We’ve heard a lot about UMi Plus E lately, UMi’s latest flagship will be the first smartphone on the market with a MediaTek Helio P20 CPU onboard. We’ve already learned how the Onyx Black version of the phone has been made in the same way the latest iPhone 7 has. We also know UMi goes through 125 processes to get the final premium metal feel we see on the Plus E.
Today we’ll finally check out the real performance of the Helio P20 and 6GB RAM powered Chinese smartphone. Here’s the video:
In the video we see — after a quick look at the sleek looking Onyx Black UMi Plus E— how the phone runs the most popular mobile benchmark software, a.k.a. AnTuTu Benchmark.
The end result is over 60,000 points, which is quite excellent compared to the previous Helio P10, it’s indeed about 20% more powerful. Even so, the smaller 16nm CPU technology allows for a 25% less power consumption and heat.
GPU wise, we find a 25% increase in performance over the Helio P10, with a 3D score of over 11,000 points, that should mean pretty good gaming experiences.
In the last part of the video we see the 6GB of RAM at work with more than 50 apps open at the same time, the phone is still smooth and apps seem to load back relatively fast, even after launching games or browsing the web.
The UMi Plus E feels like it’s going to be a hell of a “budget flagship”, it has a redefined and premium look and at the same times it ensures more than average performance, which is impressive for a device that will sell for less than $200.
But let’s take a look at all the other specs of the UMi Plus E. The smartphone comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD Sharp display, 64GB of internal storage (expandable up to 256GB)and a big 4000mAh battery with PE+ fast charging support.
The rear camera on the UMi Plus E is a Samsung 13.0MP shooter with PDAF, while on the front we find a 5.0MP camera.
The UMi Plus E features a fingerprint scanner (Touch ID2.1) and will supports Cat. 6 4G LTE Networks.
