We want to cut the middleman.
Let's face it smartphones are OVER PRICED! Too much money is spent on marketing and advertising by big corporations. The consumer ends up paying for a pricier smartphone because of this, and buying a flagship phone is nearly impossible without committing to a yearly contract.
For the first time ever UBIK is introducing an affordable no bezel flagship smartphone, with no strings attached.
UBIK UNO is simply one of the most exciting pieces of hardware we’ve seen in a long time.
UBIK UNO's Retail Price (If the campaign is funded): $320
As of this moment, UBIK UNO is looking like the best Android Smartphone you'll be able to buy for the foreseeable future.
The UBIK UNO's camera takes amazing pictures even in low light conditions. Shoot anytime, anywhere for bright, sharp photos. Our camera boasts 6 physical lenses. Your photos will be more precise and detailed without suffering from distortion often caused by lower apertures. It also includes a 5 MegaPixel front camera with fixed focus.
Android Lollipop 5.1 has power for the long haul with a battery saver feature that extends life of it. And now it's easier to manage your power usage - see the estimated time left before you need to charge, and when you're charging, approximately how much time until it's topped up and ready to go.
