Today Ulefone announce a new 5-inch device named Ulefone Metal, which, according to the company, will offer users all premium experiences for the best price available. According to the design and specs, this model should be Ulefone’s major player in the mid-range arena.
As its name suggests, Ulefone Metal is made of a magnesium-aluminum alloy unibody, manufactured with CNC cutting technique. Following Ulefone’s conventional designing language, the metal body has a slight curve near the edges to deliver better grip. On the front side, there is a 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass protecting the display. So in general, Ulefone metal is supposed to deliver a solid while smooth visual impression.
Inside the phone, there is the MTK6753 octa-core 64-bit chipset, 3GB RAM, and 16GB storage. The RAM amount is apparently a bonus point for mid-range device since it will greatly improve multitasking performance. And MTK6753 has proven its capability on most phones with 5.5-inch 1080P display, so 5-inch HD device won’t be a big deal for its MALI T720 GPU.
For photography, Ulefone Metal has adopted Sony IMX149 8MP CMOS (interpolated to 13MP) and a 5-piece lens kit. Ulefone says fewer pixels will not lead to a downgrade in imaging since the high-accuracy lens will ensure better single-pixel quality. Besides, the pre-installed camera app will offer manual mode in the user interface for modification of Exposure, ISO and WB. Plus there is a fingerprint scanner, which will support at most 5 fingerprint IDs with each to open a specific app. Ulefone says the Metal will be the most moderately priced phone available for this function.
The device gets its power from a 3050mAh li-polymer battery that will easily last heavy users a full day or light users 1.5 day. The 5″ display consumes less energy than a 5.5″ display while GPU will also work at lower capacity on HD resolution than FHD. Based on Android 6.0, the Ulefone Metal software will have some tweaks such as custom multitask window and AssistiveTouch like on the iPhone as well as graphics interface in the settings app.
In terms of body color, Ulefone Metal will be available in 3 versions. Among them, black and grey will both have black front side while the silver will have white face. Ulefone Metal will meet buyers’ expectations but how much will cost? Well, Ulefone invites you to find out more about the device here and to guess the price in a giveaway!
