UMIDIGI launched the G1 Tab in Nepal in September last year. Now the company is gearing up to introduce another similar tablet — the UMIDIGI G2 Tab. The naming of this thing might lead you to believe that it is the successor to the first one, but, it is merely a refresh. Here, we will discuss the UMIDIGI G2 Tab in further detail including its expected price in Nepal.

UMIDIGI G2 Tab Overview

Design and Display

Design-wise, the UMIDIGI G2 Tab is almost the same as its previous variant. The dimensions remain unchanged, and so does the weight of the tablet. One — and the only — difference between this tablet and the last one is the back panel material. This time around the company has layered its back with artificial leather, giving it a somewhat premium feel. Additionally, the colour option has also been updated to Midnight Blue.

Other than that, everything is the same. The display on the UMIDIGI G2 Tab is the same 10.1-inch HD+ unit. The company still refuses to mention the type of panel on this tablet. This coupled with the fact that it is a budget offering, leads us to believe that must be a lower-end LCD. A TFT LCD perhaps?

Performance

For performance, the UMIDIGI G2 Tab relies on the RK3562 processor. If you are thinking, “What the hell is this processor?”, then I don’t blame you, really. This is quite an obscure chip from Rockchip — a fabless semiconductor company based in China. In fact, the RK3562 appears to have been introduced on select devices including the G1 Tab, hence, its rarity.

Anyway, it is a quad-core processor that clocks in at a maximum of 2.0GHz. All the cores in here are the Cortex-A53 cores, which is one of Arm’s mid-tier offerings. In addition to the chipset, the UMIDIGI G2 Tab comes with 4GB RAM with an option to double it virtually. Meanwhile, the storage on this thing is 64 gigs by default and can be further expanded by a TB via MicroSD/TF card.

Camera and the rest

In terms of cameras, you are getting an eight-megapixel unit on the front as well as on the back. Both these shooters are capped out at HD (720p) video recording, which is barely acceptable by today’s standards. But once again, it is an entry-level tablet. Moreover, the rear camera setup has another cutout, but it is just LED flash. So, yeah.

In the tank, it packs a 6,000 mAh battery that supports 10W of wired charging, both of which are pretty low. For wireless connectivity, it comes with relatively new WiFi 6 support and pretty old Bluetooth v5.0 in contrast. There are no cellular or navigation options on the UMIDIGI G2 Tab. You get a stereo speaker setup though.

UMIDIGI G2 Tab Price in Nepal and Availability

The Nepali wing of UMIDIGI has been dropping the device’s teasers on its social media, so we know it’s coming. However, no exact date or price has been announced so far. Hence, I am doing some guesswork for the price here. The UMIDIGI G1 Tab is currently priced at NPR 12,999. Since the UMIDIGI G2 Tab is basically the same thing, we expect its price in Nepal to be around NPR 13,499 at most.
