Shenzhen - UMi is glad to communicate that a deal with Mediatek has been signed for the usage of the Helio P20 on their next smartphone UMi Plus Extreme version.

During this first part of the year, we have seen how Helio P10 has been a popular choice among the biggest brands, like Sony Xperia XA, HTC A9S, Oppo R9 and P9 PLUS, Meizu M3 Note, Meizu MAX and others.
In particular  Oppo R9 and R9 PLUS have been absolute bestsellers in China this year. As for UMi a China smartphone maker maining target to Europe market, UMi Super and UMi Plus got success abroad.

Now, MTK is releasing the successor of the P10, the Helio P20, with an increase in frequency on the 8 Cortex A53 cores. The performance cluster is now clocked in at 2.3GHz instead of 2.0, with a 20% higher performance. On the GPU side, the Mali T860MP2 has been upgraded to a T880MP2 and clocks have been raised 200MHz to 900MHz, for a 25% upgrade over P10.

P20 is a very recent SoC and for UMi it was possible to adopt it so early because the company has earned trust and confidence from MTK thanks to the quality of their last products, and therefore got  chosen to be the first brand launching a phone with Helio P20,  which we know has the codename of UMi Plus Extreme.

UMi Plus extreme version will be release around November while UMi Plus the standard version is currently available for pre-order at their website for 179.99USD here
