Although the UmiDigi Z Pro will be coming with the older version of Android OS which is Android 6.0 Marshmallow, UMI claims that it will surely get an OTA update for Android 7.0 Nougat as soon as it’s launched. Which will most likely boost its performance.

Large Battery Capacity

The power supply of UmiDigi Z Pro is not something we see on regular smartphones, it is powered by a large 3780 mAh Li-ion non-removable battery which will give around 312 hours of standby time on 3G networks.

Not only this but, it will be coming with a newer version of adaptive quick charge developed by MediaTek called as ‘MediaTek Pump Express Plus’ which is said to further enhance the speed of charging.

Talking about the price tag the UmiDigi Z Pro 4G smartphone is priced at a rather higher side of the mid-range sector which is around $300.

Few More Interesting features

USB Type-C

This device comes with the USB type-C port which certainly makes it a lot easier to plug in the data cable or USB making it quick and more suitable for the data transmission as well as charging speed both are heavily affected by the presence of a type C port.

The touch ID found in the UmiDigi Z Pro is far better and faster than any normal Fingerprint sensor, thanks to its Microarray 3D fingerprint sensor, only a gentle touch is enough for it to recognize and the smartphone immediately unlocks.

A dedicated chip encrypts all the data of fingers and no one can access that, not even you.

The UmiDigi Z Pro 4G smartphone will be launched before or in the mid of summer and according to us it’s a great buy for all type of users, as it offers great value for money and if you can get it under a good deal which will be around $250 then we would suggest you go for it without any hesitation as the UmiDigi Z Pro stands very good in features, looks and performance as well.
