UMIDIGI S5 Pro Comes with a Pop-up Camera and In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

Expected to Launch on April 8 Globally

After Huawei and Xiaomi launched their flagship, UMIDIGI is looking to launch its flagship offering in the guise of its premium S series phones. The phone will be called UMIDIGI S5 Pro based on the official tease on its official Twitter page. From the tease, the new UMIDIGI S5 Pro smartphone will be announced on 8th April. Without beating around the bush, here are a few things we can expect from the UMIDIGI S5 Pro.

Pop-up camera full screen instead of punch-hole cutout?

As we know, Huawei just launched its new premium flagship Huawei P40 Pro and it has a big pill-shaped punch-hole on the display, which is unacceptable for the true full-screen fans. Gladly, the UMIDIGI S5 Pro may end up being the rare flagship phone this year to come with a pop-up camera system. The official teaser from UMIDIGI has suggested that neither the phone will have a cutout inside the display for holding the camera, nor a notch. Instead, UMIDIGI will apply the pop-up mechanism to the Redmi S5 Pro to go for full-screen display experience.

In-display fingerprint sensor?

The UMIDIGI S5 Pro will most possibly end up getting an optical in-display fingerprint sensor. Why? Because the teaser image shows the phone having a regular sized power button instead of the bigger button on the side, the phone might end up having an optical in-display solution.

Powerful Processor?

According to the predecessor S3 Pro, a Pro phone from UMIDIGI’s S series would have the premium powerful chipset, which we can expect a flagship processor as UMIDIGI calls the S5 Pro the “Speed Flagship”. Rumors even suggest that the phone will be paired with a liquid cooling system and enormous storage.

Price and Launch Time?


The UMIDIGI S5 Pro is expected to launch on April 8 as confirmed by UMIDIGI in a post on Twitter, and the price would not be over US$300 as UMIDIGI’s strategy. Lastly, UMIDIGI’s new health-oriented smartwatch UMIDIGI UFit with SpO2 monitoring now is already available at only US$29.99.
