Last year witnessed some of the top Chinese smartphone makers finding their way to the Indian market. Xiaomi and Meizu seemed to be the most popular ones offering a bunch of high-end handset packed with some cool features.

Following the suit, UMI is marking its debut in India with the handset named UMI Zero, which is presently the slimmest dual-SIM smartphone around. But, that’s not enough to woo users here in India. So, what more do we have? Let’s find out.

  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat

  • 2 GHz Cortex A7 processor

Though the features may not seem to be the best ones available, they are probably good enough to offer you a decent smarphone experience.

Like said earlier, the UMI Zero claims to be the slimmest Dual-SIM smartphone and this might turn out to be one of its USP here in India. The handset sports an aluminium-magnesium alloy metal frame at the front and the back. At just 6.4mm, the phone is indeed quite slim.

Contrary to the traditional norms, the power keys and the volume rocker are placed on the left. No doubt, at first you may probably have a hard time getting used to it. In the SIM-card tray are 2 slots out of which one is a hybrid that lets you use it for a micro-SIM or a micro SD card.

A 5-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution is impressive enough. Talking about the internal specifications, you have a powerful 2GHz MediaTek octa-core processor coupled with a 2GB RAM to make things easier. 16 GB of internal storage is what you get. However, you can further extend it using a micro-SD card.

A 2780 mAh is good enough to let you go on for an entire day on a moderate usage. The handset features power saving modes that limit tasks and apps running in the background, thereby saving a good amount of power consumption. The UMI Zero comes with a fast charging capability, which means the battery can be charged to half its capacity in just 15 minutes.

The UMI Zero is preloaded with Android 4.4 KitKat and has a few additional features. Unfortunately, the handset does not support over-the-air software updates. However, to make you happy, it lets you flash even the third-party ROMs using a one-click installation tool called the RootJoy.

In terms of camera, the phone seems to be making it somewhere at the top of the list. Apart from a 13MP primary camera, the handset also sports an impressive 8PM front-facing snapper. Not many phones currently feature a front-camera that powerful. Both of these cameras can shoot videos at 1080p.

So, in terms of features, the UMI Zero doesn’t disappoint you at all. For all of this an a lot more, you spend somewhere around 20K, which is fair enough.
