Some weeks ago, we received the news that UMi was going to start a beta test program for the Android N release on the UMi Plus. The goal, of course, was to collect the most feedback possible from the community. Ideally, UMi wants to better understand what users would like to see in the next major update and to find and address the issues of the Beta software.

Now, we received news that a second beta was pushed out, addressing the aforementioned bugs. Moreover, it also introduces a Pro-photo mode, like in the Marshmallow version.

The beta test ROM is only available for installing via Flashtool; UMi claims that experimenting with the system software of your phone may permanently brick it ultimately leading to a voided warranty. Buyer beware. Additionally, retailers are not obligated to deal in warranty with devices, especially those ruined by overwriting the system software by the user.

So, with said, if you are not an experienced user, we recommend you to try it when OTA is pushed.

If interested to experience the first Nougat phone from UMi, you can purchase the UMi Plus from the e-shops below:
