Looks like smartphone manufacturer, Ulefone is stepping beyond OEMs. They are releasing a smartphone of their very own design and build, the Ulefone Be Pro.
The phone will be equipped with a 64-bit quad core chipset, MT6732, based on the ARM Cortex-A53 processor, with CPU clocked at 1.5GHz. The GPU included with the said chipset is the ARM Mali-T760 clocked at 695MHz based on cutting edge Midgard architecture.
This chipset quite the powerful one and is making waves with benchmarking results. See how the chipset fares against the year-old MT6582.
stunning quad band WCDMA (850/900/1900/2100), and quad band FDD-LTE with support for Bands 1/3/7/20 or 2100/1800/2600/800 MHz
Ulefone’s Be Pro will feature a 5.5 inch screen with a 720p resolution display. No doubt, the screen will still deliver good quality images while still keeping the power consumption at an acceptable level.
The memory spec set is a healthy 2GB for RAM and 16GB for internal storage, which can be further upgraded via microSD card. Network connectivity extends from GSM, a stunning quad band WCDMA (850/900/1900/2100), and quad band FDD-LTE with support for Bands 1/3/7/20 or 2100/1800/2600/800 MHz.
Camera specs are reported as 13.0MP and 8.0MP for the rear and front cameras respectively. The 4G phone will be powered by a 2600mAH battery which can be found beneath an optional sandstone textured back cover.
Ulefone has indicated that a Lollipop update is right around the corner, scheduled to be released by February. The Be Pro will be running Android 4.4 upon purchase.
Spec-wise, the phone is undoubtedly attractive, and being the company’s first non-OEM flagship model, it is doubtful Ulefone would risk faking specs.
