UMi seems to be doing well with its new smartphones. The UMi Touch was a pretty good mid-range device, with powerful features and a large battery that gave it an edge over others. Now, the company has announced a toned down version, called the UMi Touch X which aims to satisfy the needs of the budget large battery lovers.
The UMi Touch X brings the same metallic design of the Touch, featuring up to 95% CNC Cut aluminum metal. It features smooth curves to make sure that the phone fits well in hand. This design particularly comes in handy because of the large battery inside. The Touch X comes with a 4000mAh battery which could increase the weight, but the overall 8.5mm thin body and curved design help in the ergonomics.
Another highlighted feature of the UMi Touch X is the FHD display. Yes, the phone sports a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p panel with 2.5D arch corning gorilla glass 3 for the best viewing experience in the segment. At the back, the phone comes with an 8MP Sony IMX 219 camera sensor, which the company claims is better than most 13MP cameras. Plus, given that the sensor has been in the market for quite some time, it’s easier for the company to optimize the software for the maximum performance.
Another highlighted feature of the Touch X is the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS on board. It’s good to see the new OS inside the device when there are still companies releasing Android lollipop powered flagships this time of the year. Other features of the phone include MT6735A quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB ROM, 4G LTE support and dual SIM dual standby.
The UMi Touch X goes on sale for a special pre-order price of $119.99 from April 21. After the pre-sale period, the price will go back to $129.99.
