UMIDIGI Z1 and Z1 Pro unveiled
We recently had a look at the release of images of UMIDIGI's new flagship devices, the Z1 and Z1 Pro. We also promised to keep you updated, so here we are, bringing word of the official unveiling of both devices.
Both devices feature a 5.5" FHD display but while the Z1 opts for an LCD screen, the Z1 Pro uses an AMOLED display. Both are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
UMIDIGI's new flagships are powered by MediaTek's Helio P20 (MT6757) in what is probably the most disappointing feature of these devices. That processor can at best be described as a solid mid-range SoC, and UMIDIGI's choice must be questioned. Both carry 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage memory, dual rear cameras (13MP+5MP), a front-mounted fingerprint reader, and a 4000mAh battery.
Both devices are rather sleek, with the regular Z1 having a thickness of 8.2mm, and the Z1 Pro with 6.95mm—a feature attributed to the AMOLED panel it uses. They also bear a striking resemblance to the iPhone 7, for what it's worth.
The Z1 will retail for $270 and the Z1 Pro for $300. The Z1 Pro is a limited stock edition with only 1000 available units for the global market, though, so you'll have to go on UMIDIGI's website to register for one if you're interested.
