After its flagships UMIDIGI S3 Pro and UMIDIGI F1 Play and its battery beast UMIDIGI Power, the Chinese smart devices maker UMIDIGI launched its new entry-level phone with ultra-wide angle triple camera, the UMIDIGI A5 Pro today, following the company’s goal to make professional smartphone photography affordable for everyone. The global sale of the UMIDIGI A5 Pro will exclusively start at AliExpress UMIDIGI Official Store on May 21 at 7 AM GMT. UMIDIGI promised that the open sale price will shake the smartphone market and surprise everyone(specific price will be unveiled later).
Following the great success of its UMIDIGI A3 and A3 Pro, UMIDIGI now presents a new budget device with ultra-wide angle triple camera and a triple card slot. Before, the triple camera setup with the ultra-wide angle lens was only found in high priced flagship mobiles. It’s amazing that the company brings the ultra wide-angle photography, such a great feature to the budget segment. Let’s see what are the specs of the new UMIDIGI A5 Pro.
The UMIDIGI A5 Pro features a 6.3-inch waterdrop full screen with FHD+ resolution which is 2280 x 1080. Both, the in-cell LTPS display and the back of the phone are protected by 2.5D curved glass. The waterdrop notch looks slightly different than the notch we know from other UMIDIGI devices. Yet the A5 Pro is nearly bezel-less and reaches a screen-to-body ratio of 92.7%.
The top feature of UMIDIGIs new entry-level phone is the camera. It’s a triple setup containing a 16 MP Sony IMX398, a main sensor with F/1.8, an 8 MP 120° ultra wide-angle camera and a 5 MP depth lens. With this phone, you will get the best shots in this price range.
With 8.2mm the phone is very thin even though it got a 4150 mAh battery which can be charged via 10 Watt quick charge. The newest Android 9.0 Pie Stock system runs on an MTK Helio P23 octa-core SoC with 4GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage, with up to 256GB expansion via a dedicated microSD slot. The UMIDIGI A5 Pro got a triple slot design (Dual SIM + Dedicated microSD Slot), supporting dual 4G VoLTE as well as global LTE bands.
