The 48MP rear camera sensors are making a splash in the mobile industry recently so it’s considered good manners from more or less every maker to get on the board using them. From the UMIDIGI brand we have already seen it used in the world’s first ceramic 48MP phone with UMIDIGI S3 Pro, but now they officially announced an upgraded version of the F1 model called the UMIDIGI F1 Play. So let’s take a look at this beast.
UMIDIGI F1 Play features a 48MP main camera paired with 8MP depth camera on the rear. Like their UMIDIGI S3 Pro, as well as Mi 9 and OPPO F11 Pro, the 48MP camera sensor measures 1/2 inch and has 1.6 micron super pixels (with pixel binning technology to merge four 0.8 micron pixels into one when in low light). And with F/1.7 large aperture, the F1 Play promises great details in daytime, but also hopefully bright night photos without noise.
UMIDIGI F1 Play is powered by Helio P60 AI SoC like the F1, but with 6GB bigger RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It offers a 6.3-inch FHD+ waterdrop full screen using in-cell LTPS technology. The F1 Play packed with 5150mAh huge battery with 18W fast charging and it’ll sure keep it on for a long time. Apart from the 48MP + 8MP dual rear camera setup, it comes with a 16MP high-resolution selfie camera. It also runs on Android 9 Pie OS. Here are the main differences between UMIDIGI F1 Play and the F1.
So far we have no real word about the exact pricing of the UMIDIGI F1 Play, but allegedly it should similar as the F1, so around the $200 mark. The phone should be hitting the global market at the end of March and to promote it the brand is already offering a nice giveaway event, where you can win one of 10 free pieces of UMIDIGI F1 Play. So check it out on the official website.
