UMi Z Design

Full Metal unibody to please your eyes and hands

For the first time ever, UMi released a full metal body crafted with Nano Injection Molding technology, with only the two thin antenna lines covered by plastic for signal reception, just like the most famous flagships on the market. Having a full metal body will mean having a uniformity of colors and materials that is impossible to get when using plastic parts, giving sensations pleasing the eye and the hand, like a flagship should do.

Helio X27 MTK’s 2017 Deca-Core flagship processor

UMi Z is packed with Mediatek Helio X27. This is not just an upgrade version over Helio X25. This is MTK’s 2017 Deca-Core flagship processor clocked at 2.6Ghz, while Snapdragon MSM8996 at 2.4Ghz, SAMSUNG Exynos 8890 at 2.4 and Apple A9 is at 1.85Ghz .

The MTK Helio X27 features 2.6 GHz with Mali-T880 MP4 875MHz runs even the most demanding apps and games with enhanced performance. Thanks to the 4GB of RAM, the UMi Z can juggle with countless tasks without slowing down. The internal storage of up to 256GB means running out of space is a thing of the past. We took no shortcuts on our way to a device that performs as well in practice as in benchmarks.

3780 mAh big battery for a day and beyond usage at just 8.2mm slim

Along with the addition of the MTK Helio X27, UMi has decided to include a sizeable upgrade in the battery department. The UMi Z sports a non-removable 3,780mAh battery, which is still a 13% increase from the 4,000mAh unit used in Helio P10 devices in terms of performance due to the super power consumption optimized by Helio X27. Of course, the UMi Z also supports PE+ Quick Charge technology, which will get you enough power for the day with just 30 minutes on the charger.

Dual ISP dual mode 13MP Camera delivers top-tier photo and video capture.

The cameras are interesting parts of this phone. It will feature a 13MP Samsung S5K3L8 front softlight camera. When shooting in low-light conditions, the 13MP front sensor will intelligently combine pixels to gather more light together with the softlight LED and reduce noise, which will result in clearer, more colorful photos in most conditions.

A 13MP Samsung S5K3L8 as the rear camera will feature both PDAF focus technology and Laser Focusing which is placed right next to the main camera. The Quad-Led light (same as at iPhone 7) will ensure that your photo will not be blurry anymore even in any situation

UMi Z Pricing and Availability

The UMi Z presale will start on Thursday, December 26th in the Europe time, starting from $279.99.
