UMi Touch: The $100 Challenger

Smartphones that are as powerful as they are affordable are growing increasingly commonplace. The boundaries are being pushed farther and farther and the UMi Touch intends to create a disruption like never before by offering extremely competitive specifications for $100.

What would $100 get you? Let’s take a look at the specifications:

  • MediaTek MT 6753 octa-core Processor
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 16 GB Internal Memory
  • 5.5 inches screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080
  • A 13 MP primary camera and a 5 MP secondary camera
  • 4000 mAh battery

While nothing about it could make it go up against the flagships of 2016, this is yet another sign that a good phone can be something you can afford. The battery especially deserves special attention as polls everywhere show that improved battery backup is what all smartphone users want from the next generation of phones. While increasing the capacity is a blunt approach, it is still an effective one and that battery is definitely worthy of appreciation. Also meriting respect is the fact that it ships with Android Marshmallow, something that pretty much no other phone at this price point does. Managing to also pack a fingerprint scanner and a full metal design, this phone sure gives you everything that you could possibly ask for.


Launching in March at $170, UMi has a “Partner Program” that will last from 22nd January to 17th February. Registering will land you a coupon code which you can then enter when ordering the phone once 17th February is here. The catch is that only the first 1000 customers will be able to buy the phone for $100 with the coupon code. Following that, it’ll return to costing $170 which is still a damn good deal for what’s on offer. The phones are expected to start shipping from March 20.
