UMIDIGI announced the price for its new phone UMIDIGI X, at $179.99.

Umdigi say it’s the most affordable smartphone with in-screen fingerprint sensor added in. The phone will start the global sale along with UMIDIGI’s new wireless earbuds Upods at the UMIDIGI Official Store on Aliexpress on August 26th (7 am GMT).

UMDIGI’s impetus is that they’re going up against Xioami’x Mi A3. Much of their marketing material has been comparing the two devices spec for spec. The budget smartphone, has made some bold claims stating that the fingerprint scanner is faster than the Galaxy Note 10.

The phone will also come with a 48MP (48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, 5MP depth) triple camera with AI lens in the rear. The 48MP main camera has a half-inch sensor with f/1.79 large aperture and 1.6μm (4in1) super-pixel that should perform well both in low-light and daylight conditions. The 8MP camera with the ultra-wide-angle lens on the other hand, is capable of capturing a wide view. The 5MP depth sensor is required for accurate bokeh shots. All this hardware combined with AI algorithms allow for features like super night mode and AI scenes detection on the phone. The selfie shooter is 16MP and also uses AI to improve selfies.

The X also comes with Helio P60 SoC backed by 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The battery is at 4150mAh and supports 18W fast charging. UMIDIGI X runs on pure stock Android 9 Pie and a planned update to Android Q is coming according to the company. The phone supports dual-4G VoLTE as well as global LTE bands.

Global sale of the UMIDIGI X together with new truly wireless earbuds Upods will kick off on August 26 on Aliexpress. The first 1000 units will also come with Upods for free.
