For the past few weeks, we have been seeing rumors and leaks about the upcoming UMi Iron Pro flagship. Earlier today, the company decided to officially unveil the device. The UMi Iron Pro comes with pretty great specs, all for just $179.99. UMi has particularly focused on the security on the device, incorporating three different security features to make sure that the phone’s data is always secure.
The UMi Iron Pro features the MT6753 octa-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, which powers most mid-range flagships in the market right now. There will be 3GB of RAM on board which is enough for your everyday multi-tasking needs. For storage, you get 16GB ROM further expandable via MicroSD, thanks to the hybrid dual SIM Card / MicroSD slot. As for the display, the Iron Pro comes with a 5.5-inch FHD screen, the same one as seen on its previous generation.
At the back, the phone comes with the Sony IMX214 13MP camera with dual LED flash. Up front, there’s a decent 8MP OV shooter ideal for selfies. Under the hood, there is a 3100mAh battery inside a 7.9mm thin body. With the battery, the phone weighs about 148 grams. Finally, there’s Android 5.1 OS running on the smartphone.
One of the highlights of the phone is the new USB Type-C port. Also, you get three security features namely Fingerprint ID, Eyeprint ID and Voice Recognition which will ensure the safety of the data inside the phone. Its really good to see a local Chinese manufacturer incorporate such security features on the device.
Overall, the UMi Iron Pro looks like a great package for just $179.99. The security features, 3GB RAM and the 3100mAh battery makes it a complete package.
Since the phone is now launched, we hope to review the device pretty soon. So, stay tuned for more updates, reviews and hands-on of the Iron Pro in the coming days.
