UMIDIGI Z2/Z2 Pro: Hands-On with World’s First 6.2’’ FHD+ Helio P60 SoC Phone

From previous press releases we had already heard that the UMIDIGI Z2/Z2 Pro was going to be the world’s first 6.2’’ FHD+ top-notch equipped phone packing a Mediatek Helio P60 flagship SoC. Well, that appears to be confirmed today as the company just announced to be bringing the phone at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics Fair that is kicking off tomorrow in Hong Kong. If you can’t wait to check it out in person, or you are just unable to, UMIDIGI just released an hands-on video with the device. Let’s watch it down below.

The Mediatek Helio P60 is a undoubtedly going to be a flagship chipset in 2018 for the Chinese company. The processor has already showed its strength with its 5871 Geekbench multi-core score, becoming a competitor of the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. With 12 threads, an independent APU for artificial intelligence, and the Mali-G72 MP3 image processor, the Helio P60 boosts game performance up to 70% vs previous generation.

Checking out the video above, it’s clear that UMIDIGI Z2/Z2 Pro will also sport an iPhone X-like all-screen display with a notch top for installing necessary sensors yet delivering a large and immersive visual experience. Other than that, we’re glad to see the phone already running Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, which is a great addition to a phone that seems to be packing some quite good hardware as well as a beautiful design.

    I’m seeing more and more new phones that are over 6 inches in display size. Is there no end to the “bigger is better” fad? If I can’t carry a phone in my shirt pocket without having to worry about it falling out, I don’t want it. If I want a tablet, I will buy a tablet.

      But these phones are smaller physically then other 5.5″ phones like for example the iPhone 8 plus.

      The large iPhones are a poor example – the early ones all had monstrous bezels. The LG G3 of 2014 was 74.6 mm wide, a classic 5.5 inch phone. Yes, bezels are narrower now but once phones get displays of 6.5 mm and larger then they will generally be more than 75 mm wide or ridiculously long.
