Ulefone is a Chinese smartphone maker that is trying to make it in today’s extra competitive mobile market. The company has been offering great bang-for-the-buck Android phones, like the Power model. Well this week Ulefone has unveiled a new wallet-friendly device called the Ulefone U008 Pro.
The Chinese handset maker claims the newcomer is the best priced metal 4G product. So let’s see what the new product is all about. The Ulefone U008 Pro makes a debut into the world with a 5-inch HD display (1,280 x 720 pixel resolution) and a quad-core MediaTek MTK6737 chipset clocked at 1.3GHz.
Ulefone also throws in 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. In the photography department the device takes advantage of an 8MP main camera (interpolated to 13MP) plus a 5MP selfie snapper.
While other devices launched by Ulefone like the Power had a huge 6,050 mAh battery pack, the new U008 Pro features a more modest 3,500 mAh juice pack. The phone ships out with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, but don’t get your hopes up about Nougat.
Ulefone has made efforts to make sure the U008 Pro comes equipped with some unique software feats. The new device rocks a new gaming mode which disables the menu and back keys in order to avoid any mis-touches. Ulefone also bundled the phone with gesture recognizer, float video player, double-finger volume control and smart screenshot mode.
The U008 will be launched with Grey, Black and Pink for an unspecified priced, but given the company’s track record the handset should feature a sub $100 price tag.
