It’s only been a few months since the release of the Ulefone’s flagship Be Touch smartphone yet today the company unveiled the device’s successor, the Be Touch 2, and is already set to release it very soon.

Actually, looking at the specifications of the Be Touch 2, they’re pretty much identical to the original Be Touch including the MediaTek MTK6752 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, the 3GB of RAM, the 16GB of internal storage, the support for expandable storage up to 64GB via microSD, the dual SIM standby support, the 13-megapixel Sony IMX214 sensor rear camera, and the 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Be Touch 2 now has a full HD 1080p display instead of the 720p screen found on the original Be Touch. It also has a larger 3050mAh battery compared to the 2550mAh found in its predecessor. Lastly, the new device will run the slightly newer Android 5.1 Lollipop.

The Be Touch 2 will also be available in the same Space Grey and Silk White variants. There will also be available fabric cases in either beige, blue, or pink. According to the company, the Be Touch 2 will be available very soon from Ulefone partners at a retail price of $179.99 which is quite competitive considering its feature-set.
