Exclusive: Hands On With The UMI Iron Flagship [Video]

by Joel 25

We have been hearing a lot about UMI’s latest flagship, the UMI Iron, thanks to the company’s carefully crafted teasers. Till now, we had some details about the specs of the handset as well as the design, but now, we have got the first set of hands on pictures of the device.


The overall design is more or less the same as the one shown in the previous leaks. The phone features an all metal body measuring just 7.9mm in thickness. The body looks well crafted and solid, with both the power and the volume button lying on the left hand side. The right side is totally clean. As for the top, you will find a headphone jack while at the bottom, you have the USB port.


The design looks quite good. But if you looks carefully, it seems to be inspired from HTC’s One M9, which is actually a good thing considering that the phone has received positive reviews for its design.

Up front, above the display, you can see the camera as well as sensors on top. The area below the display is clean, thanks to the on screen buttons. On the display, you can clearly see the thick bezels on all the four sides. But that’s not really a complaint, as the overall package looks quite good.

The back features a two tone design, with the camera and the dual LED flash lying right on top. At the center, you can see the UMI logo while down below, there’s the speakers.



As for the specs, the phone will feature MT6753 octa-core 64-bit chip with 3GB RAM and 16GB of storage. There will be a 5.5-inch display with full HD 1080p resolution. At the back, there will be a 13MP Sony IMX214 camera sensor along with an 8MP shooter. Other features include 4G LTE connectivity, 3350mAh battery and Android 5.1 Lollipop version.
