If you are tired of pressing the power button and then swiping the touch screen, or keying in passwords, or drawing patterns so as to unlock your mobile phone. If you want to avoid any of these tedious steps but not to spend as much as an iPhone 6 or Plus costs. You may have a glance at Ulefone Be Touch 2, a Chinese flagship packing a fingerprint scanner.
You are not mistaken. The fingerprint scanner is integrated into the sunken round home button on the front of Ulefone Be touch 2 , instead of a back-borne one as you see on Huawei Mate 7. With this, you can enter your home screen by just pressing the home key and holding a tiny little while. You don’t even have to pick up your phone when it’s on the desk. At most, the scanner recognizes 5 fingerprint IDs you’ve recorded, which means in different situations, you can choose to use the finger you feel most comfortable.
Design-wise, Ulefone Be Touch 2 flaunts an allover piece of 2.5D glass on its face and a magnesium-aluminum alloy frame. The glass was coated with some special material to make it less vulnerable to sweat and oil stains . On the rear side, there is a removable plastic battery cover, with extra denim-look fabric protective cases for extra money. The phone has both space grey and silk white versions, while there are beige, blue and pink options for the fabric cases.
The 5.5-inch display of the Be Touch 2 has a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels, representing a pixel density of 401 per inch. Camera solutions are 5MP and 13MP for front and rear, respectively. The back camera sports an IMX214 sensor, which, Ulefone believes, is better debugged than on other Chinese phones. And the front camera can co-work with a front-facing flash for selfie in dark lights.
As expected, the Be Touch 2 will come with the pure Android 5.1 operating system. A 64-bit 8-core CPU works as the new Ulefone stuff’s powerhouse, namely MTK6752, with a clock speed of 1.7GHz. By the way, the newer MTK6753 processor, as adopted on Meizu M2 Note, is actually running at 1.3Ghz, an under-clock version of MTK6572 instead of enhanced. Other components of Ulefone be touch 2 include a 3050mAh solid-state polymer battery, 3GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB storage which is expandable to 64GB.
Ulefone didn’t reveal more about its stunning pricing strategy, just saying that the Be Touch 2 will be sold for exactly USD179.99 in a certain period of time. Presently, phones with worse hardware specifications are sold for about USD230, such as the Meizu M1 Note.
