UMi announces that it will launch an upgraded version of it’s, what I can describe as one of the best smartphone released by any unknown Chinese phone manufacturer, UMi Z, called UMIDIGI Z PRO. According to the official blog of UMi, the UMIDIGI Z PRO will be launched at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, I have put it on my calendar on the left!
If you’re a UMi follower, you will notice that UMi created a page on its official website about their logo, changing from UMi to, which is the same as its official website domain name, UMIDIGI. A little bit out of topic, I think they need to change their name simply because they can’t get their hands on umi.com domain name, hahaha! Their explain that the name changing to reflect their upcoming products which are going to be more than smartphones.
