Umi Z: a new member to the super mid-range at a good price

Umi Z 1

The chinese manufacturer Umi presented already several days ago a smartphone with specs that more of one will like a really cost effective price. The phone in question is the Umi Z, a phablet with a body completely of aluminum, a few cameras that on paper are going well and a battery that we can consider generous.

For the specifications we could put this terminal within the medium to high range, with a stylish design, but today it comes out of the box with Android Marshmallow, although on the website they promise that it will update via OTA to Nougat. Either way, we know a little bit more about this Umi Z.

Possibly the most of us because we are accustomed to seeing mobile relatively inexpensive with a design stylish enough to pass for a terminal considerably more expensive.

This Umi Z could be in that group of phones quietly thanks to its aluminium body.

the construction of The Umi Z appears, as seen in the images, quite solid, in addition to the color gold or silver (according to choice), gives it that elegant touch that you can fall in love at first sight. Although it can be seen that the sensor protrudes something, leaving the protective glass a both exposed to scratches.

In regards to the front we see that the splices are within normal range in terms of measurements, neither very large nor very small. In the lower part of the front we can see its sensor footprint, that seems to be slightly sunken, and that the manufacturer boasts that you can unlock the terminal in 0.1 seconds.

Good specs led by a battery with large capacity
