UMIDIGI is one of the lesser known Chinese brands to offer affordable smartphones with worldwide shipping. With the popularity of the bezel-less smartphone, there are many Chinese branded smartphones coming with the bezel-less displays. The upcoming UMIDIGI S2 Pro also comes with a two-sided bezel-less display and offers 18:9 aspect ratio. While the Samsung Galaxy S8 came with18.5:9 aspect ratio, the LG G6 offered 18:9 aspect ratio. The S2 Pro sports a unibody metal design and features curved antenna bands on the top and bottom edges offering a clean look on the rear.
Talking about the specifications, the 5.99-inch Sharp display on the first offer Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution. There is also a Corning Gorilla Glass protection the top. Under the hood is the 16nm MediaTek Helio P25 octa-core processor clocked at 2.6GHz and Mali-T880 MP2 GPU. It includes 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The dual camera setup on the rear features 13MP and 5MP dual rear cameras. Both the dual-lens camera and the fingerprint sensor are aligned to the center. It is backed by a 5,100mAh non-removable battery that is mentioned to give 2 days of usage.
It also as Wireless Charging support along with Quick Charging using the USB Type-C port. The fingerprint sensor will be placed on the rear of the device. Since the S2 Pro comes with minimal bezels, we expect to see on-screen navigation buttons instead of the capacitive buttons. It should be running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The power button and volume rocker can be found on the right edge of the device. It also got NFC that might make the device used for authorizing mobile payments like Android Pay.
As seen with the earlier UMIDIGI smartphone, the S2 Pro is also expected to come with an aggressive price tag. A couple of months back, the company launched Z1 Pro smartphone with a dual-lens camera and bigger battery. It packs a 4,000mAh battery and measures just 6.95mm thickness. The device is currently retailing for $299 and includes MT6757 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. It came with a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) AMOLED display and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
The design of the UMIDIGI Z1 Pro looks almost similar to the Honor 8 Pro. Unlike the S2 Pro, the Z1 Pro comes with a front facing physical home button that also houses the fingerprint sensor.
