Breaking news! UMi are planning to launch a faster, more powerful version of the quad-core UMi X2 named the UMi X2 Turbo complete with 1.5Ghz quad-core MT6589T processor!
Umi are reporting on their forum that a new quad-core MT6589T (Turbo) version of the UMi X2 will be launched. The new version of the phone will receive a more powerful 1.5Ghz MT6589T processor which apparently boosts performance by between 35-50%!
