There’s no doubt Umidigi is among the upcoming phone brands and has launched a lot of devices including the Umidigi Bison, and the new-generation Umidigi A7 Pro.

The Umidigi A9 Pro is equipped with great specifications when it comes to display, cameras, processors, or even storage, and with a 4150mAh battery to crown it.

Also, this latest Umidigi smartphone is among the few devices to offer a stock Android experience after the Nokia 5.4 and Oukitel C21.

The design of the Umidigi A9 Pro is something we called flagship-like aesthetics as it comes with a glass construction on both sides with 158.7 x 74.9 x 8.6 mm dimensions and a solid metal frame on the rear. This is a similar design to the A7 Pro but with a few improvements and added weight of 205g which might sound heavy for some fans but adds to the premium feel of the phone.

The front and back glass are 2.5D, meaning that the glass is slightly curved at all edges and the phone is available in either Onyx Black or Forest Green colors. The phone’s back panel is flat and clean with a premium look. The rectangular quad-camera set-up on the top left will easily draw your attention because of its larger than necessary bump, making you rely on the provided silicone case for protection. Also, besides the camera is the fingerprint sensor which is followed by the UMIDIGI brand logo below. Fortunately, the infrared thermometer and flash are perfectly placed in the same position as the cameras.

Flipping the phone to the front, you have a full-screen display with a U-shaped waterdrop notch that contains the selfie camera and thin edges on the sides. This is one of the bezel-less displays we’ve come across but it was interrupted by a small chin at the bottom.

As for the connection ports, there’s a USB-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack both of which are at the bottom with the speaker grill. The buttons are in the usual position on the right while the SIM card and SDcard slot are on the left.

When it comes to design, there’s nothing to complain about as this is one of the best you can find for this price. Of course, this is a very beautiful and elegant design with a bit of a copy of the previous generation’s aesthetics.

By mid-range standards, if you’re talking about the budget phones, the display will be IPS LCD, and this is what Umidigi A9 Pro offers. Also, the 6.3-inch size is not bad as it’s quite large with a 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution that gives you sharp, bright, and saturated colors that are wonderful for streaming videos on YouTube or Netflix.

Also, you’ll notice a teardrop notch on the display with a 19.5: 9 ratio and screen coverage of 92.7%. In addition, there’s a 409 PPI pixel density, making you not to see any pixels on the display from a close distance.

However, this is not the best screen in the market as it lacks a refresh rate, but in the budget category, you’ll get more than what you paid for. Fortunately, this display is good for media consumption, notwithstanding whether you’re browsing, playing games, or even watching videos.

One of the key selling points of the Umidigi A9 Pro is the cameras. Their specifications on paper are outstanding likewise on performance.

On the rear, there’s a quad-camera set-up that consists of a 48-MP Sony lens which you’ll get when you purchase the 6GB /128GB variant. As for the 4GB and 64GB version, you’ll be getting a 32-MP Sony lens as the primary shooter.

However, the rest of the cameras remain the same with a 16-MP wide-angle lens, 5-MP macro lens, and 5-MP depth sensor. Upfront, you’re getting a Sony 24-MP ultra-clear camera with f/2.0 aperture that comes with several amazing modes to choose from.

So far, like we earlier mentioned, the technical specifications are great on paper likewise in performance. Under good lighting, the Umidigi A9 Pro can take good pictures with lots of details and beautiful color saturation. However, the main issue comes in the night photos, details are lost with lack of quality, but still good considering the price.

Umidigi A9 Pro: Hardware, Performance, and Software

When it comes to performance, the Umidigi A9 Pro is equipped with a bit old MediaTek Helio P60 chipset. However, this might seem outdated to you as it was to us but we found out it’s an excellent processor with powerful performance and delivers a hassle-free experience when multi-tasking, gaming, watching videos, or even browsing with multiple Chrome tabs open.

Also, the gaming performance is great too, thanks to the integrated Mali G72 graphics. However, this depends on the type of game you want to play as there is some delay in high-end games like Call of Duty and PUGB Mobile. Fortunately, you can adjust the game to the minimum graphics settings to get a perfect gaming experience.

As for the storage space, Umidigi has equipped dual storage options consisting of a 4GB /64GB variant and a 6GB /128GB version. These are large storage options that lets you download and install applications or take photos more freely with an option to expand up to 256GB via an external SDcard. However, we prefer buying the higher version as it’s more productive for multi-tasking and suitable for gaming, plus you’re getting a higher 48-MP primary camera.

On the software side, Umidigi A9 Pro runs on the latest stock Android OS. This offers you a lot of features and customization options including Dark mode, changing of the app icon to your taste, Game mode, and many others.

Unlike most phones, the Umidigi A9 Pro is equipped with an infrared temperature sensor that’s located on the rear camera module. This allows you to check body temperature by pointing the sensor towards the person’s forehead or any hot surface. However, we found out this is not as accurate as a custom thermometer but it’s surely one of its kind since it’s not a medical device. Fortunately, the temperature readings are very close to the medical device and it’ll give you a hint on how to administer to the patient.

On the battery side, the Umidigi A9 Pro is equipped with a 4150mAh Li-Po battery cell. If you’re a moderate user, you’re getting nothing less than 24hours of battery time depending on how often you open the screen, make calls, or read messages. When it comes to charging, there’s a 10W fast charger in the box, which is not that fast, but better than the basic 5W charger. However, it takes close to 3 hours to fully charge the device from 0 – 100%.

Price of Umidigi A9 Pro

As of the time of this writing, the Umidigi A9 Pro is currently available on for ₦65,000 (roughly $166) for the 4GB + 64GB variant and ₦77,000 (about $195) for the bigger 6GB and 128GB version. This is a very fair good price for a phone with these specs and we won’t expect you to miss out on this great deal.
