The carefully polished stainless steel metal frame of the UMi ROME X is extremely lightweight and rugged at the same time. Exquisite design of ultra-narrow border around the phone are like works of art! High light chamfering, 16 steps CNC process technology, 7.9mm thickness and other high-end processes make the UMi ROME X possible.

The glass covering the panel is of the 2.5D curved type, a detail which will allow users to have a good visual experience, even from difficult angles. Also, the HD technology helps to display vivid colors, and to save battery power, which is extremely important for most users.
Underneath the screen, UMi has packed a quad-core MediaTek MTK6580 processor, coupled with 1GB RAM. Considering the 720p resolution, UMi Rome X should perform well for common tasks. This device will also incorporate 8GB of built-in storage (expandable through microSD cards).
