How it Works

Using the UFED CHINEX is simple and efficient: The UFED CHINEX connectivity box acts as the interface between the phone and the UFED. The UFED enables the automatic pin-out identication. By selecting “Chinese phones physical extraction” in the UFED menu, the phone pin-out will be detected and the extraction to a USB disk drive will start automatically.

Using the UFED Physical Analyzer, users can decode the extracted data and create customized reports in multiple formats.

The Chinese Chipset Market

Rising to the challenge of the overwhelming number of phones with Chinese chipsets ooding the international market, Cellebrite's UFED CHINEX presents a solution for the forensically sound logical and physical extraction of data and passwords from these devices.

UFED CHINEX supports two of the biggest names in the Chinese chipset market; MTK (Mediatek) and Spreadtrum. MTK is the largest market-share holder with nearly 70 percent and Spreadtrum holds a market share close to 25 percent.

Over the years, sales of these devices have skyrocketed mainly because they are cheaper, frequently offer more features than are commonly available on recognized brands and are widely distributed on a global scale.



Cellebrite’s UFED CHINEX solution leverages a third-party hardware interface while the forensically sound extraction is implemented using proprietary boot loaders.

Advanced decoding is enabled with UFED Physical Analyzer; the industry’s most powerful application tool. Decoding chain and plug-ins are also the result of extensive Cellebrite research and development.
