Pre-Order the Doogee N10 for just $79.99

Still, for web navigation, email and instant messaging, such a smartphone…

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.

Cubot revealed a new smartphone this week and they decided to offer an interesting design for the screen. There is still a notch, but it is placed on the side, making a cut-out in the screen’s corner. According to them, this is more natural and offers less interruption in the content.
