ZTE launched a new high-end smartphone under its nubia brand. Instead of focusing on gamers like they usually do, the new nubia Z50 Ultra was made especially with camera junkies in mind.
The new nubia Z50 Ultra comes with two custom lenses that aim to mimic some of the most popular focal lengths found on DSLRs and other professional cameras. The main one has a 35mm equivalent which sits in front of the 64-megapixel IMX787 sensor.
There’s also the periscope-style lens with an 85mm equivalent, which also has a 64-megapixel sensor. The third one is an ultra-wide lens with a 50-megapixel sensor, which also has autofocus for macro shots.
The party continues on the front as the Z50 Ultra has a futuristic under-display selfie camera. The 4th generation technology is now called Neovision. It hides the 16-megapixel selfie camera behind the screen to eliminate notches and punch-holes for an undisturbed view of the display.
Speaking of which, what we’re taking a look at here is a large 6.8-inch AMOLED screen with a 2480 x 1116 pixel resolution and a fast 120Hz refresh rate. It has a high screen-to-body ratio thanks to the said under-display camera and the ultra-thin bezel at 1.48mm.
Moving on, the device also comes with a physical slider, which you can customize to mute notifications, enable the camera app, or enable gaming mode.
Under the hood, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which you can pair with up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.
The battery has a 5,000mAh capacity with 80W fast charging.
Those in China can get the new ZTE Nubia Z50 Ultra starting March 14 for a starting price of CNY4,999 (~Php39,600) for the 12GB/512GB configuration. It comes in Gray, Black, and a special color called Starry Night which is inspired by the popular work of artist Vincent van Gogh.
