UMI X2, a quad-core 1080p smartphone for $260
Looks like we have another Chinese electronics company to watch out for as it has just announced its 5-inch quad-core flagship with a full HD display and a price tag of about $260, the UMI X2.
The UMI X2 sports a 5-inch 1080p IPS display, a 13 megapixel camera, 3 megapixel front-facing, 32GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 3G, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, and dual-SIM/dual-standby capabilities. Powering the device is a MediaTek MTK6589 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, a PowerVR SGX544 GPU, and a 2,500 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.1 Jellybean out of the box with a planned upgrade to Android 4.2
The UMI X2 is slated for release in the Indian market between March 15 to 20 with a price tag of INR14,000 ($260) or around Php10,500. Now that’s what you call high-performance at a low cost. Let’s just hope that this smartphone lands locally.
