Ulefone added a new device to their portfolio, the Ulefone Note 7. Even though the name suggests that this a high-end smartphone, making references to the Note series from Samsung, you can’t be further away from the truth. The Ulefone Note 7 is a low-end smartphone that, hopefully, will compete on price. Even the screen is mediocre, having just 6.1″ in diagonal (which is considered normal by today’s standards) and an HD+ only resolution (1280×600).
The internals are pretty basic as well. It comes with a quad-core Mediatek MT6580 CPU that is clocked at 1.3GHz and the phone has only 1GB of RAM. This may prove to be insufficient nowadays since more and more apps require higher specs to run properly. The save for the Ulefone Note 7 is the fact that it comes with Android Go, the special edition of the OS that is tailored for low-end devices. The phone also comes with 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded with up to 64GB microSD card.
Compared to other similar specs smartphones (the Xiaomi Redmi Go for example), the Ulefone Note 7 will try to compete on photography. Ulefone sais that their smartphone has improved photo quality thanks to the 3 camera setup present on the back of the phone. It has an 8MP main sensor, a 2MP secondary one, and another 2MP sensor. It is unclear how this setup helps (since none are indicated to be depth-sensing or wide-angle cameras) and on the MT6580 spec sheet, it does not say that it supports a triple-camera setup. I would take this with a grain of salt. On the front of the device, you will get a 5MP selfie camera, enclosed in a waterdrop-notch.
Connectivity wise, the phone lacks a lot. It is a dual-sim smartphone, but it only supports 3G speeds. It has WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 as well as GPS. You will have to charge it through the old micro-USB connector, but at least it comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Ulefone Noe 7 will be available in three colors (black, gold and twilight). Official pricing was not yet revealed, but considering the specs, I don’t expect it to surpass $70. If it does, I doubt anyone will be interested in it considering that there are better-specced smartphones available for just a little more.
