Vividtech Pvt. Ltd, the official distributor of UMIDIGI smartphones in Nepal, has launched their latest premium mid-range smartphone- the UMIDIGI S2 Pro. The phone has a lot to offer like a near bezel-less design, dual-camera set up, some powerful specs and a water-resistant body. But is these features justifiable for the phone to be priced heavily at Rs 54,900? Well, before we answer that, let’s take a deeper look at what other things the phone brings to the table.
The UMIDIGI S2 Pro packs a 6.0 inch Full HD (2160×1080) TDDI display with an 18:9 near bezel-less design. The display is edged out by a 2.5D curved glass giving users a seamless experience. Encasing the internals of the phone is a metallic shell which not only looks good but also feels quite premium in the hands. Under the hood, the S2 Pro packs an octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 processor along with the Mali-T880 MP2 GPU. The processor is backed by a whopping 6GB of RAM and 128GB Of internal storage. The memory of the phone can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to an additional 128GB. The phone also supports dual sim cards but only at the expense of the memory card slot. And all this goodness comes packed in a water-resistant body.
In the camera department, the UMIDIGI S2 Pro packs a dual camera set up made by a f/2.0 13MP and a 5MP sensor. The phone also sports a 16MP front camera for all your social media ready selfies. And just sitting below the rear cameras is a fingerprint scanner embedded into the phone’s back panel. It also comes with face unlock for an additional layer of security. Moving on, at the software front, the S2 Pro runs a skinned version of Android 7.0 Nougat. And finally, powering the device all up is a large 5100mAh non-user removable battery. This coupled with support for Quick charge 2.0 will make for a prolonged battery life in the day to day use.
The UMIDIGI S2 Pro has a lot to offer and we are quite impressed with it. That said, the price of Rs 54,990 is outrageous to ask for the phone. Especially, when the phone is available internationally for $279.99 (offer, original price $339.99) from UMIDIGI’s own official website. This is a huge difference in the price which is just unfathomable! We wish UMIDIGI Nepal had thought it through and priced the phone more competitively. If the phone had been tagged at Rs 35,000, it would have been difficult for us not to recommend this phone.
