September is a month full of events in the technological world: we have already seen the IFA going full steam ahead, with most of the biggest producers announcing their new lineup of products, now we also know that Apple will unveil their new iPhone 7 on the same month. On September 7th there will be another release, that of UMi Plus, the device that UMi teased on IFA 2016.
UMi has confirmed the release of their latest “budget flagship” on the very same day as iPhone 7 and claims that their phone doesn’t fear any competition, since it is powerful and well balanced. Let’s have a look at the specs of their new product.
UMi Plus uses 6000 Series aluminum materials for its body, the screen size is 5.5″ and uses a Sharp panel with 1920×1080 resolution and a 2.5D Arc Glass. It uses the same position for the fingerprint scanner as iPhone and the sensor and has an unlocking speed of only 0.1s! Helio P10 Octa-Core processor, 4GB Samsung RAM memory and 32GB of internal storage compose some perfectly balanced specifications to give the best possible performances for everyone while keeping a low price tag.
The front camera is a 5.0MP unit with GalaxyCore®GC5005 sensor, the rear one is a 13MP shooter with SAMSUNG®3L8 sensor, for fast and accurate shots. The big 4000 mAh 4.35V battery also support PE+ fast charging technology, thanks to the USB Type-C port!
