Chinese mobile phone vendor UMI has launched its latest Android smartphone. Dubbed the Umi Fair, the new handset comes with a dirt-cheap price tag of $99 according to the product listing on Umi’s website; however, none of the “buy” links found on the page had the product in stock as at the time of filing this report.
Fair enough, the product comes with a 5-inch 720p touchscreen display. Under the hood, you’ll find a 64 bit-based MediaTek MT6735 chipset clubbed with a quad-core 1GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage. The smartphone is also equipped with a microSD card slot and two micro SIM slots.
For taking photographs, Umi Fair comes with a rear-facing 13-megapixel Sony IMX164 sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a dual-tone LED flash. The opposite side of the phone is adorned by a 2-megapixel secondary camera for taking selfies.

On paper, Umi Fair is powered by a 2000mAh battery which delivers up to 170 hours of standby time, 10.5 hours on-screen time, and 6.8 hours of 4G web browsing. The handset supports Wi-Fi, Bluetoth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and LTE connectivity. The body measures 143.5 x 72 x 8.4 mm and tips the scale at 120 grams (inclusive of the battery).
Google will bring native fingerprint support with Android 6.0 Marshmallow but Umi Fair somehow ships with Android 5.1 Lollipop and still offers a circular fingerprint scanner at the back. The company claims the fingerprint reader has about 99 percent accuracy and recognizes inputs in just 0.32 seconds.
