Announcement. UMIDIGI F3 - now with support for 5G networks

Smartphone UMIDIGI F3 was presented to the public in early May. (Together with the younger brothers UMIDIGI F3S and UMIDIGI F3 SE). Now the cheerful family has replenished with one more model, UMIDIGI F3 5G.

This time, for a change, everything is simple and logical. UMIDIGI F3 5G is almost an exact copy of fellow UMIDIGI F3 4G. The differences are clear and obvious:

  • Another chipset.
  • There is support for 5G networks.
  • Bluetooth is more recent.
  • Android is more recent.
  • Fewer colors - no blue ones.

Everything else is identical. Even the memory is exactly the same.

The chipset is the super-popular MediaTek Dimensity 700, so we expect 300-350 thousand points in AnTuTu. Compared to the ancient Helio P70 used in UMIDIGI F3 4G, the progress is clear.

There is a lot of memory. 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. There is a tray for a memory card, but not a separate one - you have to sacrifice a second SIM card.

The screen is large, but simple and very elongated. Diagonal 6.7 ″ (106 cm²), low resolution - 720 × 1650 (269 ppi). There is no increased refresh rate.

The battery is excellent, 5150 mAh. The charging speed is slightly increased - 18 watts.

Cameras. Front camera with a resolution of 16 MP plus a rear trio of 48 + 8 + 5 MP (main camera, wide-angle, macro). We do not expect photo masterpieces.

There is a side fingerprint scanner, dual-band Wi-Fi, Type-C, standard audio output.

The official start of sales is scheduled for August 22. Smartphone pages have already appeared on AliExpress, and at once in the amount of three pieces
three). The current price is a bit inhumane, $363.62 (₽26,100). I think that by the time sales begin, they will draw something more interesting.
