Umi X2 Smartphone Packs 1080p Screen, 12MP Camera

It also sports a quad-core processor and a thin body

A new highly appealing smartphone is set to hit the market in the not-too-distant future, namely the Umi X2, which has just made a photo appearance on the web.

The handset has yet to be officially unveiled to the world, but it should not be too long before that happens, since Umi Mobile has already posted the first official photo with the device on its Weibo page.

The handset packs top-of-the-line hardware specifications, starting with the 4.7 inch 1920 x 1080 pixels 440ppi AH-IPS touchscreen display on the front.

According to the company, the new mobile phone will arrive on shelves with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor packed inside, which might be complemented by 2GB of RAM to ensure maximum performance capabilities.

No specific details on what the CPU handset sports have been provided as of yet, and it remains to be seen whether it is a Samsung Exynos 4412, an Nvidia Tegra 3 or a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip.

According to Umi, however, users will be able to enjoy all this raw power packed inside a smartphone that is only 7.6mm thin, and which sports a slim bezel.

The specs list of the Umi X2 also includes a 12-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with high-end features and capabilities, including support for recording videos in full HD resolution.

The handset is also expected to run under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system when made official, though this has to be confirmed as well.

For the time being, however, Umi Mobile hasn’t announced a specific release date for the X2, nor has it unveiled a price tag.

As GSMInsider notes, the new Umi X2 resembles a lot the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone on the outside, though its 1080p screen and higher-quality camera might make it a bit more appealing than the flagship Android device from the South Korean handset vendor.
