4. The sound from the earspeaker is too loud set when on maxinum

Ulefone Paris 5 Inch HD, MTK6753 - a iPhone 6 and Meizu MX4 hybrid?



Ulefone Paris Design Revealed: A hybrid of iPhone 6 and Meizu MX4
I now got some real photos of the Ulefone Paris, which shows that the 5-inch Ulefone device will look like a hybrid between the iPhone 6 and Meizu MX4.

You can almost say it is a mini Ulefone Be Touch 2 just with the iPhone-6 push home button changed into a touch button as also seen on the Meizu MX4 and M1 Note. The circular button will also have light as on the Meizu phones when it is touched. And there will actually be capacitive menu and back buttons with light, left and right to the home key but they are invisible when not used.

The Ulefone Paris also inherited the 2.5D glass and metal frame from Ulefone Be Touch and Be Touch 2. And the general design is not very different, just smaller, and maybe thinner.


Ulefone's next 5-inch device will be called “Paris”

Days ago Ulefone asked their users on Facebook to help name their next 5-inch device between Ulefone Lite and Air. But a banner appeared yesterday on their official site showing that there will come a new phone named Ulefone Paris. The company confirmed that the two actions referred to the same device.

It’s not clear why the naming should change all in a sudden. But it seems to us that the company wants to add the phone some flavor of art derived from the New Wave. The banner reveals the launch time will be next month and the place, well, I don’t think will really be under the Eiffel tower.
According to early news, the specs of Ulefone Paris will include 5-inch HD display, and MTK6753 chipset. But it’s not sure if there will be change on these features, too.

Totally, the next 1 month or so, it is expected to see 3 new products from Ulefone, including the 6200mAh-battery device Ulefone Power and the Smartwatch Ulefone Uwear, beside the Ulefone Paris as before mentioned. (Source: All infos and pictures from Ulefone.com)

DOOGEE F3 Pro – Double-sided Gorilla Glass and 3GB RAM






The F3 looks a lot like the Galaxy S6, but seems different enough to not be called a clone. Specifications of the phone include a 5-inch HD display, the new MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a 2200mAh battery. Cameras, or at least the 13 mega-pixel main camera on the rear, will be a Samsung unit — a far cry from the usual IMX214 that you get to see.

Pricing is set at US$149, which although isn’t crazy impressive, does sound good for a phone with a decent set of specs and more importantly, good build quality, which we hope will be the case with the Doogee F3. Surprisingly, there’s no mention of a fingerprint scanner which seems to have become staple for Chinese phones. (Source: http://www.gizchina.com/2015/06/26/doogee-f3-launch-specs)

Highlights
- 5.0 inch FHD IPS OGS 2.5 d Corning Gorilla glass screen, 1920 * 1080 pixel
- MTK6753 64 bit octa core
- 3 GB RAM + 16 GB ROM
- 13MP 8MP main camera + front camera

UMI ZERO 2 will get dual-screen? (Samsung/EPD) 5.2 inch, MTK6752, Android 5.1, 4G LTE

(Picture source http://www.facebook.com/umizero2)

On UMI ZERO 2's facebook page we can now see a picture showing “Duplex Life, the best from UMI”. What does duplex life mean? A dual-screen phone? I remember the first dual-screen phone was from Yota phone2, where one screen is made by Samsung and the back side has an EPD screen.

The EPD screen is using E ink technology. If you look at Kindle from Amazon, then you will know how the screen looks like. The thing with this screen is that it will be perfectly readable even in the brightest sunshine: Fiction, Facebook, Twitter, news, RSS-feeds, blogs, mail, messaging etc.

All in all, it’s likely that UMI ZERO 2 going to be the world’s second dual-screen smartphone made with EPD. And it seems that UMI will continue with a SAMSUNG display after the first UMI ZERO. The official retail price is still unknown, but could get high. Release is set to September 2015 on http://www.efox-shop.com


Specifications (still unconfirmed)
- MTK6752 SoC 1.7GHz Octa-core
- Mali-T760 GPU
- 13 megapixel rear / 8 megapixel front
- 5.2 inch Full HD 1080p Samung display
- 3GB RAM / 16GB ROM
- Support for 4G LTE
- Support microSD card & OTG
