UMIDIGI S2 4G Phablet with 6-inch screen and 6000 mAh Battery

In October of this year, UmiDigi S2 is released. It’s a unique smartphone combining a thin case, a large 6-inch screen and an impressive 6000 mAh battery in one device.

As expected, the novelty of UmiDigi has become the subject of the closest attention of the network media who remain busy writing about mobile technologies. However, we can’t deny that every average price ranged device can boast of this.

Key chips UmiDigi S2

• Large screen with a diagonal of 5.99 inches and non-standard resolution FullHD + 2160 × 1080 pixels (aspect ratio 18 to 9).

• Almost frameless design: very thin side frames and relatively small – above and below the display.

• Thin metal case – only 7.8 mm. For comparison, the Galaxy S8 Plus has a thickness of 8.1 mm.

• Dual main camera with sensors manufactured by Sony.

• NFC adapter.

• Support fast charging.

• And, of course, a battery of huge capacity – as much as 6000 mAh.


On the photo, UmiDigi S2 looks quite interesting. At first glance, this is quite a classic smartphone, but with very thin and almost indiscernible frames on the sides of the screen. It also has got protective glass with 2.5D-effect.

Apparently, it seems to have slightly reduced indentations from above and below the screen – a feature imitated from Samsung Galaxy S8. However, the Chinese company decided not to pursue fashion trends, but to implement the “transition” option.

Plastic inserts for antennas in the novelty UmiDigi implemented “in the image and likeness” of the Apple iPhone 7, it is now fashionable in the Celestial Empire. But the modules of the double main camera are built vertically in the middle, that’s above the round fingerprint scanner.

The volume control keys and the Power button on the UmiDigi S2 are on the right-side of the device, the USB Type-C socket is at the bottom where it is normally located. But the 3.5 mm jack for headphones and headsets, apparently, is not available.

Technical specifications of UmiDigi S2

Exact smartphone UmiDigi representatives have not yet been called. Based on the resolution of QHD +, we can assume the availability of either the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, or even the MediaTek Helio X30.

UmiDigi S2 is a middle price ranged “Chinese” model, that suggests another processor from MediaTek – Helio P25. However, it does not have official support for screen resolutions greater than FullHD 1080 × 1920 pixels.

It is also expected that S2 will receive 6Gb of RAM and a built-in storage capacity of 64 Gb. And the presence of an NFC adapter and fast charging was also stated above.
