The Ubik Uno phone has arrived on Kickstarter and promises top of the line hardware for entry level cost. This is a market currently populated by Oneplus and their current flagship phone (Oneplus One). Currently the Kickstarter has rewards levels for US$280 (No longer available) for the Ubik Uno, US$299 (935 left) for the Ubik Uno, US$320 latecomer’s reward for the phone, US$890 for a 3 pack and US$2990 for 10 devices.
The Ubik Uno promises lightning fast processing and a light price tag. The low-cost market is ever expanding and a phone that is, at most, half the cost of comparable flagships should send some kind of shock through the current market. Oneplus’ #hype event is scheduled for Monday the 27th of July may just take the wind out of the Ubik Uno’s sails, so to speak. Have a look at Ubik’s Kickstarter video below.
The specifications include stock android, 64 bit processor, 3 GB or RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 3100 mAh battery and a 20 MP camera. All of this fits in a 5.5″ bezel-less screen and metal chassis. Have a look at the comparison with the iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4 below.
Do you think the Ubik Uno is a real competitor in the Android ecosystem? The phone is fighting a battle here with the Oneplus One, will Monday 27th Oneplus Two event hinder the adoption of the Ubik Uno?
Do you like minimal bezels? Could you sacrifice thickness for battery? We’d like to know your ideas on the ultimate smartphone.
