Who says you need to pay up to RM2,000 for a high-end Android phone that packs a brilliant 1080p display and all the good stuffs under the hood? UMI, a phone manufacturer from, yes, you guessed it, China, showed off the UMI X2 device that packs a 5” 1080p display, quad-core processor and a 13MP rear camera, all, for only USD$260 – that’s less than RM900.
Set to be released only in India, the device sounds pretty impressive in text – 1.2GHz MTK6589 quad-core processor from MediaTek, PowerVR SGX544 GPU, 32GB of internal storage expandable via microSD slot, 2GB of RAM, 2,500mAh battery on board, 13MP rear shooter coupled with a 3MP front camera, runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box which is upgradable to Android 4.2, and as with most China phones, it has dual-SIM support as well.
The device is scheduled to be released in India between 15-20 March 2013. With so many affordable smartphones that packs an impressive spec sheet like the Xiao Mi, do you think this will ever make it?
