Umidigi announced today a new entry-level smartphone. Called the Umidigi A3S, the device has low-end specifications but also a low price, at just $60. Don’t expect to push this smartphone too much, but for basic web browsing and social networks. It also has a rather outdated design, with both top and bottom bezels. On the bright side, it has good connectivity options, making it suitable for emerging markets and for people who don’t want to spend too much on a smartphone.
The Umidigi A3S has a quad-core Mediatek A22 chipset and 2GB of RAM. The 16GB of internal storage may be insufficient by today’s standards, but the phone has a microSD card slot, so you can easily expand it. The 5.7″ screen has only HD+ resolution but paired with the low-power chipset means that the 3950mAh battery should last quite a bit. On the back of the device you will find a dual-camera setup with a 16MP+5MP sensor, while on the front the phone features a 13MP selfie camera with AI beauty-enhancing capabilities. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint reader.
Umidigi A3S has a dual-SIM slot both with 4G connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS. Sadly, it comes with the older micro-USB port, but for $60 you can’t really ask for more. Stock Android 10 is offered out of the box, making it the cheapest smartphone right now to come with this version of the operating system. The phone will start sale on the 9th on Aliexpress.
