UMi Touch is already on pre-order and from the specs and the pricing, it’s a pretty good smartphone. The phone comes with a CNC metal body, and a 13MP Sony IMX328 camera at the back with dual LED flash. While we are yet to test the camera performance of the UMi Touch, the company has released a new video showing off the camera UI as well as a few samples taken from the device.
UMi has decided to compare the Touch’s camera with that of the Redmi Note 3 and the Xiaomi Mi 5. The comparison isn’t very thorough, but it shows a couple of pictures from the UMi Touch in direct comparison to the ones taken from the other two Xiaomi handsets. From the basic comparison, we could say that the UMi Touch managed to take darker photos with reasonable level of details, sometimes even better than Redmi Note 3. The noise was kept to a minimum in pictures where the light was not sufficient. But only after a good review from our side can we decide on the quality of the camera on the Touch.
UMi has also revealed some details on the camera UI of the device. The design is simple with 7 panes, the default one featuring a virtual shutter, flash trigger, HDR, Auto capture with gesture “Yeah” and front camera key. On top of the interface, there is the Panorama mode, picture in picture mode and the default mode. Swiping to the right brings you the choice of 9 filters with live preview. The phone can also take 1080p videos at 30fps.
To recap, the UMi Touch comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display with 2.5D glass. Under the hood, the phone has MT6753 octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, expandable via MicroSD. The rear camera is a Sony IMX328 13MP sensor, and you get 4000mAh battery at the back. Other features include a fast fingerprint sensor, 4G LTE support, Android 6.0 and dual SIM dual standby.
