The Galaxy devices may have made the bezel-less display popular but it's the underdog OEMs that have made a point of bringing that particular design factor to the budget segment. The UMIDIGI S2 is the newest device to take a shot at that form, and it's looking like a success. Design-wise, at least.
While some other OEMs may have had the display as the most prominent feature of the device, the S2 actually holds up in other aspects (We've received some negative feedback on its cameras, though, but that's unconfirmed at the moment).
The S2 sports a 6-inch FHD display, albeit with an 18:9 aspect ratio that effectively gives it the feel of a 5.5-inch device. This display is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Under the hood, the S2 houses MediaTek's Helio P20, 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 64 GB of storage, and a 5100 mAh battery that gets power by way of Quick Charge 2.0 charging technology.
Camera-wise, the S2 sports a 13 MP +5 MP rear camera setup, with a regular 5 MP selfie shooter. The rear camera is a Sony IMX258 one, which is the same sensor on devices like the Xiaomi Redmi Pro, OnePlus X, and Elephone P9000.
The S2 is available for US$180 here.
