After releasing the successful UMIDIGI A7 Pro early this year, the company today announced its successor UMIDIGI A9 Pro, with a solid upgrade on camera and performance. The A9 Pro features a Sony 48MP quad camera setup (32MP Sony main camera for the 4GB + 64GB variant), Helio P60 processor with up to 6GB + 128GB, as well as an infrared thermometer sensor. The phone will be available from only $119.99 on October 16.
Flagship Camera Setup, Entry-level Phone Price
UMIDIGI’s A series is famous for its very high value for money in the entry-level segment. Now the UMIDIGI A9 Pro(6GB + 128GB) first introduces the Sony 48MP main camera to the phones at around $120. As we know, the Sony 48MP sensor used to be applied to the expensive flagship phones. The A9 Pro comes with a solid quad rear camera setup, which contains a SONY 48MP main camera(32MP one for the 4GB + 64GB variant), 16MP ultra-wide angle camera, 5MP depth lens and a 5MP macro lens. On the front, it features a Sony 24MP selfie camera.
Infrared Temperature Sensor to Take Body Temperature
A temperature sensor would normally sound like a niche smartphone feature, but in the era of a pandemic when a high temperature could be a sign of being ill with COVID-19, it could be a helpful tool to have on hand. It’s glad to see that UMIDIGI also puts the infrared temperature sensor on the entry-level UMIDIGI A9 Pro, like the recently launched A7S. With the new sensor, the handset can display temperature readings after being held up to people’s faces and wrists.
One of the Most Powerful Phones in this Price Range
UMIDIGI A9 Pro is powered by the high-performance octa-core Helio P60 chipset, scoring about 170,000 in AnTuTu v8, which makes it a performance beast in this price range. The phone offers 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB memory options, and both feature LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.1 flash storage.
Other Great Features You can’t Ignore
Besides the high performance and the solid camera setup, the A9 Pro comes with other great features in this price range. It boasts a 6.3″ FHD+ full screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080. Both front and back panel is 2.5D glass while the middle frame is metal. On the bottom it has a Type-C port to charge the 4150mAh battery. The phone has a 3-card slot for up to 256GB expandable storage. It runs stock Android 10 and supports global bands like other UMIDIGI phones.
