The UMIDIGI S2 Pro is the latest phone to be announced by the company and is one designed to pack in the specs. Resulting in a powerful phone in its own right. However, beyond the standard specs, the UMIDIGI S2 Pro is also a phone which features some of the newer and emerging technologies, such as facial recognition. Face ID, as UMIDIGI refers to it, is included on the UMIDIGI S2 Pro and the company has now released a new video showcasing how the feature works and what potential owners of the device can expect.
For example, while facial recognition at the base level provides unlock access to a smartphone, UMIDIGI notes how its implementation of the feature is extremely fast. The company explains this by detailing how its in-house developed solution records 128 different features of a user’s face when making a scan. This detailed facial impression allows the recognition software to work at an advanced level and provide accurate and instant results each time. In spite of the claimed super quick unlocking ability, UMIDIGI also explains that its solution is equally as safe. The company suggests that the software is so good at what it does, that it is not only able to differentiate the smartphone owner from others, but is also able to identify the smartphone owner in a dark room. Therefore, owners will be able to make use of the S2 Pro's Face ID even in the dark. Likewise, when they are wearing a mask as the software is still able to accurately identify the owner due to the number of facial features it records in the initial scan.
As for the rest of the details on this phone, the UMIDIGI S2 Pro features a 6-inch display along with a 2160 x 1080 resolution, equating to an 18:9 aspect ratio. Inside, the UMIDIGI S2 Pro comes loaded with up to 6GB RAM, up to 128GB storage, and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P25 SoC.
