Chinese manufacturer IUNI has just announced a new budget smartphone featuring a flagship level hardware. The feature that is making most of the noise is the ‘Ultrapixel’ camera on the front which is a 4 megapixel sensor with a f/2.0 lens, just like the rear camera on the original HTC One. On the back, the handset comes with a 16 megapixel camera which is more than capable on its own.
Other features of the handset include a 4.7 inch 1080p display, a quad core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage and a 2,200 mAh battery. There’s no clarity on what version of Android it’s running, but the manufacturer mentioned that it comes with a custom ROM called IUNI OS with a relatively “clean” interface. The IUNI U2 also comes in a model which has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, which is priced slightly lower than the aforementioned variant. Unfortunately, both smartphones don’t come with LTE, but that’s a small trade off considering the price tag.
The 32GB variant will cost 1,999 CNY ($323) while the 16GB model with 2GB of RAM will cost 1,799 CNY ($290), indicating that it won’t go heavy on your wallets. The smartphone is currently up for grabs in China through the official IUNI website, so make sure you give it a look if you’re interested.
