The recently unveiled UMIDIGI A9 is a cheaper version of the same brand’s entry-level A9 Pro smartphone. The A9 series is the world’s first Android 11 smartphone with an infrared temperature sensor, 6.53 “large screen, MediaTek Helio G25 processor, and a 5150 mAh battery. Global pre-sale will begin on January 1, 2021, for $99.99.
Without a doubt, pure Android 11 is one of the important features of the new smartphone. There are very few entry-level devices running Android 11 right now. But much more interesting in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic is the infrared temperature measurement, the same as in the high-end Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design smartphone. The manufacturer focuses on this in the presented advertising video:
The UMIDIGI A9 has a 6.53-inch HD + waterdrop notch display. The screen has a resolution of 720 × 1600 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20: 9. It is an inexpensive device with a triple rear camera: a main 13MP module, an 8MP ultra-wide angle, and a 2MP depth sensor. An 8-megapixel sensor also represents the front camera.
The phone has a 12nm MediaTek Helio G25 processor with a clock speed of up to 2 GHz. The device includes 3 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64 GB of built-in flash memory. The phone is powered by a 5150mAh battery charged via the USB-C port, and a 10W charger is included in the box. It also has a hardware shortcut key and a triple SIM and memory card slot.
