In case you don’t know, UMi is a small chinese smartphone manufacturer. The company has been hard at work preparing a new handset called the UMi Zero 2, which features an e-ink display on the rear side.
Today we received word that the handset will be released in the second quarter of 2016. We also got ahold of some specifications including a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Powering the handset is a Helio X20 processor from MediaTek backed with 4GB of RAM. The handset will also include a front-facing camera and a dual rear-facing camera setup along with 64GB of internal storage and a super durable 2.5D glass screen. The design of the handset appears to be made of nearly all aluminium. The images also show an ultra-slim profile and a front mounted home button, but things could change between now and the official launch.
According to sources, the UMi Zero 2 will be kept budget friendly and cost an affordable $299 off contract.
