ZTE launched the Nubia Z50 late last year in China. The smartphone is now joined by a ‘Ultra’ sibling. The new Nubia Z50 Ultra is announced with a new design, a notch-less AMOLED panel alongside custom 35mm and 85mm camera lenses. Let’s get into the specifics of Nubia Z50 Ultra, along with its expected price in Nepal.
Nubia Z50 Ultra Overview:
Contrary to the curved edges on the Z50, ZTE has adopted a flat-frame boxy design for the Z50 Ultra. There’s two tone color scheme on the back, especially visible in the upper halve of the camera module. The Nubia Z50 Ultra is available in two colors: Gray and Black.
But there’s an exclusive color variant known as the Starry Night is kind of artistic and illustrative. The art resembles the popular painting of the impressionist Vincent van Gogh from the late 1800s. Likewise, the red accent on the camera rims and power key is present throughout all the color options.
One of the main highlights of this phone is its notch-less AMOLED display. That is, ZTE has buried the selfie camera beneath the screen. The phone sports a 6.8-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. You also get a touch sampling rate of 960Hz.
For reducing eye strains, ZTE has provided a 1440Hz PWM dimming while for sunlight readability, the screen bags a peak brightness of 1500 nits. Furthermore, the notch-less screen also supports 10-bit colors, and a 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut.
Another highlight of this smartphone is the custom 35mm, and 85mm lenses. The primary camera is the same 64MP Sony IMX787 from Nubia Z50 with an custom 35mm focal length. It is followed by another 64MP periscope shooter which now has a 85mm focal length for those zoomed shots. Both lenses support OIS.
Last but not least, you get an 50MP ultrawide-angle snapper that has Auto Focus (AF) and doubles as a macro lens. Moreover, the rear camera gets a ring-shaped LED flash and multi-channel spectral sensors for improved color accuracy in low light.
Coming to the front, ZTE has hidden a custom-made 16MP OmniVision OV16E1Q selfie camera under the display. This comes with a 2.24μm super large pixel size and 4th gen Neovision under-display technology for capturing 30% more light.
On top of that, there is an AI super-sensing engine and image super-transparency enhancement technology allowing screen transparency to increase by up to 50% for video calls.
As expected, the Ultra variant of the Nubia Z50 gets the horsepower from a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. This 4nm SoC boasts a 1+4+3 architecture with a Cortex-X3-based Prime core, Cortex-A715 and Cortex-A710 performance cores, and Cortex-A510 efficiency cores. Adreno 740 handles the graphics rendering for gaming.
For heat dissipation, there is a 4212mm2 large vapor chamber liquid cooling system. The chip is coupled with up to 1TB of storage and 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM. The device boots on MyOS 13 based on Android 13 out of the box with no bloatware, as claimed by Nubia.
Rest of the Specs
The smartphone is fueled by a 5000mAh battery with 80W fast charging support. Talking of the connectivity options, there is 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, a USB Type-C port, etc. Moreover, the phone also has a physical slider for muting notifications, turning on gaming mode, or taking instant photos. This is the first Nubia Z series phone with a physical slider, by the way.
