Apparently, UMIDIGI surprised everybody at the IFA 2017 that’s taking place in Berlin and just launched the UMIDIGI S2 and S2 Pro, their latest 18:9 display aspect ratio phones. After seeing Samsung releasing the Note 8 and LG with the V30, the Chinese company couldn’t wait any longer and finally unveiled both them.

The UMIDIGI S2 Pro will be coming with a big 6-inch display in the body size comparable to a 5.5-inch phone, the previously mentioned 18:9 aspect ratio, a massive 5100mAh capacity battery, a full metal body and two rear cameras produced by Sony. Below you’ll find the full specifications.
