UMi announces the Hammer S – humbly priced midranger with looks strongly inspired by guess-who
UMi – a China-based manufacturer, most recently known for its incredibly affordable, retina-scanning UMi Iron smartphone – has just teased another model in the making. Dubbed the UMi Hammer S (the reiteration of last year's Hammer), the handset will tote upper-midrange specs, with an unbelievably humble price tag.
So, the teaser claims a 5.5” screen size, touch-type fingerprint scanner, a MediaTek 6735 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space, and a USB Type-C port. As far as appearance goes, the render shows a metal frame, a generous screen-to-body ratio with a near-nonexistent bezel. That aside, GizChina has gotten a hold of some real-life pictures of the device and we have to say – when one lays eyes on the Hammer S's sides and interface, the iPhone 6 tribute becomes quite obvious. You can check the pictures out below.
As far as availability and price goes, UMi promises a $129.99 price-tag and it should launch some time in “Auguest” as per the teaser. Any takers?
