The Umidigi Bison GT2 appears to be a more expensive version of the Umidigi Bison X10S NFC. It has the same overall appearance as the X10S NFC, with a Storm Grey AG Matte Fiberglass finish and comparable camera and button placements, but its more premium specs will outperform the X10S NFC in terms of performance.
The smartphone includes an FM transmitter. This eliminates the need to plug an earphone into the headphone jack in order to listen to FM radio, which is more practical. A 3.5mm headphone socket, a USB Type-C port, NFC, and Bluetooth 5.0 are all still present.
Along with the Umidigi Bison GT2 Pro, the Bison GT2 was the first Umidigi smartphone to ship with Android 12.
What is the distinction between the Umidigi Bison GT2 and the Bison GT2 Pro? In a summary, the GT2 is finished in Storm Grey AG Matte Fiberglass and has 128GB built-in storage, whereas the GT2 Pro is finished in Hack Black Industrial Rubber and has 256GB built-in storage.
