Umidigi A3: Features, Specifications and Price

Chinese OEMs are currently the pioneers of the budget phone market, and as the competition gets stiffer, the quality of phones get a little bit better.

One of such device that has entered the Nigerian market is the Umidigi A3. Despite releasing an entry level device, it is bold enough to challenge the infinix and tecno dominated market with the 4G enabled A3.

Design and Display

One look at the Umidigi A3 and you wouldn’t feel like you are looking at a budget device as the device was made to look like an iPhone X clone giving it a beautiful design. The front and back 2.5D curved glass finishing protects it from scratch.

The device is not bezel-less, but the bezels are kept minimal as the top to accommodate the camera and sensors. There is also a camera cut out at the back and a fingerprint sensor. The speaker is located at the bottom alongside the USB type C port.

The A3 has 5.5 inch IPS LCD with 18:9 aspect ratio and a 720 x 1440 pixel resolution


Umidigi definitely took the camera aspects of the device seriously as they added a 12 MP + 5 MP dual camera sensor to it for clear shots. It is capable of delivering 1080p videos at 30fps. There is also an LED flash. For selfie, you get an 8 MP shooter.

Hardware Components (Processor and Storage)

For processing power, you get the MediaTek MT6739 quad-core chipset with 1.5 GHz clock speed. Fair enough for a budget device but also strong enough to allow dual 4G VoLTE connectivity. The PowerVR GE8100 clocked at 570 MHz handles graphics.

The A3 also comes with 2 GB RAM space and 16 GB storage space that can be expanded to 256 GB using a memory card. That should be enough to handle multi-tasking and minor file storage.

Battery and OS

The A3 comes with a 3300 mAh battery and runs stock Android 8.1 OS out of the box. Umidigi also releases periodic OS updates.
