As most of you probably already know, China is home to many smartphone manufacturing companies. Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, OnePlus, OPPO, Vivo, Acer… are all brands you’ve probably heard of by now. These companies are well-known, that is true, but China is also home to many, many smaller companies, such as Elephone, Ulefone, Zopo, Cubot and UMi, for example. Speaking of UMi, this is a company we’ve talked about quite a few times thus far, and we’ve reviewed a number of their devices. The UMi Super is company’s latest flagship, and also a device which we plan to review really soon. Before that happens, however, we do have some new UMi Super-related news, read on.
It seems like UMi intends to release a new version of their ‘Super’ handset, and this variant of the device will be compatible with 4G LTE bands in both the U.S. and Canada. This smartphone will be called UMi Super EURO2016 Champion Edition, and will become available for a pre-order next week. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see this device in person. You’ll notice that the phone is Blue, while the regular UMi Super comes in Gray, Silver and Gold color variants. It is also worth saying that UMi entered 46 countries thus far, not counting North America, but it seems like quite a few people from North America are interested in UMi’s products considering that around 10% of UMi website visitors come from either the U.S. or Canada, which is why the company decided to release this new variant of the device.
The UMi Super EURO2016 Champion Edition will, presumably, ship with the same specs as the original UMi Super handset. This means that you can expect it to come with a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. The phone will be fueled by the Helio P10 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz, along with the Mali-T860. The 4,000mAh battery will also going to be included here, and will not be removable. The 13-megapixel camera (Panasonic’s sensor) will be placed on the back of this phone, and a 5-megapixel snapper will be available up front. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed here with some additions by the company, and a rear-facing fingerprint scanner will also going to be included in this package.
