UMI, is one of those manufacturers when coming out with a new smartphone, we know for sure that it’s going to have something special prepared. Smartphones are generally characterized by good internal specifications along with a good user experience and overall value of the phone which differentiates itself from the rest of the competition. We saw something similar in the UMI Iron and now the Iron series is renewed with the UMI Iron Pro, one of the most secure readily available smartphones.
The UMI Iron Pro was introduced a couple of months ago and since then, it was creating a lot of buzz in the community. Who would require a Triple Authentication system anyway?
Iron Pro Specifications
The UMI Iron Pro has a very efficient and eye-pleasing design, and is one of the phones that does not waste screen size or RAM.
The Display on the UMI Iron Pro is a 5.5-Inch Full HD 1920×1080 Resolution display with a pixel dencity of 403 PPI (Pixels Per Inch). Has 3-GB RAM, and 16-GB Internal Storage and also sports a Micro-SD Card slot for expansion upto 64-GB via a Micro-SD Card, which is very rarely seen in smartphones in this price range.
The UMI Iron Pro has a 13-MP Sony IMX214 Camera on the back, and an Omnivision OV8858 8-MP camera on the front for sharp and crisp selfies. The UMI Iron Pro has 4G/LTE support on various bands to work all around the world, a USB Type-C port, which is the latest industry standard for various smartphones as well as laptops.
The Umi Iron Pro has an always-on fingerprint reader on the rear of the phone. All of this is powered by an Eight-Core (Octa-Core) MediaTek MTK6573 Processor which is clocked in at 1.3-GHz, and Mali T720 GPU, and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with very few customizations done to the software, to give the multi-level security that they are promising.
What is Triple Authentication?
The UMI Iron Pro combines three different Technologies to maximize safety of the user and their data; the classic voice recognition and fingerprint scanning, combined with the new Iris Scanner. This authentication factors can be used to restrict or access to the device for some applications. Which is very unique, however major Chinese UI’s like MIUI has been doing this for a while now, but not in this fashion which is very unique.
The Price of the UMI Iron Pro is around $180 USD, an approximate price. However, it makes a good value at under $200 for the new types of security it offers when compared to other smartphone manufacturers.
