UMiDIGI Z Pro is not holding back on camera department. It features dual 13MP Cameras with SONY IMX258 sensors on the back with Dual ISP laser and with a 13MP Samsung sensor with Soft Light on the front for perfect selfies. UMIDIGI Z Pro is the first ever Mediatek device which reaches the elite of dual camera phones. Only very few models worldwide from very well known brands offer this kind of quality of the sensors, but their price is way higher.

What is the purpose of a dual camera phone?

Right now, there are two implementations of dual camera setups. The first is the one Apple uses in iPhone 7 Plus, where the secondary lens is a telephoto that is used for optical zoom as well as for measuring depth of field around the object to create a Bokeh effect. The second, is the approach of Huawei, where the second lens has a B&W sensor that helps in low light conditions as well as making colors more vibrant and accurate.

UMiDIGI chose to go with the first approach. So, when you shoot a portrait for example, the second lens will measure the depth of field around the main object. And then -with the help of software- it will blur the background creating a Bokeh effect.
