Question about the Fairphone 1/U

So I was wondering, what are the differences between the Fairphone 1 and the Fairphone 1U? I couldn’t find a straight answer, but maybe I just didn’t look hard enough or in the same place, so I thought I’d ask here, thanks!

A different chip (processor). The main effect was/is that the FP1U can record 1080p video, the FP1 only 720p (if my memory is right).

I didn’t know! What was the SoC from before and after? I couldn’t see anything about them!

The FP1 has a MT6589 (Quad-core) @1.2 GHz.

It is not very revealing though.
If my memory serves me right, there were some design changes, so especially the display fit only the FP1 or FP1U.
And another difference was, that the 1U came with the unified storage, that you had to apply to the 1 manually, if you wanted. As it was shipped with 16 GB internal memory and 1 GB RAM only, that was not enough for using many apps or some very memory-intense apps. The unified memory enabled the phone to make use of the whole 16 GB for storing app data.
(All techies out there: Please correct me, if I got it wrong.)

Edit:
Just found some links to old FP pages, that are still available in the support section - as there are still FP1-users out there.
Here’s the storage problem briefly explained: Storage layout of the Fairphone 1
