Umidigi revealed today that they are planning on releasing a new smartphone. If the Umidigi S5 Pro is a game-centric mid-ranger with a few interesting specs, the A7 Pro, as the new device is called, comes with a low price tag of under $150 and a lower-tier CPU. Still, it manages to offer a decent quad-camera setup on the back and decent FullHD+ screen, something rarely seen at this price point.
The Umidigi A7 is powered by the Mediatek Helio P23 chipset and comes with 4GB of RAM. The CPU has an octa-core configuration and is more than capable for most tasks, but don’t expect any top gaming performance. For web browsing, social media and videos though, it is a capable CPU. The A7 Pro will come in two variants, with either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. It has a 6.3″ FullHD+ screen with a waterdrop notch on front that holds the selfie camera, and slim bezels. It is an LCD panel, but I don’t think anyone was expecting an AMOLED display.
On the back you will find a quad-camera setup that consists of a 16MP primary sensor, a 16MP camera with an ultra-wide lens, a 5MP depth-sensing camera and a 5MP macro-lens camera. I don’t expect the Umidigi A7 to be able to compete with mid-range smartphones when it comes to photography, especially since it does not have the widely-used 48MP main sensor, but it does make up by having a $150 price tag. There is also a 16MP selfie camera. All in all, it is a good camera setup and hard to find something better at this price range.
As most Chinese phones, Umidigi A7 has dual-4G SIM slots and it also includes a dedicated microSD card slot for expanding storage space. There is a read-mounted fingerprint reader Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, FM Radio and a 3.5mm audio jack. NFC is the only missing feature. It also runs Android 10 out of the box. The device will be sold starting next month with a special promotion on the 26th of May. The new smartphone will be sold on their Aliexpress official store Aliexpress official store.
