The team over at UMi have prematurely posted the final specifications of the UMi Super over on the WeChat account and we’ve snapped the images up to check what the final details and fuss is all about.
Like Xiaomi with the Xiaomi Mi5, and Vivo with the Vivo X3, UMi are going down the ‘this phone is fast’ route for their marketing plan and before today the rumour was that the UMi Super might get a Snapdragon 820 chipset (but we all knew deep down that this wasn’t going to be the case).
While UMi haven’t officially released the final details of the UMi Super on their website yet, high level UMi employees have spilt the beans on their WeChat accounts, with the posting of images that look set to make up the official UMi Super specifications pages.
The images don’t go in to the nitty-gritty detail of the new phone, but do give us the major selling points of the phone. So will the UMi Super be super fast? Check out the specs below and decide for yourself.
UMi Super Specifications
- 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 Sharp display.
- 2.0Ghz Mediatek Helio P10 chipset.
- 4GB Samsung LPDDR3 RAM.
- 4000mAh Sony battery.
- Mircoarray fingerprint scanner.
- 13 mega-pixel Panasonic rear camera.
- 5 mega-pixel front camera.
- Unibody Alloy chassis.
- Dual SIM support
- Android 6.0.
Going through the leaked slides we can see that the UMi Super will also get a USB Type C plug, come in either silver or gold finishes and has the a Meizu look to it which follows on from the recently released UMi Touch smartphone.
Gizchina News of the week
We don’t know at this stage when the UMi Super will go on sale or how much it is going to cost when released. We also have no idea how long it will take for the phone to make it to market, it could be here next week or on the other hand it might take an age to ship (like the Umi Touch, and Umi Rome).
What do you make of these specs? Let us know in the comments section below.
Wasn’t it supposed to be OLED? Sharp doesn’t do OLED so maybe these are fakes.
They are from the CEO’s WeChat. Perhaps they will change, but these sounds more realistic
Andi … you don’t know how relieved i am by the “Perhaps they’ll change” phrase…
but its a terribly long shot !
no man … they’re LYING !
umi ALWAYS LIE and do bullshit to their consumers. im so TERRIBLY disappointed !
can u gimme the link to the 6gb ram and OLED claims ?
recent articles here https://www.gizchina.com/tag/umi-super/
Sharp actually does reportedly have an OLED display in the works, but from what I have heard it won’t be ready till 2017 and I highly doubt UMi would have access to it. Xiaomi will probably be the first to use it.
That’s not true.Foxconn will invest in developing OLED and they might even have a few 6G lines aimed at it in China already but they won’t have a product in 2017. As for the main target, that’s Apple, Sharp’s main customer.
It is true. Sharp has been exploring OLED well before the Foxconn takeover, as far back as 2013 they had prototypes. Foxconn will facilitate it’s development. And Apple signed a deal with Samsung for $2.6 billion to use their AMOLED’s for 2017.
Yeah yeah yeah…. You both seems to try to disagree just not to be agreeing hahaha.
But anyways of foxcom will have a product by 2017 it’s tounderstand it should be used for the 2018 line so to speak. As this things have to be planned ahead and (fool+mistakes)Proofed as much as possible.
i just hope for a good phone suited to my budget , amidst all these debates 😀
whats 6G lines ?
Well if this one will cost 300$ it will be fail 😉 price range 170$ i think no more 200 max
if it is one buck above $190 , it’ll be the most fucked up and badly hyped phone EVER :@ !
How much internal storage?? micro sd card slot? Looks pretty nice, will be interested to see the price.
sounds like a sensible midranger. but the vernee apollo lite looks better for less money
Nice design , decent specs , what worries me about is the lack of 3G/4G bands for US
Worry about quality, ROM and support.
hahaha … pretty sure that’ll all go to hell , looking at the extent of perjury here
p10 is shit , a/c to balco…
avoid this bullshit
When did I say it was shit?
It’s more than capable for most people.
sorry , i was a bit enraged. the specs had me EXTREMELY disappointed !
not ‘shit’ BUT lower mid range category (not good for games , but you already said it)
not good enough for POWER USERS and people really wanting to use their phones in end-to-end fashion,
Theres very few phones in this price bracket for real power users.
Weight and dimensions please.
Since when P10 is super-fast ?
X20 is more likely can say a bit fast but still SD652 is better
you cannot imagine the extent of my disappointment…
SD 652 wud hav been a fine compensation !
i hope u have super amoled screen for this phone, but not now, i like umi zero for screen
It’s a Sharp display which means it is LCD. Sharp makes some excellent LCD’s.
In photo is SUPER CAPACITY NOT SUPER CAMPACITY haha UMI
bullshit posts and under powered phone…
fucking idiots !
if they we so FRUGAL could have gone for x10 , x20 OR the best o’ the bunch , SD 652!
HOW MANY DAMN TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY THAT CHINA ARE YET TO MAKE A GOOD SD 652 PHONE !!!!
Seize the day and SEIZE THE CHANCE DAMMIT !
Vivo and Alcatel/TCL have made a few good 652 phones. As for this phone being underpowered it really depends what you use it for. If you are a heavy gamer it is probably not for you but it has more than enough power for most people.
links plz to the TCL phones (VIVO will make me go bankrupt :p )
i play games , yes 😀 BUT honestly … my optimist alter ego was expecting an 820 in there …
but my realist self kept saying x20 or SD 652 because tbh , they REALLY went over-board with all the FB teasers and the hype …. all that JUST to bring us all down once again. this was a case of indirect corporate perjury and i’ll have a REALLY hard trusting UMI again after all this :/
dint they also say 6GB ram ? bet they lied about that too !
I knew it wasn’t going to be the 652 or X20, I fully expected 6753. The X20 is too new for a brand like UMi to use and most of these smaller brands don’t use Qualcomm chips.
Alcatel Idol 4s uses the 652, it’s made by TCL.
Out in June?
why does Qualcomm have such high royalty per chip ???
Because customers pay it.
They can’t use the X20 when it is vaporware.
better than p10 atleast…
Nothing super about it anymore & after so much anticipation & false commercials I am certain they won’t sold much of those.
I figured it was going to be MT6753 so this is a slight upgrade. Overall it’s really not a bad phone although I am interested to see how the Panasonic camera sensor performs.
If there will be the real panasonic sensor, it would be good no doubt about the sensor.
But the previous teaser about 6gb memory is already a miss.
Ulephone Vienna has that Panasonic sensor, I think. Read it in a review somewhere
It’s a good phone but for 160$.
A couple months you will be able to get it for that or cheaper.
Helio P10 -_- better if they use X20 :/
Such a disappointment ! Where is the 6GB RAM and at least Helio x20…!?
Will there ever be a flagship from UMI?
Super campacity, super convienent…
They can’t even make a couple of slides right.
Did somebody really believe that UMI have the cash or the influence to actually get am SD820? They couldn’t get an SD65x if their life depended on it.
In reality Qualcomm chips are much more expensive and hard to get(from smaller manufacturers)than MTK.
The P10 is a nice chip, but not a worthy upgrade from the 6752 or the 6753.
People with phones that bear those chips should upgrade only for X20.
RANT: BE WARE:
isn’t the Gionee Elife S8 got a P10 ?
Well we know Gionee does optimize pretty good their ROMs but UMI for crying out loud!!!
Use the cheap X10 and be gone with it!!!
(Should be cheaper now)
Any way, how do you market a 39k antutu device as SUPER FAST BLA BLA BLA when it could have been an easy choice to go with the X10 at aorund 59k antutu (yes I mean it because antutu is a regular that most use for metrics (as inaccurate as that may be)ok)
It blows my mind after all those mirrors and smoke!!!
So this one does not support 4K recording I presume? Good old LG G2 with custom rom can still do that…
