After the success of the UMi Plus, UMi announced that a more powerful version was on schedule for the end of the year. It seems the company is faithful to its declaration, since today the UMi Plus E full specs are available!

The new UMi device takes the concept of the “budget flagship” introduced by the UMi Plus to a whole new level, we can see some really first class specifications.


UMi Plus E Specs

  • Mediatek Helio P20, Octa-Core processor clocked at 2.3ghz
  • 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM
  • 64GB of internal storage
  • SHARP 5.5 FHD LTPS Arc Screen Display
  • SONY 4000mAh battery with PE+ Quick Charging support

The successor of the P10, the Helio P20 sees an increase in frequency on all the 8 Cortex A53 cores. The performance cluster comes with a 20% higher performance at 2.3GHz. On the GPU side, the Mali T860MP2 has been upgraded to a T880MP2 and to 900MHz, for a 25% upgrade over P10.

The multimedia blocks can now decode and encode in 4K. Finally, the biggest news here is that the P20 is manufactured on a 16nm FinFET node, for lower power consumption and less heat. Since UMi has earned trust and confidence from Mediatek they got the deal to be the first brand to launch a device with Helio P20.

Another impressive aspect is for sure the RAM amount. The 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM paired with Helio P20 will allow to run basically any available app and having it always in memory, exactly where you had left it. Also, with 64GB of internal storage, there is plenty storage to fill, but you can also expand it. By using a 256GB microSD card, you get 320GB of total storage.

The brand new UMI Plus E (E stands for Extreme) embeds an LTE Cat.6 modem which supports 4G+. In addition, the product supports VoLTE. It’s voice calls over a 4G LTE network, rather than the 2G or 3G connections. VoLTE can connect calls up to twice as fast as the current methods. Moreover, call quality is way higher compared to traditional calls.

Lastly, how much will it cost? The similar in specs OnePlus 3 sells for $399. The UMi Plus E carries a price of 199$ for presales, a surprisingly low price for the hardware it packs. Its official price will be $269.99. What do you think of it? Let us know in the comments.

    UMi will get better when they introduce Helio x30/x35 next year.

    Umi’s greatest minus is their cameras. I previously owned a Max variant and it’s a bit… low-grade.

    Hope this Extreme version surpasses my expectation.

  • Hoping they decide to optimize in a couple of areas before launching what looks like a beast-of-a-phone, at least on on-paper.
    Their displays have warmer colors than all other phones, and to such an extent that even a white screen seems off-balance on their IPS panels which ruins gameplay/VR/YouTubing experience.

    PRE-SALE ????

    where are the phone on PRE-SALE

    I can not find it

  • At 199$ it’s fine, but I prefer to wait for Vernee or Cubot to do a P20 phone.
    At least their phones are reliable, unlike UMi.

  • Another chinese phone that has the power, but not the camera, nor sensors.


      Exactly what i was thingking 🙂

    What other choice for <200usd, front censor, b20, and decent soc (around x20 performance is good, but not p10) ?


  • Kasia
