UMIDIGI Introduction

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 domain name, hahaha! Their explain that the name changing to reflect their upcoming products which are going to be more than smartphones.

According to UMIDIGI, these enable the UMIDIGI Z PRO “to focus the image AFTER shooting the picture, thanks to the very interesting re-focusing function, it is possible to shoot real and pure black and white photos of  DSLR quality, to have DSLR-level Bokeh effect, optical 2x zoom (3x digital), to shoot 3D photos and many other features“.
