Chinese manufacturer UMi has produced an incredibly cheap phablet which looks just like a Galaxy Note 5. Reports have surfaced about the UMi ROME, and while the specs are unconfirmed, it could be one of the best-value phones we've seen. You're getting a lot for only US$89.99.
For this price, customers will be getting a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 and pixel density of 267 ppi. This makes it a relatively low-end display but one that comes very cheap. The back panel of the device has 2.5D curve, giving it a striking resemblance to the Galaxy Note 5.
Regarding the ROME's internal hardware, it has a 64-bit, octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor working together with an ARM Mali T-720 GPU. One interesting hardware choice is a large offering of 3 GB of RAM, which puts it on the level of current new flagships for only a fraction of the cost.
The UMi ROME's main camera is reportedly a 13 MP IMX164 sensor from Sony and comes paired with a dual-LED flash at the back and a 2 MP selfie camera on the front. This will all be powered by a 2,500 mAh battery. The ROME will also run Android 5.1 Lollipop.
How this device actually performs, after confirmation of the specs is made, this could be a solidly-performing budget device.
