The new feature-packed camera app is replacing the old MediaTek stock camera and it brings along the same manual controls introduced in the newly released UMi Plus.

The new manual, dubbed ‘Pro Photo’ lets users manually adjust most key parameters including photosensitivity (iso), the Exposure Value (ev), Saturation, Contrast, Brightness, the focal point and the white balance.

Needless to say, these new settings are much more flexible compared to the automatic mode and hence, highly beneficial for smartphone photography.

UMi has also confirmed that UMi Super, UMi Max, and UMi Plus will be getting Android 7.0 Nougat in December, meaning existing users of these devices can expect a long list of new functions and optimization option in less than 3 months from now.

Meanwhile, UMi Plus, the latest offering from the Chinese giant, is currently available for pre-sale. The company is also hosting a giveaway contest where you need to submit your email ID and select the favourite features of UMi Plus. You can check out the more details here.
