mAh battery, metal unibody, fast fingerprint scanner and Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Whats not to like there 🙂

          i have a umi touch, the sensor is real, but camera app is current not good. Its very laggy on lowlight and bad video performance.

          Umi says he working on this problem.

              I think an incomplete programmed camera app and not optimized cam driver.

              Yes, but UMI will release new Update in next days. Fingerprint working after a few setups really good.

              About battery life, I can not say it, i use it current without sim as second device and wlan only.

            Didn’t I read that the latest OTA update optimizes the fingerprint scanner and camera? Is this sample before or after the update?

            And how did you get your hands on the phone? Adam Irvine and I are still waiting for it to be shipped.

    I’m curious, who actually buys the ‘pretentious’ gold versions of phones?

      Probably BRIC+African nations, minus Russia. The strange thing is there are a horde of phones that time forgo to be able to sell into these states at a cheap price. Like so many unsold phones with much better support due to time and community works.

    Compare to the UMI touch, Oukitel K6000 Pro with 6000mAh battery, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM and IP64 waterproof is only $149.99, at gearbest. What do you think?
