Both the UMIDIGI One and One Pro ship with 5.9-inch “FullSurface Display” panels, MediaTek’s Helio P23 chip, and 4GB of RAM, as well as a 16-megapixel front camera and a dual-lens system using a 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensor on the back. Dual stereo speakers are also part of the package, as is an unconventional Twilight finish that changes colors depending on the angle from which you’re looking at the device, though a Carbon Fiber body is another option attached to both handsets. The main differences between the two come in the form of their storage configurations, with the UMIDIGI One Pro offering 64GB of flash memory, whereas its counterpart features half of that figure, as well as NFC support which is only included in the higher-end device. The UMIDIGI One also boasts 10W fast charging, whereas the UMIDIGI One Pro is compatible with a 15W+18W quick charging solution. Both Android smartphones are 148.4 x 71.4 x 8.3mm in size and weigh 180g, thus being relatively compact for their display size.
