Announcement. UMIDIGI G2 and UMIDIGI C2 are simple $80 smartphones

The company has finally fully announced its cheap smartphones

What's funny, they started advertising them back in mid-December. I can still understand when expensive and interesting smartphones are teased bit by bit, teasing the public. And what is here?

About family ties.

1. UMIDIGI C2 and UMIDIGI G2 are essentially the same smartphone. The only difference is in the body. As far as official renders can tell, the C2 has a more rounded body, while the G2 is such a block.

2.Do not confuse UMIDIGI C2 with the 2017 model of the same name, which will now be called UMIDIGI C2 2017 in our catalog. (Congratulations to UMIDIGI, they solemnly join the host of mobile phone manufacturers who have run out of free alphanumeric combinations).


2. UMIDIGI C2 and UMIDIGI G2 can be considered the direct successors of last year's UMIDIGI C1 and G1 models. They just added a gigabyte of RAM, refreshed Android, and replaced the chipset.

Instead of the MediaTek MT6739, which is completely indecent at the present time, they also installed a quad-core, but still more powerful MediaTek Helio A22. We are waiting in AnTuTu in the region of one hundred thousand points.

Little memory. 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. However, they managed to squeeze the thirteenth Android into them. And, it seems, even a full-fledged, not Go Edition.

The screens are small. Diagonal 6.52″ (103 cm²), resolution 720×1600 (269 ppi).

The battery is not bad, at 5150 mAh. Charging unhurried - 10 watts.

The set of cameras is also quite trivial. 5 MP front, 13+2 MP rear.

From the pleasant - there are Type-C and dual-band Wi-Fi. But you will not find a fingerprint scanner and an NFC module here.

Although the official start of sales is scheduled only for March 20, smartphones have already appeared on AliExpress. The price, as you may have guessed from the title of this news, is more than humane - only $79.99 (₽6560).
