When will the pandemic end? No one knows. That's why remote temperature measurement is very important. It is done in schools, hospitals, shopping centers and many other places. Usually with an infrared thermometer.

UMIDIGI decided that the topic is hot. And built the aforementioned device into the smartphone UMIDIGI A9. Convenient - take it out and find out if there is a fever. Although there is an opinion that the accuracy of such devices is low (compared to their mercury counterparts).

UMIDIGI A9 is a simplified version of UMIDIGI A9 Pro. The gadget has not been officially introduced, but is already available on AliExpress (the brand's store). Judging by the characteristics - the device is interesting, but not top-end.

The developers did not cheat with the screen. Future owners will find a 6.53-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1600 by 720 pixels. The display has a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front lens at 8 MP.

As for the processor, we will have to settle for the MediaTek Helio G25. The manufacturer calls the chip a gaming chip, but gamers will be disappointed. About 100,000 points in AnTuTu - the result is not serious.

In addition, UMIDIGI A9 got 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory. Who is not enough - there is a separate slot for microSD cards. For shooting is responsible triple rear camera: 13 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP. You can hope for good pictures.

What you can not complain about is the battery. The creators did not skimp on the battery capacity of 5150 mAh. Constantly be close to the socket is unnecessary. Alas, charging is not the fastest - 10W.

What is the situation with the mobile Internet? Adequate speed is guaranteed by a 4G LTE modem. USB Type-C port, dual-band Wi-Fi and fingerprint scanner complete the configuration. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back cover.

Unfortunately, it is better to forget about contactless payment. There is no NFC module. But the operating system is fresh - Android 11. The phone weighs 204 g. The body is not too thin - 9.45 mm.

Now order UMIDIGI A9 will cost $199.98 (about 15 thousand rubles). However, the price should go down to at least $130 in the next few days. For such a "budget" device - quite a fair amount.
