The UMIDIGI Z2 and Z2 Pro have been teased for quite some time. The handset aims to help change your opinion on budget smartphones and does so in an impressive fashion.

However, the fun isn’t stopping now, as a new Luxury edition of the Z2 Pro has been introduced. This new version will sport a Ceramic build with the help of “microcrystal zirconium oxide ceramic”.

UMIDIGI Z2 Pro Luxury Edition

UMIDIGI claims that this version will feel similar to that of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. Which is quite impressive, considering that we don’t see very many ceramic phones on the market.

The metal frame of the Z2 Pro will return, but the body will be “slightly curved”. Ceramic will cover the back, with the same glass from the standard Z2 Pro used on the front.

Now if you’re wondering about durability, UMIDIGI thinks that it has solved the puzzle. The ceramic used on this version rates between 8 and 8.5 on the Mohs scale.

This falls in second to diamond and sapphire, but is still much harder than just regular glass. UMIDIGI actually claims that the ceramic won’t scratch from any materials other than diamonds or sapphire.

One of the most beneficial features of the Z2 Pro was the support for 15W wireless charging. This will still be available with the Luxury edition and will be a standard configuration at checkout.

New Cameras

As we stated before, UMIDIGI isn’t stopping with the release of the Z2 and Z2 Pro. The new ‘Luxury’ Z2 Pro will also feature a new series of cameras on both the front and rear.

On the front, UMIDIGI will be using the Sony IMX371 sensor for selfies. This is the same 16MP sensor that was included on the OnePlus 5T last year.

As for the rear, the Z2 Pro will make use of the S5K2P7 sensor. This sports an optical format of 1/1.28-inches along with apertures of f/1.7 and f/2.0.

This lens module was the same option found in handsets from Oppo, LG, Nokia, and others. UMIDIGI claims that this new camera module will provide incredible low-light pictures and more.
