UBIK UNO budget-friendly Android flagship

This lower-cost alternative to the leading flagships could reach the US in about two months, once its Kickstarter funding campaign completes successfully.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
