You already have known quite a few about the new flagship from UMIDIGI. Thanks to the leaked specs and renderings, you already know the phone will have a high power-efficient chipset, an awesome camera, elegant smooth design and a super thin body packed with big battery. Now finally here are the officially released details of UMIDIGI Z1 and Z1 Pro that you’re expecting to know.
UMIDIGI Z1 & Z1 Pro Display and Design
UMIDIGI has always put a premium on design, same on the Z1 & Z1 Pro. In press leaked photos by the company, the handset’s rear design moves the camera to the upper left corner like on the iPhone, rather than keeping it centered. The antenna lines remain, meaning the back is made of aluminum and not glass. Although on the front, UMIDIGI embraces the bezel-less features for the left and right sides, that all-screen bezel-less phone from UMIDIGI (Crystal) is set to be released later this year. But with UMIDIGI Z1 & Z1 Pro, you still can get a silky bezel-less-like hand feeling and display mode. Apart, a 5.5” Full HD 1920×1080 resolution display, pill-shaped home button/fingerprint sensor and the 3.5mm headphone jack on the top edge of the device is present. What’s noticeable is the different screen materials applied on Z1 and Z1 Pro. On UMIDIGI Z1, it’s the regular but decent 5.5” LCD display. But for Z1 Pro, UMIDIGI managed to apply AMOLED screen display, the latest and finest smartphone display panel so far with the superiority in color saturation, thinness and power consumption over LCD panels. Only a few smartphone manufacturers are able to apply AMOLED panels now, UMIDIGI is one of the forerunners. AMOLED is also one of the key reasons that Z1 Pro can go down to 6.95mm thinness, while the LCD screen Z1 is 8.2mm.
UMIDIGI Z1 & Z1 Pro Camera
Dual-lens camera are installed on both Z1 & Z1 Pro with the combination of 13MP + 5MP cameras. With more light absorbed and more clarity, the dual 13MP + 5MP rear camera captures lively life moments in the highest definition to empower your inner photographer. You can expect image quality and rendering power that every photo fanatic deserves from a top-of-the-line phone.

Now here comes one of the most concerned details of the device. Mediatek’s Highest power-efficient Processor, the MT6757 with authentic Octa-core clocked at 2.3Ghz is going to be used in UMIDIGI Z1 and Z1 Pro. The MediaTek MT6757 is built with 16nm process node and offers 25% better power efficiency, higher processing performance and our most advanced camera / video features to date.

Now here’s the screamer, a whopping 6.95mm thin body with 4000mAh mighty battery!
