Ulefone X and Ulefone Armor X are two interesting smartphones that cost less than 1000 zlotys. However, they have good components, including an induction coil and NFC.
Two new Ulefone smartphones – Ulefone X and Ulefone Armor X debuted in Poland. One of them has been equipped with a 5.85-inch bezraq screen, which, along with the components used, will work well in everyday tasks. Ulefone Armor X is a model designed for use in extreme outdoor conditions. Both models have been priced sensibly, so it is worth knowing them a bit closer.
Ulefone X paper technical specification can make an impression on some people – after all, we have 4 GB RAM, which works with an 8-core processor with a good clock speed . The mentioned processor is part of the SoT MediaTek helio P23 system , and therefore the transient chipset – between the P20 helium and the more powerful P25 helium, although the newer graphics are used in the case of the Oukitel K10. In practice, however, it does not matter which SoC is hidden in your device, because they offer similar performance. MediaTek helio P23 is:
- eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores with reduced 2.0GHz clock speed
- 16-nanometer FinFET process
- ARM Mali-G71MP2 graphics chip
- support for LPDDR4X RAM
During everyday use, this set should perform properly and ensure smooth operation of Google Android 8.1 Oreo. 64 GB of internal memory has been reserved for all kinds of data (51 GB for the user), which can be expanded to 256 GB using a memory card. The battery capacity of 3300 mAh is responsible for energy efficiency, which according to the press release is to provide up to 290 hours of operation of the device or: 10 hours of talks, 20 hours of listening to music or 5 hours of watching movies. In the case of a battery, it must be mentioned that the Qi wireless charging technology was used. This is great news for all lovers of this solution. This standard means that you can use any wireless charger as they support this solution. The smartphone uses a display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and HD + resolution (1512 x 720 pixels). Of course, there was an indentation, which is very popular. A set of two sensors – 16 MP and 5 MP – is mounted on the rear panel. Their task is to enable the user, inter alia, to blur the background and thus to obtain a bokeh effect. It is worth paying attention to one detail – camera lenses, along with the LED illuminating light are arranged on a vertical island and the appearance refer to the Apple smartphone. The front camera has 16MP. The sales kit includes the UF002 wireless charger. Ulefone X is available in Poland, for PLN 999. You can buy it in two color versions: black or white.
Ulefone Armor X
It's worth mentioning one important issue at the very beginning, namely water tightness. Ulefone Armor X has the IP68 certificate , which means that it does not scare dust and water – it can withstand up to 1.5 hours of immersion in water with a depth of up to one and a half meters, or 24 hours … in concrete. The TPU housing uses glass fiber, reinforced polycarbonate, as well as metal and Corning Gorilla Glass . The smartphone is also characterized by high resistance to different temperatures. It can work both in minus 40 degrees Celsius and in 80-degree heat. For smooth operation of the Ulefone Armor X it is responsible MediaTek MT6739 and therefore SoC composed of a CPU which four cores are based on ARM architecture Cortex-A53 and characterized by timing level of up to 1.5GHz. The graphics are answered by PowerVR Rouge GE8100, working with 2GB of RAM. This kit should behave decently in everyday use. Significant slowdowns should not occur, and if RAM management is appropriate, applications from memory should be restored at an acceptable rate. Ulefone in this model offers a screen with a diagonal of 5.5 "and HD + resolution (1440 x 720 pixels). This is the IPS matrix. The parameters of the screen are therefore decent and thus enable comfortable viewing of websites and use of the telephone. The rest of the specification is as follows :
- Android 8.1 Oreo
- 16GB of built-in memory + microSD reader
- main camera 13 MP and 5 MP
- front camera 8 MP
- fingerprint reader
- 5500 mAh battery with wireless charging
- AW8736 audio system
- face unlock
- NFC and the possibility of using two SIM cards, with LTE support, for both of them
In Poland, Ulefone Armor X is available, at a price of PLN 849. source: CK MEDIATOR
