Ulefone has followed the launch of the flagship Ulefone T1 with a more affordable model named the Ulefone S8 Pro boasting dual camera support, and more.
For those of you with a little knowledge of Ulefone, you will remember that the phone had already launched a dual Camera S8 earlier in the year, but that model has now been superseded with the updated S8 Pro.
Like the original S8, the Ulefone S8 Pro runs a dual camera set up on the rear of the phone using a main 13 megapixel sensor and secondary 5 megapixel sensor. This is a huge upgraded compared to similarly priced phones and allows the S8 Pro user to take photos with a similar Bokeh effect that is usually reserved for DSLR users. The selfie specs are also right up there too with a front facing 5 megapixel sensor but with the addition of a front LED flash.
As far as the internal hardware specifications compare to the original S8, the S8 Pro sees multiple update from 4G LTE support, powerful quad-core Mediatek MT6737 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and 3000mAh battery. The S8 Pro also comes with a rapid fingerprint scanner with an unlock speed of 0.18s.

While Ulefone is keen to point out that the S8 Pro is a budget phone they have been generous enough to build the handset with quality materials including a metal frame, elegant curved rear panel and 2.5D display.
Speaking of the display, it’s also with mentioning that Ulefone has taken the rather unique approach of using a 5.3-inch HD display with super narrow 0.5mm wide bezels, rare at any price let alone on a phone for less than $80.
The final feature highlight is the triple card support. While other Android phones allow the use of either dual SIM cards or a single SIM plus SD card, Ulefone has built the S8 Pro to accept both dual SIM cards and an SD card of up to 128GB! A great feature that we’re sure other brands will be quick to copy.
