Strong and rugged with a powerful dimensty soc backing it as well
Umidigi has offered a compact and rugged mediatek powered 5G series. Decent price point as well.
The integration of a Dimensity 900 soc makes this already amazing phone even more so
64MP introductory one with an f/1.8 lens is going to click some good pictures I guess, and Mediatek processor is going to facilitate it well.
