Already very soon, on January 22, 2018, the preliminary sale of the UMIDIGI S2 Lite will begin. The smartphone looks quite decent, at least on paper. This is a cheap smartphone of the middle class, which will meet the expectations of most users.
The UMIDIGI S2 Lite will be equipped with a 6-inch Sharp display, proportions 18: 9 (2: 1) and HD + resolution, that is 1440 × 720 pixels (268 ppi), which is also covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The heart of the device will be eight a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750T (8x ARM Cortex-A53; 28nm) processor with a Mali-T860 MP2 graphics chip. Specification is supplemented with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory with the possibility of expansion with a microSD card with a maximum capacity of 256 GB.
UMIDIGI S2 Lite will also offer you a dual main camera (16 megapixels (sensor OmniVision OV16880) + 5 megapixels with aperture f / 2.0), a 5 megapixel front camera, a fingerprint scanner (on the back) and a second-generation face recognition system. Communication in the smartphone will provide the following modules: Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n, LTE (with support for the B20 800 MHz band), GPS and Glonass, as well as USB port type C with USB OTG support.
Unfortunately, there is no standard headphone jack (its role was taken by USB port Type C).

UMIDIGI S2 Lite immediately out of the box will run the operating system Android 7.0 Nougat, but the manufacturer promises to upgrade to Android 8.1 Oreo.
