CNET First Look
Ubik Uno, a Kickstarter-launched Android phone, aims to crowdsource future designsWhat is an Ubik Uno? It's a 5.5-inch unlocked phone running stock Android 5.1, with pretty decent specs. We take a look at a prototype.
Suddenly it seems like there are a lot of phones on the market from brands you may not recognize. The Ubik Uno is one of them. The Uno is meant to be the first in a series of crowd sourced phone concepts. The first version, the Ubik Uno, has an aluminium frame, a 1080p IPS display, 5.5 inches, three gigs of ram, and an octa-core MediaTek processor. It going to cost $345 retail, but it's going to cost a little bit less on the Kickstarter campaign. From that point, UBICK will actually invite users to pick out their dream phone, and with that collected crowd sourced information will release new phones in the future aiming for as many possibly as three a year. There's a 20 megapixel rear camera from Sony on the back, but we don't what the quality will feel like when we actually use it. And the most interesting thing is that it runs Stock Android Lollipop 5.1 which is not the most common thing to find on Android phones. The Ubik Uno has a lot of competition out there. There are a lot of phones aiming for your money in the unlocked arena, But this one at least looks like it's on the higher end spec wise. I'm Scott Stein at CNet taking a brief look at the Ubik Uno now. [SOUND]
