Four Reasons Why UMi Z is Worth Buying

Four Reasons Why UMi Z is Worth Buying

The UMi Z, the first phone to offer the Helio X27 deca-core CPU, is dressed in metal and sports a 5.5-inch display with impressively thin side bezels. The SHARP-made panel has a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels and its colors can be fine-tuned to the users’ liking thanks to the MiraVision technology, provided by MediaTek.

The CPU is split into 10 processor cores with three different clusters – each designed to work under different loads. This way, the phone is easy on the battery consumption when doing light tasks, but can increase the performance when doing demanding tasks — the maximum clock speed of the Helio X27 is 2.6 GHz, whereas its “light load” cluster works at 1.6 GHz. The SoC is coupled with 4GB of Samsung-made RAM for extra multitasking prowess. The internal memory is a fast eMMC 5.1 chip, also made by Samsung, which provides 32GB of storage. If this looks like it’s not enough — the UMi Z accepts microSD cards of up to 256 GB for storage expansion.

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

Both the cameras are 13MP Samsung-made sensors, which essentially means that your selfies will be turning out as good as your landscape shots with the main camera. The back-facing camera uses both laser autofocus and phase detection autofocus for fast and reliable snaps. Additionally, the selfie camera has a soft light to enhance your selfies, while the flash on the back features a quad LED setup for more light and color-accurate shots during the night.


For the first time, UMi released a full metal body, with only the two thin antenna lines in plastic for signal reception. Having a full metal body will mean having a uniformity of colors and materials which is impossible to get when using plastic parts.

Large 3,780mAh battery, just 8.2mm slim

The battery of the UMi Z is made by Sony, and is 3,780mAh, which, combined with the Helio’s promised power-saving capabilities, should have an average user lasting for two days.

Pure Android

Certainly not least on the list, we have the operating system on board. The UMi Z ships with a “pure” Android 6 Marshmallow installed — this means no heavy re-skins and no plethora of system-bogging features. UMi promises that the handset will get patched to Android 7 Nougat in the next few months via an OTA update.

UMi Z  is offering $60 off at Presale

The UMi Z is currently up for pre-sale on a few websites for $219.99. The manufacturer says that shipments will start before the 25th of January. When the phone is officially out, its price will be around $279.99. Of course, shipping and taxes may apply, depending on where you live.
