The UMIDIGI F2 has been officially announced today. The successor of the Chinese company’s hot-selling UMIDIGI F1 comes with a professional-grade 48MP quad rear camera, the same 32MP selfie camera as Huawei’s new premium flagship HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro, a big, 5150mAh battery, and the latest stock Android 10.
UMIDIGI F2 Specs and Features
A huge improvement over the previous-gen flagship is the cameras. The F2 sports a quad rear camera setup consisting of a 48MP main camera, a 13MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP macro camera, and a 5MP depth camera.
Also, a new night mode is available to capture better images in low light conditions while the ultra-wide mode helps you snap more content in a photo. Lastly, the macro mode is used when shooting something at a very close distance.
As for the selfie shooter, it sports a 32MP sensor -Samsung GD1- the same found in the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. It utilizes pixel binning for brighter and clearer selfies and users can also use AI beautify to enhance their facial features.
Hole Punch Display
The next step for the industry is moving from a notch display to a notchless and bezel-less design. The UMIDIGI F2 accomplishes that task by using a hole punch display.
The 6.53-inch FH+ display comes with a hole in the top left corner that hosts the 32MP front camera. The hole is just 4.5mm wide and it doesn’t distract the user at all.
UMIDIGI makes some very interesting devices and this one is the most powerful they’ve ever made as it sports the Helio P70 SoC backed by 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of fast UFS 2.1 internal storage. The faster UFS 2.1 flash storage was, until recently, only available in the premium flagship smartphones and now UMIDIGI brings it to the budget segment. In addition, the F2 comes with a big, 5150mAh battery with 18W fast charge support.
Nowadays, most phones look almost the same as there are little things you can do to differentiate your products from the competition. UMIDIGI manages to do that with the impressive Phantom Blue and Midnight Black colors and a curved texture on the back cover when the light hits on it.
Also, they’ve side-mounted the fingerprint sensor so the back cover looks clean and more consistent. Also, it sports a triple card slot so that you can use 2 SIM cards and Micro-SD card (up to 256GB) at the same time.
Android 10 and Other Features
Only a handful of devices can brag that they come with the latest Android 10 OS and UMIDIGI F2 is one of them. In addition, it is the first Android 10 smartphone that features a 48MP quad rear camera.
Moreso, the F2 is the first UMIDIGI that supports “OK Google” even when the screen is locked so you can activate the Google Assistant anytime. Of course, it supports multi-functional NFC and global network bands as well as dual-4G/LTE.
