The sub-brand of ZTE is launching a new model of the nubia Z50 Ultra smartphone, which primarily focuses on cameras. Among other things, the gadget will also offer a flagship set of equipment, a front camera hidden under the display, a physical slider for quick access to some functions, and a design in the style of Vincent van Gogh. And all this with a fairly affordable price tag, compared to most of the top offers of A-brands.
First, briefly about the components. The nubia Z50 Ultra features a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, 8 to 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and 256 GB to 1 TB storage (UFS 4.0 in bigger options and the previous standard in entry-level). The battery capacity of this model is 5,000 mAh and supports fast charging with a power of 80 W.
The front side is completely occupied by a 6.8-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2480×1116 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. At the same time, the dimensions of the frame around the screen are 1.48 and 1.68 mm. An interesting feature here is the front camera hidden under the screen. The company calls the technology Neovision, and this is already its fourth generation. The resolution of the camera itself is 16 MP.
But the cameras from the other side are more interesting. There are three of them and the design of the entire unit once again emphasizes that it’s exactly what this model focuses on. The main wide-angle sensor is a 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 with a focal length of 35 mm. The second large 85mm lens is periscopic and has the same resolution. The third camera is a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with autofocus and support for macro shooting.
A special feature of the smartphone is one of the control elements — a slider on the right side, with which the user can switch between different notification modes, turn on game mode or instantly take photos. Also, in addition to the classic black or light gray case colors, the manufacturer offers an option that repeats the famous painting by impressionist Vincent van Gogh – “Starry Night”. At the same time, each of the color options leaves red accents on the power button and the frames of the large lenses.
The start of sales in China is scheduled for March 14. The initial cost of the device is $580. The Starry Night design option is available only in the 12/512GB configuration and costs $720.
