Chinese smartphone manufacturer UMi Digi has all of its hopes pinned on its latest flagship phone UMi Touch. The device is scheduled to go on sale on Feb 18 and UMi claims that it would be the first user defined smartphone.
UMi has said that the biggest problem with the Chinese smartphones is stagnancy and lack of development and they have said that they will tackle this issue with custom ROMs and Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the UMi Touch. The device will reportedly come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow has brought some improvements in the permission controls and has made Android more refined and polished with the help of more initiative controls. But the improvements and changes can’t be termed revolutionary.
Reports suggest that the UMi Touch will run on stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but more options of custom ROMs will be available to the users if they choose to use other custom ROMs. A number of optional custom ROMs including Flyme based ROM, VIBE UI, MyUI, 360OS and WP8 are expected to be made available to the users. Though we don’t expect dual-OS; but several User Interfaces will be made available.
The UMi Touch will go on pre-sale on Feb 18th at a discount of $70 which effectively brings down the price of the device to $109.99. The device will be sold through the official UMi website.
