The original Ulefone Be Touch was one of the better performing smartphones with a high AnTuTu benchmark score of over 48,000 mainly due to its lower resolution 720p display. Now that Ulefone has upgraded the screen on the Be Touch 2 to a full HD 1080p display the new device’s performance came into question especially since the company decided to use the same processor as the original Be Touch, the MediaTek MTK6752.
The MediaTek MTK6752 is a 64-bit octa-core processor running at a frequency of 1.7GHz. On the Ulefone Be Touch 2 with its 1080p display, the MTK6752 was able to get an AnTuTu benchmark score of around 45,600 which is, as expected, lower than the score the original Be Touch was able to achieve. But according to Ulefone, the 2,000 point difference in the benchmark score of the Be Touch 2 is not big enough to make a real difference in its performance.
To prove it, the company published a video showing the Ulefone Be Touch 2 running different applications at the same time as well as playing games like Real Racer 3. The temperature of the Be Touch 2 was also checked after each portion to check if the device was overheating. The video showed that the Be Touch 2 was easily able to handle all the tasks thrown at it without any major issues proving that the higher display resolution and slightly lower benchmark score did not affect its performance.
The rest of the Be Touch 2’s specifications include a 5.5-inch IPS LED display, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 3,050mAh battery. The Be Touch 2 is equipped with a home button fingerprint scanner, a 13-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX214 sensor, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Additionally, Ulefone is currently holding a flash sale for the Be Touch 2 in partnership with 20 China-based online cross-border shops. Every day from June 16 to July 1 starting at 18:00 (GMT +8), a limited number of Be Touch 2 units will be sold from each participating store for only USD179.99.
