Since the launch of the iPhone 7, we’ve seen a real rush from Chinese manufacturers to get as close as possible to what everybody appears to love now — a metal unibody matte black phone. UMi couldn’t resist of course, so here we have the Onyx Black UMi Plus E.
UMi is a company that follows trends and tries to make what customers want. The creation of the UMi Touch is a good example, if you recall the user-defined “Project Apollo“, this time they went with a gorgeous full black look on the UMi Plus E, which they now call “Onyx Black”.
It’s crafted from a bead-blasted piece of aluminum, just like iPhone 7’s, and it comes with a deep matte finish. The result is a phone that’s so black it’s hard to tell where the metal ends and the front coated glass begins, or at least that’s how it appears in photos.
The Onyx Black UMi Plus E will also be much more scratch resistant than let’s say the Jet Black iPhone 7, since it uses aerospace-class aluminum alloy and there’s no external glass coating (duh).
The phone will feel great in hands and the matte black color won’t wear off, they promise a real premium device that won’t disappoint user’s expectations.
UMi Plus E Specifications
The UMi Plus E will be the world’s first MediaTek Helio P20 powered smartphone on the market. It’ll feature a 5.5-inch Full HD Sharp display and it’ll pack the impressive amount of 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expandable to 256GB). The phone will sport a 4000mAh battery with PE+ fast charging (PumpExpress).
In the camera department we find a 13MP Samsung shooter with PDAF on the back. The fingerprint scanner is in the front home button. As far as connectivity, it supports Cat. 6 4G LTE.
The UMi Plus E is available for $199
