However, we are unable to provide you with any information because neither UMi nor Google representatives have confirmed this rumor, which ultimately means that we will be kept in limbo until UMi or Google announce something in the future. UMi has grown quite popular in the smartphone, most probably because it is following a very effective business model of providing customers with highly affordable handsets that feature impressive hardware and state of the art features such as fingerprint sensors.
Seeing as how UMi is doing well in the smartphone market, the rumor is spreading that Google is partnering with it. But what exactly is the purpose of the partnership, assuming the rumor is true? Looks like we are going to find out sometime in the future so you will have to wait for more updates.
