UMIDIGI BISON GT2 / GT2 PRO-5G model can also be selected Midrange rugged smartphone
UMIDIGI will release the rugged smartphone “UMIDIGI BISON GT2 / GT2 PRO”. The BISON series has been released as an entry model recently. Still, this product has mid-range (mid-high) class specifications and has a relatively quiet design as a rugged smartphone, so it seems that it can also be used as a daily using device.

* From the left CPU / RAM/storage
There are two variations of “GT2 / GT2 PRO” for both 4G and 5G models, and the storage capacity and back design are different between GT2 and GT2 PRO. Also, the CPU model number differs between the 4G model and the 5G model.
The OS is the latest Android 12, and it can be said that it is almost the fastest to install Android 12 as a so-called “Chinese smartphone (not a major manufacturer such as Xiaomi)”. The CPU is Helio G95 (Antutu Ver.9 score is about 350,000 points) for the 4G model and Dimensity 900 (Antutu Ver.9 score is about 470,000 points) for the 5G model, so it is a mid-range or mid-high class performance. Especially with 5G models, most games can be played with high image quality.
RAM is 8GB common to all models; storage is 128GB for GT2 and 256GB for GT2 PRO for both 4G and 5G models, which is sufficient capacity.
The display has a 6.5-inch FHD + (2,400 x 1,080) resolution and a refresh rate of up to 90Hz. Chinese rugged smartphones often have a lower display resolution (HD +), but BISON GT2 / GT2 PRO has display specifications similar to general midrange machines.
In terms of communication, in addition to supporting 5G (5G model only), I am grateful that it also supports Wi-Fi 6. The battery capacity is also as large as 6,150 mAh.
The number of pixels of the camera is also high. It is a triple-lens with 24MP on the inside and 64MP on the outside. I can’t say anything about the actual image quality, but looking at the numbers alone is sufficient for the main smartphone.
Although the size is thicker and heavier than available smartphones, it can be said that it is considerably thinner and lighter than other rugged smartphones.
2. BISON GT2 / GT2 PRO chassis
For both 4G and 5G models, the image on the left is “GT2,” and on the right is “GT2 PRO”. The GT2 has a matte fiberglass finish, and the GT2 PRO has an industrial rubber back cover. Also, regarding GT2, the appearance is different between the 4G model and the 5G model, and the 5G model has a carbon-like pattern.
The front bezel is slightly thicker, as the edges may be reinforced. But the front camera is a punch hole. All models have IP68 / IP69K waterproof and dustproof performance and MIL standard (MIL-STD-810G) compliant durability.

The name of each part. This product has two customize buttons (buttons to which the user can assign any function). The power button also doubles as a fingerprint sensor.
Also, there is an “Infrared Thermometer Sensor”.
UMIDIGI products are also equipped with the standard infrared thermometer (thermometer) function.
3. BISON GT2 / GT2 PRO Price etc.
UMIDIGI BISON GT2 / GT2 PRO will have a world premiere sale from 5 pm on February 21 at the UMIDIGI Official Store on AliExpress. The sale price starts from $ 229.99 (27,495 yen) for the GT2 4G model and $ 289.99 (34,688 yen) for the GT2 5G model (price with the $ 10 OFF coupon on the product page). The exchange rate used in the store as of February 15 is used, so I think the yen will change by the time the sale is held.
I think the design and specifications can be used as a rugged smartphone and as a normal main smartphone, and the sale price (unfortunately, the yen is depreciating) is relatively easy to purchase.
