UMi Touch Could Be The First Mediatek Phone To Get CM13 Based On Android 6.0.1

by Joe 8

We love Mediatek SoCs for their cheap pricing and competitive performance. However, one of the biggest drawbacks of MTK based smartphones is the lack of software support. Even the latest smartphone from UMi, the UMi Touch features a MediaTek MT6753 chipset under the hood. However, that reportedly won’t be a hindrance for the company for developing CM13 for the device.

UMi is said to be working on the Android 6.0.1 based CM13 release for the UMi Touch, which would be welcome news for all Touch users. According to the company, it has finally come to an agreement and has received codes to work on the CyanogenMod OS 13.

The company seems to be focused on software updates for its new device. We have already seen the two updates for the UMi Touch within two weeks of launch via OTA. But don’t expect the CM13 OS to be released for the device very soon. While the company has not given us a time frame for the new release, we’ll probably have to wait for a few weeks at least to hear more about the OS.

So, did you update your Touch with the second OTA update?

To recap, the UMi Touch comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display with MT6753, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 13MP Sony IMX328 camera, dual SIM cards and a front facing fingerprint sensor. There’s also a large 4000mAh battery on board the device. You can check out UMi’s other devices from its official website.

    CM13 is certainly a great news if eventually they could manage it since the system is ultra small. I am pretty satisfy with MM if not.

  • Joan

    Unlike some local Chinese smartphone companies, UMi seems to be spending some time developing the ROMs for its new devices. They have release two FOTA, since they released the UMI Touch.

  • William

    When would the CM13 be released?

  • Malcolm

    Good news, Chinese mobile phone manufacturers began to focus on software, ulefone, Umi is a good representative.
