Nubia Z50 Ultra launched with DSLR-like custom cameras
The Nubia Z50 Ultra has been stealing the spotlight for the past few days. Now, it’s finally official – it’s the first non-gaming Nubia smartphone to bring an under-screen selfie camera. Yeah, Nubia is now drinking on the formula of its parent-company ZTE. While most of the brands are comfortable with their punch-hole cameras, ZTE keeps trying to improve the under-screen camera solution. The Nubia Z50 Ultra is the latest device to pack this tech, and also brings a set of custom-made cameras at the rear that can rival popular DSLR shooters.
Nubia Z50 Ultra specifications
The Nubia Z50 Ultra packs a 6.8-inch AMOLED screen with 2,480 x 1,116 pixels of resolution. This display also has up to 120 Hz of refresh rate. The display is flat but brings minimalistic bezels and a metallic frame. Interestingly, Nubia is following OnePlus and Apple with an alert slider. The physical button can be set to mute notifications, turn on gaming mode or take instant photos. It sits on the same right side where we can find the volume rocker and the power button.
Gizchina News of the week
The Nubia Z50 Ultra packs an impressive 64 MP Sony IMX787 camera with a 35 mm equivalent focal length. This impressive shooter can also be found on the Nubia Z50. The second shooter also is a 64 MP camera that stands with a periscope lens and an 85mm focal length. Finally, we have a 50 MP Ultrawide snapper. It has Auto-Focus and can also be used for macro shots. Finally, let’s move to the selfie camera. One of the spotlights of this device is the selfie shooter. It’s the 4th generation of an under-display tech dubbed Neovision. The sensor can take 16 MP shots. We know that it can capture the shots with no hassle, but the images still lag behind the conventional cameras, especially when recording videos. We are curious to see the improvements brought in the newer smartphone.
Under the hood, the Nubia Z50 Ultra packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. It starts with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of Storage and goes all the way up to 16 GB and 1 TB of Storage. Worth noting that the entry-level sticks with LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 standards, whereas the latter has LPDDR5X and UFS 4.0 storage standards. The phone runs Android 13 with MyOS 13 straight out of the box. The phone has a USB Type-C 3.1 port, and Bluetooth 5.3, and tri-band GPS. It draws power from a 5,000 mAh battery with 80W fast-charging support.
Pricing and Options
The Nubia Z50 Ultra is available in three distinct color options. We have the simpler Gray and Black color options, which have some red accents through the body. The third option is the fancier of the trio, and once again, brings the Starry Night name and style that Nubia loves. It’s based on Vincent van Gogh’s painting. The latter option is only available in the 12 GB RAM / 512 GB Storage trim.
The Nubia Z50 Ultra will sell from March 14. The base model sells for CNY 3,999 ($580), but if you want the Starry Night colorway you will need to shell out CNY 4,999 ($720).
