UMI Plus sold 64 thousand pieces in the presale period

UMI are reporting that their “budget flagship” model UMI Plus is selling pretty good in the presales with 64 thousand pieces already pre-ordered. That’s maybe not looking that impressive compared to millions gargantuans like Apple or Samsung are throwing around, but still a success for the small chinese brand.

First orders of the UMI Plus are being shipped starting today so September 30th and all of them should be done in matter of days. Today is also the last day you are eligible to get the $70 discount and get the UMI Plus for just $179.99, tomorrow the price rises to the retail level so $249.99.

    Umi selling a helio p10 for 249$ and le eco 820 with snapdragon 820 for the same price??

      The price is fake. Almost all people will get the Plus for $180, with the “discount”.

        Yep and even at $180 I still say it’s much when you can get the 32GB Redmi Note 4 for the same price.
        I’ve even seen the LeEco 820 for $215 on fastcardtech. I would have bought it but the 5.7 2K screen and 3100 mAh battery didn’t seem like a good idea to me.

          its a GREAT phone , you’re lucky if you can buy it

          if i had the money , i’d buy the Le Max 2 with my eyes closed !

            Did have the money, didn’t buy it. Even LeEco recognized the battery was a real problem and now the new ones have 4000 and 5000 mAh batteries.
            Usually battery is not such a big deal to me but sometimes I just need an entire day of GPS in the mountains.
            Yes I do have an external battery pack but it’s still inconvenient to have to plug that in.

          I heard that FastCardTech is selling used or refurbished phones, that’s why they are so cheap. It’s not a good site at all… I never tried it myself, but watch out.

            They do sell those too but I think the brand phones are of this type.
            I just ordered a Redmi Note 4 from them and I really doubt it could be used or refurbished since it just came out.
            If there’s something wrong with it I’ll make sure to let everyone know.

    Now that the Plus is already being shipped, how long until UMi hypes its new upcoming flagship?

    64k imbeciles !

    Wow, when Redmi Note 4 and Le2 are both Helio X20 and Remi Note 3 Pro si SD652 at that price? Not to mention that 20-30$ more get you a Snapdragon 820 (Zuk 2) phone?
    I`m scratching my head here.

    I did buy mine for less than €138 with shipping. Looked like a good price.
