UMi Z – Our Milestone on a New Journey!


The model UMi Z has a great significance for the company UMi for several reasons, and to offer an incredibly balanced hardware setup for the best possible user experience is the most important one. Greater outlooks with superior quality can be expected from UMi in newer models for sure. The year 2016 is a milestone to UMi, as the company grows at an amazing rate and successfully keep delivering quality surpassing models one after one, that finally caught the eyes of the renown processor maker MediaTek, who later proposed UMi two exclusive deals for the first global launch of Helio P20 and now X27 processor in UMi products.

But having an advanced processor is not enough, great user experience is possible only when all the hardware are carefully and thoughtfully balanced. Today, let’s move aside from the performance, and have a look at the design and craftsmanship of the new UMi Powerhouse!

Remarkable Precision
UMi promised to bring aesthetics, quality, and usability to a whole new level. The UMi Z’s metal unibody is carved from a single slab of premium aluminum, resulting in an ultra-thin design that is solidly built. The company spent months on upgrading and perfecting both techniques and hardware to create a unique full metal body design (a premiere for UMi), and some incredibly thin Nano 3D cutting lines on the sides which makes them visually comfortable. The ergonomic design of the curves also makes it very comfortable in hand. For colors, UMi chose Gray and Gold to highlight the metallic texture.

Meticulous Craftsmanship

UMi chose premium full-CNC processing to create a solid body within an 8.2 mm thickness. We also adopted a unique reinforced design to increase the plate thickness to over 0.5 mm. Advanced nano injection molding technology is introduced to largely improve the frame strength and quality while keeping the final weight down to 175g, a great result considering the materials and the big battery. The entire body - including places you may not notice such as the loudspeaker, microphone and SD card slot - is polished and chamfered to deliver a shining and smooth touch. Maximum care even on the most unnoticed parts of the device. Also, the internal space is carefully optimized to allow a better thermal management of the CPU. A fundamental challenge of full metal bodies is the quality of antenna signal, often an issue for many manufacturers. Thanks to the big improvements in antenna technologies, the company found an efficient and elegant solution to solve it. We chose the PBT injection molding material, adding two very thin stripes on the full metal body with advanced electrochemical processing technology, this creates deep 3D nano structures on the magnalium surface, tightening the cohesion between the metal and injection molding parts.
