UMIDIGI A5 Pro teardown video – triple camera and walnut killer revealed


The Chinese smart devices manufacturer UMIDIGI a week ago started the global sale of its latest entry-level beast, UMIDIGI A5 Pro with ultra wide angle triple angle at $99.99. In first two days of the sale, more than 10,000 units of the phone were sold and the A5 Pro now has rocked the budget phones market! The number is amazing for UMIDIGI, meaning UMIDIGI is chasing the other top Chinese brands like Huawei and Xiaomi in a fast pace.

Now, a teardown video for this new piece has been posted on YouTube and it reveals several interesting details about the UMIDIGI phone. From the video, first we can see the A5 Pro features a triple slot design and it can support dual 4G standby and an expandable microSD card at the same time. Then we found much adhesive which seals the glass back tight, so you need to heat up the back first to soften the adhesive then you can remove it. After removing the back glass panel, a 4150mAh battery is set inside.

The video further reveals that the remarkable feature on UMIDIGI A5 Pro, the ultra wide angle triple camera setup. As we can see, the triple camera includes a 16MP Sony IMX398 as the main sensor with f/1.8 large aperture, a 5MP depth lens to make bokeh effect and a 8MP 120° ultra wide angle lens to provide ultra wide angle mode. Unlike some other brand’s fake triple camera witho ut claiming the specific feature, all three lens on have their own function.

But UMIDIGI A5 Pro sports a better one, the Helio P23, with is proved can perform better than Snapdragon 450 and 625, as you can see the AnTuTu benchmark from the pic below.

In the end of the video, to show the ruggedness of UMIDIGI A5 Pro, UMIDIGI even use the A5 Pro to smash a walnut and it still remains intact.
