Today Umidigi unveiled their latest smartphone, the Umidigi F2. We already knew quite a few details about this device, but today’s release does shine a light on the phone and offers us all the missing specs and features. And, to be quite honest, the Umidigi F2 is an interesting device considering the price it is being sold for. Sale of the phone won’t start until the 14th of October, so you will have to wait a bit until you can get your hands on it, but it may be worth it.
The Umidigi F2 comes with the Mediatek Helio P70 chipset that is paired with 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM. I would have loved to see the Helio P90, but the P70 is still a good mid-range chipset that can handle almost everything you can throw at it. The phone has a 6.53″ FullView screen with FullHD+ resolution and slim bezels. There is no notch, instead, Umidigi opting for a punch-hole to holster the 32MP selfie camera.
On the back, you will find a nice gradient-pattern in either black or blue and 4 cameras. The main camera has a 48MP sensor, there is an ultra-wide-angle camera with a 13MP sensor as well as a 5MP macro-lens. Lastly, the F2 has a 5MP depth-sensing camera. Together, they should be capable to handle many scenarios with ease when it comes to photography. The back is not interrupted by a fingerprint reader, but don’t get too excited and hope for an under-display one. The Umidigi F2 instead has a side-mounted fingerprint reader right under the volume buttons.
Another interesting aspect is that the Umidigi F2 comes with stock Android 10 out of the box. This is good news, especially considering that the company does not have a good track record when it comes to major software updates for their devices. In terms of connectivity, the phone also is pretty solid. You get Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, dual-4G SIM slots as well as a microSD card slot. Another nice addition is NFC that can also be used for payments. All in all, it is a solid smartphone considering the $250 price tag and an even better deal when during the pre-sale event where the price will be even lower (approx $220).
Now, the phone is not perfect and it does have some solid competition from Xiaomi and Realme. The last two companies have quad-camera devices as well with slightly better configurations (and probably better software) but they are also more expensive and lack some of the features present on the Umidigi F2. I would recommend you take a look over the Umidigi F2 if you are searching for a mid-range smartphone.
