Chinese phone maker UMIDIGI has expanded its reach and this week announced it has begun selling its unlocked devices in the Middle East. This marks just the latest market for UMIDIGI following Africa and Latin America.
As part of an exclusive partnership with Souq.com, customers in the Middle East will be able to purchase devices such as the UMIDIGI A3 and A3 Pro.
Let’s take a look at the two devices now available through Souq’s website.
Featuring a 5.5-inch display at a 1,400 x 720 pixel resolution, the phone packs a dual rear-camera setup of 12-megapixels and 5-megapixels.
Performance comes in the form of a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor with 2GB RAM. Storage is listed at 16GB but a microSD expansion card slot allows for up to 256GB of extra media.
The dual-SIM UMIDIGI 3 is sold in Grey and Gold options with a price of 299 AED (~$81 USD).
The UMIDIGI A3 Pro is a bit stronger and more robust in a variety of areas as compared to the A3. The screen’s bigger, there’s more memory, but the price stays low.
Powered by Android 8.1 Oreo, the A3 Pro features the same MediaTek MTK6739 processor but with 3GB RAM. Internal storage is 32GB with an external microSD card slot for music, photos, and other media.
The 5.7-inch display is a touch larger with resolution punched up to 1,512 x 720 pixels. Similar to the A3, this phone boasts a 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel rear configuration and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
Priced at just 435 AED ($119 USD), the A3 Pro can be had in Gold and Grey colors. If you’re interested in either of these phones, you’ll want to act fast as they’re discounted for a short time.
