Announcement. UMIDIGI C1 and UMIDIGI G1 are budget twin smartphones

Smartphones have appeared in a well-known Chinese online store
UMIDIGI C1
and
UMIDIGI G1.

Between themselves, they differ only in a set of colors and (very little) dimensions and weight. C1 is three grams lighter. Why dont know. Probably the body materials are different.

Here are all three colors of UMIDIGI C1.

And here is the UMIDIGI G1.

Smartphones run on Android 12 Go Edition.So, of course, they are not particularly powerful. Although, in fact, if it were not for the extremely weak chipset, then one could say that everything is not so bad. But MediaTek MT6739 in 2022 is ridiculous. 50-60 thousand points in AnTuTu.

Memory. 2 GB operational and 32 GB permanent. Plus, there is support for memory cards, but the tray is hybrid.

Screens of stars from the sky are missing, of course. But full-fledged big at least. Diagonal 6.52″ (103 cm²), resolution 720×1600 (269 ppi).

The battery is good, 5150 mAh. But no fast charging.

Cameras. The front has a resolution of 5 MP. There are two rear cameras, 13 + 2 MP - main and macro. It is better not to hope for too good quality of pictures.

There is no fingerprint scanner and NFC module, but there is dual-band Wi-Fi and even Type-C.

With the price, as usual, everything is complicated.Now AliExpress has a price tag of $99.19 (₽6830). But, according to the advertising banner, at some point the cost of devices should fall from $159.98 (₽11000) to $79.99 (₽5450). Here is the last number, it seems, and you need to consider the real cost of twin smartphones. Only when they will cost so much, unfortunately, is still unknown.
