Nubia has a new smartphone under its M2 line. The new Nubia M2 Play will be joining the M2 and M2 Lite in Nubia’s line of midrange devices.
Just like its older brothers, the ZTE Nubia M2 Play has the camera department as its headlining feature. The device has a 13-megapixel sensor at the back with their very own NeoVision 6.0 image engine. It also features a Beauty mode and HDR inside a camera app that awfully looks like iOS’s.
And just like most smartphone manufacturers today, Nubia also give importance to the handset’s camera. Hence, we have a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with a CMOS sensor. It also features an 84-degree wide-angle lens for some group pictures. Something that we saw on other phones like the OPPO F3 and F3 Plus.
The Nubia M2 Play utilizes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 octa-core processor to be its main brain. It’s then partnered with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 505 GPU. With such muscle, and a low-resolution 5.5-inch 720p display, this thing can pretty much nail every task or games you throw at it.
And let us not forget one of the most obvious features of this device — the design. The M2 Play shares the same aesthetics as with the M2 devices before it. This thing has an all-metal unibody build at only 7.9mm thick, which translates to an unnecessarily thin design and a non-removable battery.
