IUNI U2: A $320 (INR 20K) Phone with Snapdragon 800, 3 GB RAM and 16MP Camera

IUNI, a spin-off brand of China's Gionee (known for making the current world's thinnest Smartphone), is preparing a very interesting handset IUNI U2 which has a 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3GB RAM, and a 4.7-inch 1080p display with a pixel density of 469PPI inside.

But that's not all. Reportedly, IUNI wanted to make the best single-handed metal-clad phone possible, so it machined a 0.4 inch (10.2mm) thick body that's 2.56 inches (65mm) wide and 5.38 inches (136.9mm) tall. There is a 10-degree fold at the phone's top and bottom, and the chamfer has a shiny "3D polish".

Perhaps the most interesting part about the IUNI U2, aside from its clean design, handy size, and powerful hardware, are the cameras. At the back, you have a 16 megapixel shooter with a f/2.2 aperture that is capable of recording 1080p videos in a full 60 fps frame rate. Flip it over and you will be greeted by a 4 megapixel f/2.0 camera. Don't let that number fool you, however, since the camera is actually an UltraPixel, the same technology being brandished by the HTC One, and soon the New HTC One. Perfect for those selfies.

The IUNI U2 will run on its own IUNI OS based on Android 4.3. IUNI say their OS is devoid of bloatware and clutter making it a fast and streamlined system.

Chinese E-commerce site Jingdong Mall will be selling the IUNI U2, the 32GB version with 3GB of RAM is just CN¥1, 999 (about $320) unsubsidized, whereas the 16GB version with 2GB RAM is just CN¥1, 799 (about $290). International sales yet unknown.
