Samsung Galaxy S7 has a meaningfully different look and touch with rough edges smoothed. The curves are bold, totally changing how users think about smarphones’ shapes. This is exactly what UHANS A101 is trying to learn from it. However, not all of it. The plastic with rubber coating A101 applies is distinctive from S7’s premium glass. Guess they want to get rid of all the smudges that comes with glass material though it looks and feels quite so damn nice. That said, the texture of A101 may be soft and fingerprint-resistant.
A premium design does not only make S7 the best smartphone, but the specifications. It’s got quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM and 32/64GB ROM, 5.1-inch super AMOLED display with 1440*2560 resolution. It runs Android 6.0 and has a 12MP rear camera, 5MP camera and 3000 mAh battery capacity. What’s more, it is IP 68 certified. UHANS A101 is nothing compared to Samsung Galaxy S7. What powers it up is quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor pairing with 1GB RAM ans 8GB ROM. It also runs the Android 6.0, however, it has a 5.0-inch display with 1280*720 resolution, 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. The battery capacity is 2450mAh. The A101 takes three very Nokia-like characteristics and blends them into a modern Android smartphone. It’s compact and hard-wearing, and has a removable battery.
However, there’s no point in comparing the specs without considering the prices. High-end specs of Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with a price. Indeed, a high price about $750, which is almost 10 times as UHANS A101.
UHANS CEO Eric Wu said, “People are overusing smartphones these days, some are even addicted, so we want more and more functions on a smartphone. But we don’t really need that much, sometimes less is more.” Therefore, the A101 goes back to basics with minimal specs to meet the most basic needs.
The A101 clearly isn’t made to be a powerhouse. It’s made for affordability so that anyone can afford one, and the expected cost is less than $70. Pre-orders for the A101 will begin in a few days.
