UMIDIGI allegedly has a new triple-camera phone ready for launch
Rumors that UMIDIGI have a new phone in the works has appeared out of nowhere as of late. GizmoChina claims to have found a photo showing the protective film with which this putative device would ship. It is of the kind that informs an unboxing experience by bearing a printed list of the device's best attributes.
The blog that has posted this image argues that its existence suggests that the phone in question - the UMIDIGI X - is just about ready for launch. According to the plastic film, the 'X' has an in-display fingerprint scanner in its 6.35-inch AMOLED display. This component is described as "Full Screen", thus hinting at an adaptation such as a notch to keep the bezels at a minimum in this phone.
The putative UMIDIGI X also has a "48MP AI triple camera" with an ultrawide-angle lens. This suggests that the device to which this film goes is a premium device; then again, the budget-friendly Redmi K20 can boast the same specs.
On that note, references to a 4150mAh battery and 18W fast charging draws a close comparison between these specs and the pre-existing A5 Pro from this brand. This phone also has a rear triple camera; however, the main sensor is a mere 16MP in this case. Therefore, it appears that UMIDIGI is packing more power into this same form-factor.
The X also apparently features "multi-functioning" NFC (which can be used for Google Pay) and a depth of 7.9mm. However, its potential leak fails to mention anything about its RAM, processing power or storage capacity.
GizmoChina has also published a promotional poster for this phone. However, if its development as a product was indeed at this stage, it is odd that no certifications (e.g from the official Chinese agency TENAA) or unofficial benchmarks for an "UMIDIGI X" could be found (correct at time of writing).
