Chinese brand UMIDIGI will soon hit us with another "flagship killer" that sports a main camera setup made by Sony that combines a 48 MP IMX586 sensor and a 12 MP telephoto shooter. The upcoming UMIDIGI S3 Pro also features a 6.3-inch full HD+ display with a waterdrop-style notch, a 5,150 mAh battery, and a luxury ceramic design.

UMIDIGI is one of those Chinese underdogs that often put a few top features above everything else and the upcoming S3 Pro is a handset that closely follows this approach. Its main highlight is the Sony IMX586 48 MP camera, which has been combined with a 12 MP sensor with a telephoto lens to create an impressive dual setup for the main mobile photography tasks.

Also used in the Huawei Hova 4 and Honor View 20, the Sony IMX586 sensor is physically larger than most competitors, measuring 1/2 inches. The specs list of the upcoming UMIDIGI S3 Pro also includes the following: a MediaTek Helio P70 processor, 6 GB of memory, 128 GB of internal storage, a 6.3-inch full HD+ display with a waterdrop-style notch, a 20 MP selfie shooter, a 5,150 mAh battery, as well as Android 9.0 Pie software.

Unfortunately, there are two essentials missing: a launch date and a price. On the bright side, UMIDIGI has decided to keep the traditional 3.5 mm audio jack in the S3 Pro, so this handset might be a good deal for many consumers. We only need to see how tough can be this "luxury ceramic" design that UMIDIGI is using for this device.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
