Every trade show has some gems. This year at MWC, one of the most impressive is from Ulefone, with its new T2 Pro smartphone. The device, to be released in July, is an unexpected pleasure from the show.
Which makes the phone interesting, compared to other devices on the show floor, is the design. Ulefone lists it as a 6.7-inch device, with a 2160x1080 (19: 9) screen, but using a combination of edge-to-edge screens, notches for front-facing cameras, and fingerprint sensors at the bottom of the screen, with another Pro carrier. Finally what we see is the future, moving closer to 100% of the front display facing real estate. We will obviously be above 90% with this kind of device.
I will dare and say this is what almost all smartphone vendors will do, and soon. Takik extend the right screen to the top of the device, and keep the camera in the same place (unlike Mi MIX). Having a fingerprint sensor on the screen (or back) will remove almost all the lower bezel. Until the camera can also be screened, this is how the phone will go. Ulefone T2 Pro is the second device we now know with fingerprint sensors on screen, next to devices created by Vivo, and we confirm that Synaptics sensors are in use.
This device has the 'first' specification, since it was exhibited as the first implementation of the Media70 P1 processor. Mediatek has just announced P60 at Mobile World Congress, so this device is basically a preannouncing SoC. We can not get specific details about it, but expect to be implementing Armex Cortex A73 / A53 4x4, with Mali G72 in some form, possibly in the 12FFC TSMC process. We are waiting for information from Ulefone. We try to compare it, but the software is very early.
Although the screen is very large, because someone who uses a 6-inch display device every day, it does not feel different. The demo unit has a plastic curved circle, but we are told that the final unit will curl the glass. The software on the super buggy unit and barely boot, hit the chrome, shows how early this device's cycle. We are told that there will be some software adjustments to take into account its notch, as the OS clearly ignores it at this time. The rounded corners also cause some overlapping screens, which should be optimized.
So even though the backdrop is damaged (apparently some journalists at the beginning of the week accidentally dropped it?) The device feels premium. Along with the display, we are told will deliver 8 GB memory, 128 GB storage, and 5000 mAh battery. The latter is a bit skeptical, since the phone is very light - lighter than expected at 5000 mAh. It could be a demo unit to have a smaller battery, but if it's a final device, then it's a very good design.
Here's what I'm saying is probably not possible. Ulefone mainly operates in China as one of the secondary smartphone brands, but we are told that they are the rarest to branched into Europe, through retailers. We are told that the estimated pricing for this unit is estimated at $ 380, though it may be confusing at wholesale prices and excluding taxes. Assuming P70 is a good and highly optimized SoC, Pro T2 can easily be a very good smartphone to use.
We do not give rewards at this event, but this will be something close to an unexpected surprise. I hope Ulefone can deliver it.
