The UMIDIGI A1 Pro features the new MT6739 SoC and costs just US$99
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.
