Ulefone is one of the few manufacturers who has a strong grip in the lower part of the smartphone pyramid. While I’m not a big fan of the brand, the likes of the Ulefone Be Touch 2, Ulefone Power, Ulefone Vienna and Ulefone Metal and are all good handsets. There has been a steady improvement in the build quality of their phones but their software still leaves a lot to be desired.
Like all other manufacturers, Ulefone is already making plans for next year. And it appears they will be continuing their trend of offering flagship level specs at a low-price judging from the features and price of one their upcoming device, the Ulefone Gemini Pro.
The Ulefone Gemini Pro is expected to launch with a 5.5-inch display, 4GB of RAM and a generous 128GB of storage (we hope it’s UFS 2.0 though). It actually doesn’t end there. The Gemini Pro will also be sporting dual 13MP rear cameras in a design similar to that of the iPhone 7 Plus and another 13MP sensor in front, making it a total of three 13MP cameras.
Ulefone Gemini Pro Specs
- Android 7.0 Nougat
- Dual SIM, Dual Standby
- 5.5-inch Display, TBA resolution (probably 1080p)
- 2.6GHz Helio X27 processor
- 4GB of RAM
- 128GB internal storage
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- 4G LTE
- 13-megapixel dual rear cameras with autofocus and LED flash
- 13-megapixel front camera

There will be a Helio X27 SoC under the hood clocked at 2.6GHz, a fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port, and a battery that supports fast charging. It is also rumoured that the Gemini Pro will launch with Android Nougat out of the box. And guess what? The price for all of the specs above is just $199.99. Impressive, right?
Ulefone is said to be the maker of the Cherry Mobile Flare Infinity (or at least from the same OEM) – the local company’s most interesting flagship smartphone the year.
There is no confirmed date of release yet but the Ulefone Gemini Pro is expected to hit shelves in China between the end of January and early February.
