The Umidigi G6 5G is a new smartphone with a night vision camera and modern cellular connectivity standards. NFC is also on board for contactless payments.

Night vision cameras are not completely unusual on smartphones. Various rugged smartphones offer such a function, and Umidigi has just announced the G6 5G, a not particularly robust and compact smartphone with such a function. The infrared sensor operates with a advertised resolution of 5 MP, while the main camera has 50 MP and the front camera 8 MP.

The smartphone is equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 6100+, which not only supports important LTE bands, such as band 20, but also 5G networks. The use of two SIM cards is supported as long as the 128 GB internal storage is not expanded. 6 GB of RAM is installed, which should be sufficient for everyday use.

The smartphone measures 163.9 x 75.3 x 8.3 mm (H x L x W) and has a 5,000 mAh battery, which is charged with 10 watts and therefore not particularly quickly. The 183 gm model comes with a fingerprint sensor on the side, while facial unlocking in complete darkness is supposedly possible thanks to an IR camera and IR LEDs on the front.

The 6.57-inch display has resolution of 1616 x 720 and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. NFC is available, for which a dedicated button is provided. Information on price or availability of the G6 5G is still pending.
