Review of the new UMi Plus E – Design, Hardware, Camera, Battery


UMi is a well known Chinese smartphone manufacturing company which has been releasing mobiles some years now. This company has released some good mobiles, with the best to be the UMi Plus. Now it presented to us an upgraded version of Umi Plus, the UMI Plus E . You might have heard it and as Umi Plus Extreme as it was believed to be named. Yes there where some models from UMI that came out not to be that good, but it seems lately the company has left all these to the past and made a big turn to quality, presenting to us devices of high quality! Umi Plus E is believed to be one of these. So let us see what exactly is made of and makes it so good!



The UMi Plus E (Extreme) comes with a 5.5 inch LTPS 1920 x 1080 2.5D Arc screen display from Sharp, 6000 aluminum alloy unibody design and very high screen-to-body ratio with very thin bezel. It comes out in black



The Umi Plus E has under the hood the latest Mediatek 16nm Helio P20 octa-core SoC, which runs by 20% better as CPU and 25% as GPU in comparison with the Helio P10. Helio P20 is the latest creation of Mediatek with 16nm SoC manufactured by TSMC with eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.3GHz, and the new Mali T880 MP2 GPU clocked at 900MHz. The Plus E comes with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via Hybrid SIM microSD card slot (dual-SIM, SIM with microSD). Also is equipped with the enormous number of 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, which I believe is a number that will start little by little to see a lot! Plus E also features 4G + and VoLTE, 802.11abgn dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, USB Type-C and Touch ID 2.1 fingerprint scanner. The new Umi Plus E can decode/encode 4K video! Also since the SoC is manufactured in FinFET 16nm, it will consume less power, without getting hot! Umi has tried from the beginning to have very good relations with Mediatek and now with the release of the Helio P20, shows that these relations are really very good.



The new Umi Plus E features as main camera a 13MP Samsung 3L8 at the back, with 5-elements lens, PDAF auto-focus, two-tone flash, ability to record in 4K video. For selfies, the mobile is equipped with a 5MP GalaxyCore camera.



The new Umi Plus E carries a Sony 4000mAh battery with the feature of Quick Charge PE+ technology. With this feature, you can charge the mobile at 50% in 30 minutes only!



The UMI Plus E is for sure the new flagship of Umi. The specs that carries are more than enough to give this title to the latest creation of the company! At this moment you can find it at Umi site in preorder at US $199.99 for the first 999 pieces and delivery day from December 10th.
