Another grassroots-y tale has spawned on Kickstarter. This time, Ubik needs to make an reasonably priced smartphone that cuts out the intermediary, which doesn’t sound all that other from OnePlus’s tale (except for OnePlus were given its get started while not having to head the crowdfunding course).
So what’s just right with the Ubik Uno? S lot. It isn’t superb in anybody space, however we’re promised a forged smartphone at a affordable worth of $280-$299 for the earliest Kickstarter backers (its worth submit-Kickstarter will get started at $345). Here’s what’s underneath the hood:
- MediaTek MT6795 64-bit Octa-Core chipset at 2.2GHz
- 5.5-inch 1080p show with Gorilla Glass 3
- 3GB of RAM, 16GB of inside garage and microSD as much as 64GB
- 20.0MP Sony Exmor RS IMX230, as much as 4K video
- 3,100mAh battery
- Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi AC, NFC, GPS, FM Radio
- Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the field with no customization
For construct, it options an aluminum body, and there’s virtually no bezel to deal with. And that’s approximately thinking about hardware. Like we stated, the telephone itself is not anything unique.
Ubik’s promise, although, is that this is most effective the starting of an ongoing “collaboration” with individuals who select to shop for and give a boost to the Ubik Uno. Community can be at the center of the whole thing they do, and their long run device and hardware construction will all the time be formed by way of the vocal group. You vote you wish to have a smaller show or extra inside garage? They’ll move with the majority and ensure it occurs for the subsequent telephone, and the telephone after that.
That’s a promise, even though, and we’ll have to attend till time comes for the sequel to peer in the event that they apply thru. For now, even though, you can head right here to order the Ubik Uno in case you’re on the lookout for a no frills telephone whose long run isn’t at the mercy of out-of-the-loop company bigwigs. The earliest shipments are scheduled to reach September 2015.
