From UMIDIGI or formerly UMI one can already say that they imagine interesting telephones for the broad masses. So it is also with the new UMIDIGI Z1 / Z1 Pro that is now pre-orderable and will soon be available.
The subscription via an import dealer is, as usual, cheaper than via Amazon Germany. The current price starts at about €268.16 on Gearbest.com and you get as usual a 5.5-inch display with 1920 × 1080 pixels resolution.
In the Pro version, even an AMOLED display is used. In addition to the Helio P20, a massive 6 GB memory and 64 GB storage space are now available in the just 6.95mm thin smartphone (Pro model). In it was also a large 4000 mAh battery accommodated.
Umidigi Z1 and Z1 Pro: Design
Evil tongues claim that since the UMIDIGI Z the design of the newer telephones has hardly changed. The UMIDIGI C Note is a technically stripped-down version of the UMIDIGI Z / Pro in the same housing.
The new UMIDIGI Z1 also uses the well-known optics. I find this now less bad because I liked the design quite well. Creativity is nevertheless something else.
However, the inner values differ.
Umidigi Z1 and Z1 Pro: Display
In the brand new UMIDIGI Z1 or UMIDIGI Z1 Pro is a 5.5-inch full-HD (1920 × 1080 pixels) display, protected by Gorilla Glass 4. Finally even with a full-color AMOLED panel. Unfortunately, this is only the more expensive and flatter Pro model reserved. In the normal version, a Sharp IPS display is used.
The dimensions of the Pro model are the same as a piece of thick cardboard: just 6.95mm. The normal version is still at a slender 8.2mm thickness.
Umidigi Z1 and Z1 Pro: Hardware
The integrated Helio P20 (MTK6757) Octa core is not a high-end processor, but with its 2.3 GHz and the Mali-T880 GPU but nevertheless the 65,000 Antutu points. This is enough to play all the latest games in liquid form.
Umidigi Z1 and Z1 Pro: Cameras
The rest of the equipment is the same, so in both versions, the dual camera with a 13 megapixel Samsung S5K3L8 sensor and a further 5-megapixel sensor can be used. The front camera synonymous with 5-megapixel resolution. The fingerprint sensor has been implemented in the home button of the front.
The internal memory of 64GB is expandable up to 256 GB. Dual-sim and dual-use WLAN is possible. On GPS (Baidu, Glonass), LTE (volume 20), Bluetooth 4.1, USB-Type-C and the 3.5mm headphone input can also be accessed.
Umidigi Z1 and Z1 Pro: Battery
The highlight (especially in the flatter Pro model) is the integrated 4000 mAh battery. The should be easy for some hours of screen-on-time. Fast Charge (2.5A / 1.67A 5V / 7V / 9V) is supported for fast charging.
As an operating system, of course, the very latest Android 7.0 can be used.
Umidigi Z1 and Z1 Pro: Reviews / Experiences / Opinions
There are currently no reviews for this artist. This will certainly not be long. If everything works out, we also get a copy of the UMi Z1 and of course will also test this again in detail. Visually both models can convince, technically as well. If now runtime, processing, and software are just as good, nothing should go wrong. 😉
