Design

As I already said, UMIDIGI S2 Lite looks very similar to previous models, such as UMIDIGI S2 and S2 Pro. To be honest, it is very difficult to find differences between them.

New smartphone has full screen design, so there is no home button on the front panel. Here you can see front camera, earpiece and other sensors.

As for the back panel, there is dual rear camera, flash and fingerprint reader.

UMIDIGI S2 Lite is made of metal. Also it has curved back panel, and it seems that display is curved too, like Galaxy S8, but it is not so. There are small bezels on left and right sides of display.

UMIDIGI S2 Lite is equipped with dual rear camera: 16 megapixel and 5 megapixel sensors. It provides bokeh and monochrome effects. Also there is 5 megapixel front camera. I don’t see real sample photos yet, so I cannot tell you about image quality. However, I think that it doesn’t differ much from UMIDIGI S2.

Battery

The battery is another highlight of new smartphone. UMIDIGI S2 Lite is equipped with 5100mAh battery. According to manufacturer, the smartphone runs about two days on a single charge.

We already tested UMIDIGI S2 battery, and it shows one of the best result – about 10 hours while playing videos on YouTube. It is really good result, and I think that lite version has the same battery performance.
