Around a month back, Chinese phone maker UMIDIGI launched two really interesting low to mid-rangers, the UMIDIGI One and One Pro. The smartphones are now on sale over at Coolicool, so if you liked the two handsets but pricing was what held you off, then keep reading and learn more about them before heading to the store!
Let’s begin with some of the hardware both phones have in common. The UMIDIGI One series adopts a 5.9-inch 19:9 full screen display with HD+ resolution (1520×720 pixels) and a pretty high screen to body ratio. The size of the phone itself is pretty compact though, so it should be fitting the old 5.2-inch 16:9 pieces. Another highlight for the series is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on top of the power button and dual-speaker stereo sound system.
Both models are equipped with Helio P23 octa-core processor and 4 GB RAM, but UMIDIGI One gets only 32 GB of internal storage, while the Pro variant sports 64 GB. Another difference is in battery capacities and charging, because the basic version runs bigger 3550 mAh battery, but supports only 10W fast charging. Meanwhile the One Pro ups the ante with 18W wired fast charging, 15W wireless charging, but only 3250 mAh battery capacity. As a bonus and last difference the Pro equips an NFC chip.

Rest of the specs are identical including the 12MP+5MP rear cameras with main OV12870 sensor, f/2.0 aperture and large 1/2.8’’ optical format. Another nice feature is dual SIM 4G VoLTE in both slots and the support for the global bands with 7 network modes and 36 global bands so the phone is a perfect travel companion. Both phones are available in twilight and carbon fiber color variants.
