UMi Zero 2 features 2K screen, deca-core CPU, 4GB RAM and a dual camera setup all priced under $300

UMi Zero 2 features 2K screen, deca-core CPU, 4GB RAM and a dual camera setup all priced under $300
Back in July, we told you about the UMi Zero 2, being produced by yet another small Chinese smartphone manufacturer. Like the YotaPhone, this handset featured a second E-ink display on the back of the unit. Or at least it did during the summer. By October, when UMi teased the Zero 2, the second screen had gone MIA and was replaced by a rich looking leather back.

Today, we received the latest specs for the UMi Zero 2, and it will now be released in the second quarter of next year with a Helio X20 chipset from MediaTek under the hood. That means that the device will offer a deca-core CPU. The phone will be equipped with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a 565ppi pixel density. The screen, by the way, is being produced by Samsung.

The UMi Zero 2 is obviously sporting high-end specs. It will have 4GB of RAM inside, along with 64GB of native storage. The phone is equipped with a dual camera setup on back, in order to offer certain Lytro-like features. You should be able to change the focal point of a picture after it has been processed on the handset.

UMi says that the Zero 2 will be priced at an affordable $299, which would seem to represent a pretty good value. That is, as long as the company doesn't change the specs and the design again.
