Ubik Uno – $299 No Bezel Smartphone starts Crowdsourcing Campaign



We have seen few crowdsourcing projects that have gained popularity with consumer-centric devices. Ubik is the new entrant in the smartphone market funded through crowdsourcing. The company wants to kill the money spent on marketing and advertising, and indeed make the flagship device available to the end consumer without digging deep into their pockets. Ubik Uno is the first smartphone from the company that comes with no bezel display built into a one-piece Aluminium frame featuring flagship specifications.

The company went through the Kickstarter campaign to achieve its target of $200,000. Once the Kickstarter ends, the device will go for manufacturing and exclusively sold through their website for just $345. The Kickstarter versions which are brought through the campaign are expected to ship by the end of September.

The Ubik Uno sports a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) IPS display with no bezels and comes protected by Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by MediaTek MT6795 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz with 3GB of RAM. There is also a 16GB of internals storage of which 13GB will be available for the end user and microSD card slot with a maximum of 64GB capacity.

There is a 20MP rear camera featuring Sony Exmor RS IMX230 sensor with an aperture of f/2.2 and it is capable of recording videos in 4K at 30fps, Full HD at 60fps and HD quality at 120fps. It also has a 5MP front camera that can take decent selfies.

According to the company, the 3,100mAh battery is expected to give 8 hours of talk time and last up to 200 hours on standby. It runs on stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with no bloatware app added except Ubik’s camera app. As it runs on stock Android, the consumers can get the OS updates very quickly.

For countries where the smartphones are launched with network contracts, this device will be fully unlocked and supports all the connectivity features like 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The device measures 153 x 73.6 x 8.7 mm and weighs 170 grams.

With the future devices, Ubik also wants to offer the consumers to pick what specifications they needed on their smartphone.
