…..Annnnd the Chinese boys are at it again as one of its leading OEMs, UMi just launched the UMi Max smartphone….. and it’s a beauty…
The UMi Max is an all-aluminium clad phone with a very smooth feel about it, reminiscent of what obtains on the Apple iPhone 6 gang. It features a 5.5in IPS LCD 1080x1920p screen @401ppi, with MediaTek’s Octacore Helio P10 CPU running things in the background. It’s 3GB ample RAM space is complemented by a 16GB ROM ; which can be expanded via microSD to 256GB.
Still in front, we have the “Breathing LED” light embedded around the home button at the bottom, which is one of UMi’s trademark features. This feature sees the home button light up in a breathing-like effect in different colours assigned to different notifications. We also have a 5MP selfie shooter.
Out back we have a Panasonic 13MP main camera with a dual-tone LED flash and the fingerprint scanner. Android’s OS 6.0 comes installed out of the box with a non-removable 4000mAh Sony battery grinding it’s gears. It also has a USB Type-C port onboard as well.
The UMi Max is presently on presale here for $139.99 but would increase slightly to $179.99 after the presale period.
