Chinese smartphone market is filled with manufacturers who go underground for a few months or even years and suddenly come up with a surprise handset out of the blue. IUNI is one such smartphone maker and the last smartphone from the company was released back in 2014. So, for the past two years, we haven’t heard much from the company, which was disappointing since its smartphones had both looks as well as powerful hardware. But now, it looks like we could meet a new IUNI smartphone, namely the IUNI U4 with powerful specs. We have to caution you that the leaked renders and specs seem to be made by a designer, so we are not entirely sure whether this would end up being announced this year. Anyway, let’s take a look at what IUNI U4 could look like.
First, let’s take a look at IUNI U4’s design revealed by the new renders. We can see that the phone looks quite premium in these pictures. You get a curved back and a body measuring just 7.2mm in thickness which is pretty slim even for today’s standards. The 5.2-inch display up front looks great because of the super thin bezels on the sides. There are three capacitive buttons just below the display. Further, we can see that the phone has a side mounted fingerprint sensor. Overall, design wise, the phone is beautiful.
Now coming to the specs, the IUNI U4 will come with the mighty Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor clocked at 2.15GHz. There will be two RAM and storage options, 4GB / 6GB (LPDDR4) and 64GB /128GB (UFS 2.0) storages. At the back, the phone reportedly features a 13MP Sony IMX377 sensor. Other features of the phone include side mounted fingerprint ID, IUNI OS 2.0 and a price tag of 1999 Yuan ($308) for the 4GB + 64GB version. The 6GB RAM + 128GB version is said to retail for 2499 Yuan ($382).
Like mentioned above, these renders and information seem to come from a third party designer. So, we aren’t sure whether it would end up as the real deal. Hence, make sure you take this news with a pinch of salt.
So, what do you think about the phone’s designs and specs?[source]
