UMi unveiled the second generation version of the popular Iron flagship called as the UMi Iron Pro a few weeks back. The phone retains a similar design as the previous generation but brings some additional upgrades. One of the highlights of the device is its all metal body, which is made out of a single piece of magnesium and aluminum alloy. The CNC finish and curved edges gives the smartphone a premium look, despite its sub-$170 pricing.
The phone looks like a complete package, featuring the much loved metal body, powerful specs and an affordable pricing. To recap, the phone comes with the MT6753 octa-core chip which powers most mid-range flagships in the market right now. There’s 3GB of RAM on board and 16GB of expandable internal storage. At the front, there’s a large 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display.
While these are great specs by itself, what really sets the UMi Iron Pro apart from the crowd is the inclusion of biometric security features. You have Eyeprint ID as well as a fingerprint sensor to ensure that your data is safe. This is an essential feature in a smartphone since most users have lots of personal data stores on their devices and it becomes necessary to protect them from strangers.
At the back, there’s a 13MP Sony IMX214 camera with dual LED color temperature flash. Up front, you have an OV camera which also comes with an LED flash, making it a great phone for selfie lovers. Finally, a 3000mAh battery, USB Type-C reversible port and Android 5.1 Lollipop OS makes sure that the phone is up to date.
Its a great phone if you are looking for something under $180. There are a lot of promotions going on websites like Coolicool where you can get the device as low as $149.99
In fact, if you buy the device in the next one hour, you can get it for just $149.99. Later, the Iron Pro will be available for $179.99. So, if you were planning to get a phone, this might be the right time! [source]
