The upcoming UMIDIGI S3 Pro features an impressive 48 + 12 MP main camera setup
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.
