by Dimitris Economou 0

The UMIDIGI A1 Pro that launched this month, sports the new MediaTek MT6739 SoC and became the world’s first smartphone with it. Many users interested in the performance of this chipset and how improved it is compared to the previous MT6737. What’s more, the A1 Pro went on presale today on Gearbest with a 1000pcs limited offer, starting at just $99.99. Keep reading for the full benchmark and presale details.

As you can see from the short hands-on video, the device does quite good on both Antutu and Geekbench benchmark tests thanks to the MT6739 SoC and stock Android 8.1 Oreo. Also, it supports dual 4G LTE in both slots simultaneously, which is an important feature for the new chipset.

Conclusion

The UMIDIGI A1 Pro is a nice device with some great features for its price tag and made it to the Top 5 Chinese Smartphones under $100 in April occupying the top spot! The modern specs like the MT6739 SoC and the 5.5″ HD+ 18:9 display give additional value to the rest of the specs like the 3GB of RAM and the dual 4G/LTE support on both SIMs simultaneously. The latter is a big deal in the market as it is considered as an innovation of communication technology and you can hardly find something similar on other smartphones. That is until the MT6739 becomes available to more manufacturers of course. Additionally, the A1 Pro can function in almost every country thanks to its extensive supported network bands.

Other features like the 18:9 full-screen, 85% screen-to-body ratio, 13MP/5MP dual camera, and face unlock make it even more attractive in the under $100 price category. As UMIDIGI believes that useful technology is designed for all, the A1 Pro also sports the popular Type-C port and 5V/2A quick charge that can charge it within 120 minutes. What’s more, while many manufacturers blindly follow questionable fashion and produce smartphones without 3.5 mm audio jack, UMIDIGI decided not to follow the trend and put the convenience of users at first place. So it comes with the traditional headset mini-jack and FM Radio!
