Starmobile unveiled the UP Mini, a very budget friendly smartphone with decent specifications.The Starmobile UP Mini was revealed alongside Starmobile UP Lite. Based on their names, I was expecting that this is beeifer variant so I’m kinda confused why the Lite version has better hardware than the Mini. Anyway, they are mostly the same and the differences are just the RAM, storage, and battery to name a few.

Like its sibling, the UP Mini features message encrytion for better privacy and camera selfie guide for even better selfies and groupies (though the VGA camera is kinda meh).
