UMi Zero 2 that was earlier teased by the company to sport e-ink display is now seemed to be ditched to give much more powerful specifications. The Zero 2 will be the successor for UMi Zero that was launched earlier this year. It also includes an oval shaped physical home button but doesn’t the fingerprint sensor. The design of the device almost resembles with Meizu MX5 and Meizu Pro 5 while there is no rear view of the device in the image.
It features a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a Quad HD (2560 X 1440) resolution that is manufactured by Samsung. Under the hood is the MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor making the UMi Zero 2 the first ever smartphone to be powered by a deca-core processor. It is supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage while there is no information about the MicroSD card slot.
There are no details regarding the other specifications of the device, but it is mentioned to include dual rear cameras where one camera sensor is used for normal capturing, and the other camera sensor will give the DSLR-like Depth-of-Feild effect. It will be priced at $299 making UMi Zero 2 the most affordable device to include such a high-end specifications.
The earlier mentioned specifications of the device are more like mid-range featuring a 1080p display, 3GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It sports a metal unibody that gives great strength to the device. Earlier to this, the company had launched devices like UMi Hammer & Hammer S that are known for their strength where we had even tested the UMi Hammer’s strength to the end. Though the device doesn’t last after some hard-core tests, the device can sustain regular drops and scratches.
The company had even entry-level smartphones like UMi Fair and UMi Rome that are priced at $99 and $89 respectively. The UMi Fair also included a fingerprint sensor while UMi Rome came with 3GB of RAM. Talking about the UMi Zero 2, the device specifications looks almost similar to other premium smartphones on paper, but the performance of the device cannot be commented until we tested the device.
