Great design with IP68 and IP69K protections against water, dust, heat, and more …
As we mentioned at the beginning, the UMIDIGI BISON GT maintains the design of its predecessor, as well as the protection against external agents. Specifically, this mobile has IP68 and IP69K certifications. That means you can immerse yourself in up to 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes and come out unscathed. It also resists dust, sand, and dirt, as well as heat, without problems.

High-quality cameras: 64 MP rear and 32 MP front

Helio G95 gaming processor with 8 GB of RAM and 4D vibration motor
The UMIDIGI BISON GT takes a huge leap in power. While the original BISON uses a processor that in AnTuTu has 170,000 points, this new BISON GT uses the Helio G95 gaming chip that in AnTuTu has 300,000 points. In other words, it is twice as powerful as the previous model. Also, it includes 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage so you can play whatever you want and enjoy the apps you want.
It also includes a 2.0 four-layer liquid cooling system that efficiently dissipates heat generated when performing demanding tasks to keep its performance stable and fast. By the way, it features a 4D linear vibration motor which is great for gaming.
2 customizable buttons to use functions without having to touch the screen
Something that we love about this smartphone is the two independent buttons that it includes and that you can configure to do what you want. They are located on the side of the mobile, where there is also its fingerprint reader, and you can use them to activate the flashlight, take underwater photos, make an emergency call, turn on the audio recording, etc. In this way, you can take advantage of all the functions of the UMIDIGI BISON GT more quickly and intuitively without pressing the screen.
