In a world where $1,000 smartphones are becoming the norm, Chinese smartphone maker UMIDIGI wants to remind customers that you don’t have to pay an outrageous sum to get a decent phone.
The company has taken the opportunity to tease its upcoming product, the entry-level UMIDIGI A1 Pro, with an introductory video this week.
Despite being a budget-product, the UMIDIGI A1 Pro takes advantage of a modern 5.5-inch 18:9 aspect ratio display with 1440 x 720 resolution. It boasts an 85% screen-to-body ratio and has a thin 8.5mm frame.
UMIDIGI’s entry-level offering runs Android 8.1 Oreo
When it comes to internal specifications, the A1 Pro boasts a MediaTek MT6739 processor under the hood, aided by 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
While this is an entry-level product, the UMIDIGI A1 Pro includes some features you’d normally find in more premium devices. Like a dual-camera which pairs a 13-megapixel sensor with a 5-megapixel one. As for selfies, users will be able to take advantage of the 5-megapixel selfie-snapper with f/2.0 aperture.
What’s more, unlike other phones launching today, the super-affordable A1 Pro will land on the market with the latest Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
Additional specs include a 3,150 mAh battery and a USB-C Quick Charge thanks to which you can fully charge the phone within 2 hours.
Last but not least, the UMIDIGI A1 Pro will include a Face ID feature, which will allow users to unlock their device with their face under 0.3s.
