A robust smartphone, but with an elegant and sporty design
Rugged mobiles don’t necessarily have to be ugly and this UMIDIGI BISON has come to prove it. It has a 6.3-inch LCD screen with Full HD + resolution that occupies almost the entire front thanks to its selfie camera being in a subtle drop-shaped notch. On the back it has a design similar to those of gaming smartphones, but with a rectangular camera module typical of today’s high-end.
It is perfect for taking anywhere and taking photos, as it is IP68 and IP69K certified. On the one hand, IP68 means that this mobile is resistant to dust and can be submerged up to 1.5 meters underwater for 30 minutes. Instead, the IP69K certification tells us that the UMIDIGI BISON passed high-temperature steam washing tests and that it can withstand water at high pressures (up to 100 bar) and at high temperatures (up to 80 ° C).
To top it all off, the UMIDIGI BISON has a built-in barometer to help you measure atmospheric pressure on your adventures. For this reason, it is the perfect mobile to record outdoor activities or sports, as well as risk situations.
The UMIDIGI BISON is outstanding in the photographic section thanks to its Sony cameras
This UMIDIGI BISON not only offers you the necessary resistance to capture moments outdoors but also good photographic quality. And it is that it has a quad rear camera, whose main sensor is a 48 MP Sony that we have already seen that gives very good results in other recent high-end devices.
This sensor is accompanied by a 16 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor that offers a 120 ° angle of view and two 5 MP sensors: a macro to focus from 2 cm away and a depth one for portrait mode.
In this way, the UMIDIGI BISON gives you a very versatile main camera that is complemented by a 24 MP front camera (also made by Sony) that allows you to take epic selfies and video calls in great image quality.
Use it however you want! It has two
The power of this UMIDIGI BISON is provided by the Helio P60 processor that has 8 cores at 2.0 GHz. This is accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage in the LPDDR4X and UFS 2.1 formats, respectively. In addition, it has an integrated liquid cooling system. All added up, this means that the UMIDIGI BISON offers great performance with whatever you put it to do and it doesn’t get hot easily.
As if that were not enough, it has a 5000 mAh battery (supports fast charging of 18W) that is enough to give the mobile an autonomy of more than an intense day. It also has two physical buttons that you can customize however you want. For example, you can choose to press one of these buttons to make an emergency call or take a photo (ideal for when you’re underwater). In short, the UMIDIGI BISON offers you the necessary specifications so that you can do what you want with it.

At the moment, UMIDIGI has not revealed how much the UMIDIGI BISON will be worth in the international market. However, they expect the price to be below 250 euros. In fact, if you are interested in this mobile, you can already get it on AliExpress for that price.
