UMI will launch the UMI X2 quad core android handset with impressive features for a price of Rs. 14000 with free shipping. The UMI X2 will sport a 5 inch screen, 2GB RAM and running on the Android 4.1 OS, and there is more.

The price is just about the  same what Micromax A116 is tagged at. And you get 1920×1080 pixels resolution IPS screen with Gorilla Glass 2 protection, 2GB RAM with a massive 32GB internal storage.

Of the dual cameras the rear one will be with a 13MP resolution with LED flash and the front one will be with a 2MP resolution. The handset will sail on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and users will get upgrade to Android 4.2.

The UMI X2 dual SIM handset supports 3G, 2G, GPS and Wi-Fi. Other features included are 3.5mm jack, FM and micro USB port. The battery is of 2500mAh capacity. The price does look good and you get better features than on MMX A116.

Finally something to compete with Micromax A116, yes the brand is new to Indian users and after sales service may take time, but the specifications are too tempting… for the price.

I got call from UMI and they asked me for the best price possible for this product. Taking clue from the Micromax A116 pricing and considering specifications and after sales support, they finally came down to the best possible price of Rs. 14,000.

Bookings will start within a week or two and deliveries after 15th March. Better to wait for review and initial user inputs before ordering the handset. UMI  Indian is still struggling to setup service centers in India.

    Please Help me.
    Or Give me Some good suggestion about other Brand if this Device iz not working properly…
    Thanx & waiting for your reply. Please Reply me as soon as possible..

    1. Nasir, you can try looking from website or Just visit these sites and search for the model you are looking for.

  2. Dear gogi,

    What is happening in the case of X2 delivery. You know the people and you know the cause of delay. Its your responsibility to disclose here because so many people paid the money because of your review.


    1. Hi Gorilla glass are “scratch resistant” if you check on any other model its mentioned “resistant” it is not mentioned as indestructible or crack proof. Yes the glass is strong up to certain extent, definitely stronger than TFT screens. Depends on the force and many other reason. Having a Gorilla glass phone does not mean that it will survive all the drops.

  3. Hi
    I had placed the Order for UMI X2 on 20May, UMI India will also provide flip leather Cover for UMI X2, with Box packing. If they will not provide leather Cover case
    But their Web site UMI X1 leather Cover is available it will also suite for X2 case? Pl update

  4. Recently umi mobile india has published a list of service centers and I have visited one mentioned at the top of the list(Apace solution, Guwahati, Assam). But their reaction was very surprising as they said they did not know that there is a mobile brand called umi!!!!!! Also refuses any official link with umi mobiles(if such a brand exists!).

  5. This phone is truly f****ed off. It doesn’t seems to be getting launched by any means in India. I have been religiously tried in every possible ways. Its a pain in my ***. Just forgot it and thought its better to buy canvas 3. Then finally got it from achinaseller .com. It priced a 1000 bucks extra but that makes sense. As I got freebies like memory card 32 gb, pouch n extra battery. And the 2 Indian sites are just fake sites guys so leave chasing on them.

  6. Sorry Gogi, as i haven’t followed your facebook updates. Rather bothering you, I might have gone through the below URL :).
    Just added for the people like me who might have book-marked this url in order to get this review updates.
    I am still waiting for the final consumer version review as there is lot i have understood from the above review scores (was the touch sensitivity/ performance).

    1. this is out of stock,

      Gogi, please advise on X2 UMI, when will you going to reviewing for user handset as you have already reviewed for prototype one.

    Thank you for giving us your feedback soon because I am afraid it will be out of stock like other brands 😛

  10. Dear Gogi,
    Facebook page of UMI india says that you have received review pieces of UMI mobiles but from your side no any confirmation about receiving the same.pls do any comments.

  11. hi gogi,

    Please give an overview of UMI X2 phone U received before the review. What is its actual specification.

  12. Please consider following points in your review.
    1. Does this phone support hands free call when an audio cable from 3.5 mm jack is connected to car’s audio system. My previous experience is like you are able to hear other person on car’s audio system but he is not able to hear because mic gets disconnected as soon as 3.5mm audio jack is connected with external source and is only compatible to the hands free provided with the handset. Hope UMI has addressed this issue.

    2. Music audio quality as compared to branded handsets and type of headphones like ear buds or regular headsets.

  13. Hi,
    Wanna Know whether Umi mobile has LED Indicator lights to get app notifications,missed call alerts and similar notifications?

  14. Congrats Gogi sir, u have received ur review unit, make review soon but take ur time.

  15. Hi Gogi,

    UMI FB confirms that you have received X2. We are waiting for the review.
    When can we see the post?

  16. Finally,some good news on you have receiving the tracking code. Waiting eagerly for the review and the verdict. Hip Hip Hurray…!!!!!
