Nubia just released an upgraded version of its current flagship from months ago. Meet the Nubia Z40S Pro, which brings only a few but substantial upgrades over the non-S variant that came out in February.

For starters, the Nubia Z40s Pro is now powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, versus the non-Plus chip that the Z40 Pro had. It also has a larger and better cooling system.


Another upgrade is the charging as the 4,600mAh variant now has a 120W adapter, while the regular 5,000mAh model is paired with an 80W adapter.

The rest of the specs are the same. We still have a smooth and colorful 144Hz AMOLED screen, 64-megapixel IMX787 main camera, 50-megapixel ultra-wide, and a periscope-style lens with OIS. It even comes with 6 LED flashes and a flicker sensor in case you need it.


Nubia altered the camera layout on the back and the color options to make it look flesh.

A black color is still here, but it is now joined by a Magic Green and a special Spirit Cage variant that’s based on a Chinese anime and is bundled with special accessories to match the theme.


The Nubia Z40S Pro with 80W charging has a starting price of CNY3,399 (around Php28,000). That’s with an 8GB/128GB configuration. Meanwhile, the 120W version begins at CNY4,299 (around Php35,400) with 12GB/256GB configuration.

There’s also a whopping 18GB/1TB model for CNY6,699 (around Php55,200), while the Spirit Cage model with 120W/12GB/256GB config is at CNY4,699 (around Php38,700).
