UMIDIGI is the first tech company to provide infrared temperature measurement for entry-level smartphones, by UMIDIGI A7S and A9 Pro. By far, containing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic is still a major concern, and fever is one of the major symptoms of COVID-19. That’s the reason why you see non-contact forehead thermometers being used in many places today.
Sure, a smartphone’s infrared thermometer sensor might not be as accurate as conventional thermometers, but they can take the temperature of many people at a time. And UMIDIGI claims that it took much effort to improve the accuracy of its infrared thermometer sensor, making it very close to conventional thermometers. Let’s take a look at this UMIDIGI A9 Pro’s infrared thermometer showcase video to learn more.
The infrared thermometer sensor is integrated into the camera system of the UMIDIGI A9 Pro. To take readings, all you have to do is launch the app and hold the phone on top of somebody’s forehead. The entire process has been documented in the video. And we can see all the readings of the infrared thermometer sensor are quite close to the conventional thermometer’s.
UMIDIGI A9 Pro Specifications
Of course, we understand no one would buy the UMIDIGI A9 Pro for its temperature taking capability alone. So, here go the specs: Sony 48MP quad rear camera, Sony 24MP selfie camera, up to 6GB + 128GB with Helio P60 processor, 6.3″ FHD+ display, and glass back & metal frame premium design. All of these are only sold for a very affordable price, starting at $129.99 all over the world.
UMIDIGI A9: Upcoming Cheaper Version
Recently, it’s said the cheaper version of the popular A9 Pro, UMIDIGI A9 is going to launch soon. According to the render, the A9 also comes with an infrared thermometer sensor, integrated into the triple camera setup. The price is expected to be under $100.
To celebrate the holiday season, the company is running a huge giveaway, a total of 50 winners who can get a UMIDIGI smartphone or smartwatch for free. You can join the giveaway and learn more on UMIDIGI’s official website.
