As Samsung Galaxy S4 made a great entry in the market due to the marvelous specification and the new software changes which have been introduced. A similar entry has been made by Umi in the market of Chinese smartphones in the Indian market, it has launched a smartphone named as X2 which is offering a good deal of hardware specifications which can be compared with the elite series of phone like HTC One, Sony Xperia Z and Samsung Galaxy S4. The most astonishing part is the price at which this is offered, the price is 14,000 INR which is really economical taking the phones like Gionee Dream D1 and Lava Xolo X1000 into consideration.

Umi X2 Specifications and Key Features

Starting with the Operating System then currently it will be shipped with Android 4.1.2 Jellybean which will be upgradable to 4.2.2. Now when talking about the power which this phone has, then you can have Mediatech MTK6589 Quad Core processor with its core clocked at 1.2GHz along with 2GB RAM, this is the first Chinese smartphone to offer you 2GB RAM under the price of 15,000 INR. The display size is 5 inches with IPS Retina screen and this retina screen is nothing like that of Apple iPhone in-fact it (441 pixels per inches) is much better than 326 pixels per inches (offer by Apple). Corning Gorilla Glass 2 adds to the robustness of this phone but still take the help of the screen guard for the screen.

It is a Dual SIM phone offering 3G connectivity on both the slots and now when talking about the storage capacity, its internal storage is of 32GB which can be further expanded up to 32 GB with the help of the external micro SD slot. The primary camera to be used is 13MP and no information has been provided whether it is supported by flash or BSI (Backlight Imaging Sensor), the secondary camera of this phone is a VGA camera with 0.3 MP. Finally the battery is also 2500 mAh which is again closer to the spec of Samsung galaxy S4.
