Umidigi launches a new phone, the Umidigi Power

Seems like Umidigi is at it again and launched another smartphone. This one is called the Umidigi Power because, apparently, it focuses on battery life by having a big battery and a lower power CPU. These claims, however, seem to be mostly marketing because the battery has a capacity of 5150mAh, just like the Umidigi F1 Play. Still, the phone should last longer because the Power has the Helio P35, a lower-power CPU.

Still, the Umidigi Power has some decent specs. The Helio P35 chip is paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It has a 6.3″ FullHD+ screen with a waterdrop notch and a design very similar to the F1 line-up. You won’t be judged if, at first glance, you don’t see any differences. On the back, the Umidigi Power comes with a 16MP+5MP camera and the front notch holds a 16MP selfie camera. Not the 48MP sensor from the F1 Play, but this should also cost less than that.

From a connectivity point, the Umidigi Power has it all. You will get dual 4G SIM slots, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, a fingerprint reader on the back and even NFC that supports payment. Good to see that they did not compromise here. Also, the 5150mAh battery supports quick-charge with up to 18W power draw. Android Pie with no skin on top is pre-installed, but, judging by past experience, it won’t get any updates. Pricing was not revealed but, considering that the F1 Play is about $200, I expect this one to be around $170-$180.
