Two days ago Umidigi has announced that they will release the Umidigi S3 Pro in the second half of Febraury, however, today the company launched their IndieGoGo campaign for their next device. This answers a few questions that were still unanswered related to the device, including pricing and availability. So, if the S3 pro with it’s 48MP Sony camera caught your attention, I am happy to say that it will cost just $269.99 if you order it on IndieGoGo.
I know that this is more expensive than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, but it does come with a few extra features. For starters, the Umidigi S3 Pro has a ceramic body. Also, the smartphone comes with a bigger battery that supports quick charge. Spec wise, it also looks better than the Redmi Note 7, at least on paper. You get 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Yes, we get a Mediatek CPU, compared to the SD660, but the Helio P70 from the Umidigi S3 pro promises great performance and lower power consumption.
Connectivity wise, the S3 Pro also stays really good. You get dual 4G connectivity, as it is expected from modern Chinese smartphones, GPS, Bluetooth and NFC that can also be used for payments. Android 9 is also offered out of the box. For $269.99, the Umidigi S3 pro may be a good buy for those that are interested in testing the new 48MP sensors that are very popular nowadays. Order it now on IndieGoGo with shipping starting in Martch.
