UMIDIGI's latest device is the A1 Pro. The device will be powered by the new MT6739 SoC, and will feature dual rear cameras, an 18:9 HD+ display, 3 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage. The presence of a USB Type-C port is, perhaps, the biggest surprise on this.

UMIDIGI is one of the smaller Chinese OEMs on the up. The company has taken to producing devices with low price tags and relatively impressive specifications. The newest device to make its way from the company's assembly lines is the A1 Pro, and it does look interesting, especially considering the listed price.

The A1 Pro features a 5-inch HD+ display, which is likely to appeal to lovers of compact devices. Its 18:9 ratio would effectively give it the feel of a 4.6-inch 16:9 device, so it's sure to fit snugly in-hand. The device is powered by MediaTek's budget MT6739 and features 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. UMIDIGI claims the device sports a dual rear camera setup ( 13 MP + 5MP, f/2.0) but we've heard reports of UMIDIGI devices featuring placebo secondary sensors, so we're leery.

The A1 Pro gets its juice from a 3150 mAh battery that can be charged up via a USB Type-C port—a rare feature in that price bracket. It also features a 5 MP selfie shooter and a rear fingerprint reader.

It has an MSRP of US$139.99 but those who pre-order will get a US$40 discount. It will be available in color options of Moonlight Silver, Icy Blue, Pitch Dark.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
