While most Android-powered flagships from the big names in the smartphone industry are far from affordable, small and not-so-small outsiders try their luck by launching powerful handsets with premium looks that almost anyone should afford. Last such device to show up is UBIK UNO, a handset that has been built packing "a beautiful design, great display, solid performance and unbeatable price."

UBIK UNO has the following highlights:

  • Processor:  2.2 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6795 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB
  • Display: 5.5-inch multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 20 MP back with Sony IMX230 sensor
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Operating system: stock Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • Battery: 3100 mAh

This handset is built using a single-piece aluminum frame and has ultra-slim bezels. While the retail price announced is $345 USD, UBIK UNO is currently the subject of a Kickstarter project and early backers can get it for $299 USD. The first 250 units will go to early backers who pledged $280 USD or more while shipments will begin in September.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
