UMIDIGI A1, world's first MediaTek MT6739 based Android 8.1 smartphone with WorldMode dual 4G under $100 is going to be released this spring.

The detailed specs are not yet available but we already know, the UMIDIGI A1 will be an approximately 5.0-inch size (pocket and one-hand friendly) smartphone with 5.5 inch 18:9 aspect ratio HD+ full screen.
Thanks to the WorldMode (global) dual 4G capability, it will be able to be used on both European and American LTE networks beside many other regions and carriers of the world, both SIM-cards at the same time with VoLTE support.

The price is expected to be around or even under $100, while this new gadget features 2GB RAM and 16GB storage extendable with microSD card.

Save your bucks and Go high! - Android 8.1 Go edition is able to get the most out of the MT6739 processor by using as least as possible resources by the system. As a result, you'll enjoy a much higher performance and more free storage space what you'd expect from this hardware combination.
The A1 will also feature a type-C USB port with 5V/2A fast charging, that you've never seen before in this price range.

UMIDIGI A1 will definitely redifine the entry level category by offering the best possible features and performance to the most cost-conscious smartphone users.
Stay tuned, further details coming soon.


UPDATE: The UMIDIGI A1 as A1 Pro will feature 3GB RAM and will be shipped with stock Andoird 8.1 since that amount of RAM is quite enough to support a fully functional Android system.

Got my A1 PRO. Very nice phone. but I have some requests.

Next update:
- please remove the big 3G and 4G next to the signal-icon
- add Night Light settings
- add Ambient display to light-up the display when messages are coming (alternative for notification-light)
- implement Google's May and/or June security update

Even S2 Pro has good resolution but if I can't use it, why I would buy this brand?!
YouTube is oka ...

It's definitely about the weak optimization of the Netflix video strream. It's highest resolution is only 720p even on a high performance desktop PC if you use the Chrome browser.

I think that's not Netflix problem, because all my previous cell phone devices are working well in ...

On the S2 pro I can get an about 720p but over compressed quality, the same as what you can get on a desktop computer in Chrome browser. So that's also a question, why 720p is the max resolution in Chrome on a desktop machine while you can get 4K in Microsoft Edge, using the same machine. Maybe you didn't have a MediaTek based smartphone before, or they had smaller srcreen and you could realize the difference.

Very pretty yes but...are Umidigi forgetting other new de ...

Hi,
You can install the latest Basic Edition ROM to get a near to stock android experience. Currently an Oreo upgrade for the S2 Pro is not planned, but later it might be possible to be released if it makes sense, if that can be a more stable and featureful system.
