UmiDigi S2 Pro brings an all-screen design and solid specs at a good price

A couple of interesting trends took over the smartphone world in 2017. Big name companies such as Apple, Samsung, LG, and Huawei have all released avant-garde handsets that feature powerful dual-camera solutions and large, beautiful displays encompassed by extremely slim bezels.

Devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X, and LG V30 excited mobile tech fans around the globe, but the price tags that accompanied them certainly didn't invoke similar feelings. With its latest S2 Pro model, Chinese phone maker UmiDigi is trying to prove that well-rounded smartphones with modern features don't necessarily have to be expensive.

The UmiDigi S2 Pro is a metal-made smartphone that features a distinguishable all-screen design. On the front, there's a 6-inch FHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phone manages to achieve a large screen-to-body ratio thanks to its small front bezels. 

When it comes to hardware, the S2 Pro certainly doesn't disappoint. It's powered by an octa-core Mediatek Helio P25 processor clocked at 2.6 GHz, coupled with 6GB of RAM. There are 128GB worth of on-board storage, and if that's not enough, the handset also features microSD support of up to 256GB. This model also packs a massive 5,100mAh battery that is promised to last 2 days between charges with normal use. 

Another big highlight of this device is the dual-camera composition at the back. The 13MP Sony main camera is responsible for taking all the photos, while an assistive 5MP sensor is employed for depth perception. This combination allows for shallow depth-of-field/bokeh effects. The 16MP front snapper is enriched by various selfie modes. 

The handset is also splash resistant but lacks a headphone jack, so you'll have to make due with the USB Type-C port only. It's also worth pointing out that the S2 Pro features face recognition in addition to the fingerprint scanner on the back.

So, how much will the phone cost and when will it become available? Well, UmiDigi has set a $339.99 price tag for the S2 Pro (additional shipping and tax fees may apply), but right now, you can get it for even cheaper.

The manufacturer is doing a pre-sale event that will end on December 8th. During this period, the first 3,000 units are available for $299.99, a discount of $40. For more information on the promotion and the phone itself, feel free to follow the link below.

Getting real liberal with the all screen and bezeless descriptions on phones. Considering none really have that I wonder what they are going to call phone when they truly have all screen designs.......true bezeless, or true all screen........ it’s just like all the wireless providers that want to use 5G6G7G before it actually is appropriate.

I'm getting a little tired of it too. Bezel-less is sort of an appropriate term, if you look at as meaning less bezel rather than meaning no bezel, because it's true, all of these new phones have less bezel than before...just none of them truly have no bezel, so saying they're 'all-screen' is flat out bullcrap.

Don't waste your money. I have Umidigi S2 Pro. It has very low quality. The touch screen is very hard to use. Cheap plastic material with very poor build quality. The battery real capacity is not 5000mah. The battery is not detectable by battery software. Perhaps only 3000mah The camera is so blurry. You just get fuzzy pictures. Too many applications crashed instead of 6GB RAM. The worst thing it come without any guarantee. It' nothing but wasting my valuable money.
