First look at the UMIDIGI A5 Pro: budget phone with flagship design


In the last few years there was a huge race in the smartphone market. Who sells the phone with the most RAM? Who builds the fastest processor? Who reaches the highest resolution? The result? Phones became more and more expensive. Today you can find mobiles for more than US $1000. But smartphone brands forgot about people that can’t or don’t want afford this.

UMIDIGI, a Chinese brand just realized that and decided to build a phone for these people. Today they showed the result – The UMIDIGI A5 Pro – in a first appearance video. Let’s check out the unveiled specs and the great possibility UMIDIGI gives to customers to get one of their phones for FREE!

As we can see in the video UMIDIGI presents the A5 Pro with a gorgeous build quality. Even if the price will be less than US $150 they used 2.5 D curved glass on both sides of the phone edged by a metal frame which is unbelievable regarding the price. The back cover is available in space grey or breathing crystal.

It seems like UMIDIGI understood what the main point of a phone is – Staying connected. That’s why they not only included a common hybrid dual Sim tray but a triple slot for one microSD- and two Sim cards which support VoLTE with 33 global LTE bands.

They didn’t show the display in the Hands-On video but concerning to previous press releases it will be a FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display with waterdrop notch. That’s a big advantage compared to phones in a similar price range like the Redmi 7 (HD+, 1520 x 720).

What we can see on the back is really surprising as triple camera sensors were reserved for expensive camera phones in the past. But following its company statement “Redefine the budget phone photography” UMIDIGI broke that rule and put a 16 MP Sony ultra-wide-angle triple camera and 4150 mAh big battery in the budget device. That’s great because mobiles are replacing cameras more and more so you will be prepared for the future.

The fingerprint sensor completes the package and will help to save your data but unlock the phone fast. And the phone it still remains 3.5mm audio jack!

UMIDIGI will officially launch the A5 Pro with full specs on May 8th and the global open sale date will be unveiled after official announcement. Now you can add the UMIDIGI A5 Pro to cart at AliExpress on UMIDIGI official store, UMIDIGI promised that there will be a super surprise for the product.
