After releasing Umidigi A3 on its official website, Umidigi, the company has also hinted at two more smartphones – the Umidigi A3 Pro and the Umidigi A3 Max. In this review however, we pay attention to to the Umidigi A3 Max which will be released before Christmas.
Here’s another smartphone that tells us just how the Umidigi brand is growing. The company is making sure that it improves in three key areas: display, camera, and processor features. You will see how that too is reinforced in this review.
Design and Display of Umidigi A3 Max
Here we got a smartphone with a water drop screen. It comes with a massive 6.2 inches screen which is a little bigger than what analysts first anticipated. This display comes with Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5: 9 format. This serves to accentuate how great the smartphone is.
The smartphone is a bit higher than the A3 Plus and the lower edge is reduced to 4.25 mm. The display type is IPS LCD technology and it comes with 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution. It comes in blue and black colors.
Camera features for Umidigi A3 Max includes dual 20 MP plus 5 MP cameras. To the front for selfies, there is a single 16 MP camera. These cameras are fortified with the common camera features such dual-LED flash, HDR, Panorama, etc.
The video performance shows that there’s a possibility to record in super slow motion 480 fps. Furthermore, the front camera has an aperture lens f/2.0, beauty mode and 4-in-1 pixel feature.
These are infused for the production of high quality pictures and videos. It is expected that the recognition of scenes feature here in A3 Max will enable it to outperform the predecessor.
Hardware And Software
For the Umidigi A3 Max, performance is really stretched. Inside it is a new Helio P23 processor which is a rival of the Snapdragon 660. This chipset is fortified with Artificial Intelligence (AI) capacities. What this means is that the Helio P20 is reaching its goodbye days slowly.
