Thanks Drogoo

UMI are soon going to release their next model, the UMI Iron.
According to the leaked picture it has an alloy unibody and Dual LED on the back.

There are unfortunately still not many infos or specifications out yet of this device, but it should soon come.
Hopefully it will get a larger and better battery

UPDATE more info leaked:
UMI IRON, Octa-core MT6795 with 2K display?? Last friday UMI leaked a new phone called IRON.
From the photo we can see that the device appears to be a unibody alloy phone, with dual LED flash.
Again UMI facebook just post a picture showing Android 5.1, Octa-core. And it show half spec of CPU MT67???
Rumor said it might be the MT6795 that could support 2K video display!
If it could be released in time this could be the first MT6795 phone by far!


- 5.5 Inch Screen, 2K???
- MT6795 Octa Core???
- 3GB RAM + 16GB ROM
- 13 MP Rearcamera + 5 MP Frontcamera
- Android 5.1 OS

From yesterdays leak on UMI facebook tells us that the IRON has built-in 25MW directpath from Texas Instrument, in order to have the best headphone Hi-Fi audio.

Feature of the 25MW directpath

- Great noise cancelation, Omnibearing noise suppression (including active click and pop/ system noise pickup between audio source and the headphone amplifier/ ground lop noise/ power supply noise)
- Prevent Acoustic Shock
- SAVE! Short-Circuit and Thermal-Overload Protection
- Excellent Low Frequency Fidelity

So the sound quality should be extraordinary and super with headphones.

On the UMI Facebook they also leaked a picture https://www.facebook.com/umicommunit...7080594791653/
showing some specs about the camera.

Front camera is on 8mp with LED flash light. So selfies should be really good, also in the dark.
The rear camera is a 13mp Sony IMX214 camera, so this should also be very nice.

More over it should come with Android 5.1, a Mediatek octacore chipset and 3GB RAM. The body should be of metal and about 7.9mm thin.



Update:
Finally we know for sure that UMI IRON is a 5.5 inch smartphone using LTPS display which provides faster speed, higher resolution and brighter light on the screen compared with other regular LCD display.

What I don't get is the screen. How exactly does a FHD LTPS screen compare to Gorilla Glass in terms of durability? Will a tempered glass protector hinder this type of panel in any way? Maybe I'm thinking about this the wrong way. It does look nice tho.

Also how does one contact Umi? I can't seem to find an email address for sales/marketing/customer service anywhere.

You should not compare these 2 things like that.
FHD LTPS is just that it is Full HD resolution with Low-temperature polycrystalline silicon - that has nothing to do with the glass on top.

Gorilla Glass is just the glass on top, that has nothing to do with if the screen is HD or FHD.

But I can say that the screen is VERY sharp, good colors and very bright. The glass on top, I am unsure of what type it is. Could be normal glass, but with the Magic Glass (tempered glass protection) on top your very well protected, and if you drop the phone nothing should happen to the screen.

Thanks for the clarification. Everything I read online made me second guess myself. I would definitely like to give one a try.

Any plans on doing a follow up video after using this for a day or two?

In USA you use a lot of different bands, the carriers are not using the same ones for LTE. So I can't really answer you on that. You need to check on http://willmyphonework.net and then the phone.

The UMI IRON supports - Band: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz, WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz, FDD-LTE B1/B3/B7/B8 (1800/2100/2600)

But it looks like that most US carriers (if not all) are using other LTE bands, so LTE will generally not work in the US for this phone. Only 3G it seems.
