Another interesting feature about this flagship device is the camera build and capabilities. The Umi Plus E sports a 13MP Samsung 0.1s PDAF camera on the rear which according to UMi can record videos up to 4K resolutions. The rear camera also has shutter speed of 0.1s and an anti-glare coating which helps in producing stunning professional quality images whenever pictures are taken.

Moving on to the front shooter. There is a quite normal or can I say mediocre 5.0 MP shooter with can also capture and produce sharp images with good colors, but perhaps not good enough for selfie groupies and addicts.
