ZTE Nubia Z50 Ultra

In December 2022, Nubia made waves in the smartphone industry by launching the Nubia Z50, the company’s first phone powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The device boasted a range of impressive features, including a stunning curved-edge display, dual 64-megapixel cameras, and a 5,000mAh battery. Now, Nubia has taken things to the next level with the launch of the Nubia Z50 Ultra, the second phone in the brand’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 lineup.

As the name suggests, the Z50 Ultra takes things up a notch with even more impressive specs than its predecessor. The phone’s standout feature is its notch-less AMOLED display, which has ultra-thin bezels for a truly immersive viewing experience. Measuring 163.9 x 76.3 x 8.3mm and weighing 228 grams, the Z50 Ultra features a massive 6.8-inch OLED screen with a Full HD+ resolution of 2480 x 1116 pixels, a refresh rate of 120Hz, a touch sampling rate of 960Hz, and a peak brightness of 1500 nits. The phone also boasts 10-bit colors and a 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut for a truly stunning display.

The Z50 Ultra also boasts a custom-made 16-megapixel OmniVision OV16E1Q under-display camera with a 2.24μm super large pixel size. The phone’s light transmittance has been increased by 30 percent, allowing for even better selfie shots than before. Additionally, the phone’s AI super-sensing engine and image super-transparency enhancement technology increase screen transparency by 50 percent for video calls.

On the back of the device, you’ll find a powerful camera setup featuring a 35mm 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 main camera with OIS support, an 85mm 64-megapixel periscope zoom camera with OIS support, and a 50-megapixel ultra-wide camera that doubles as a macro camera. These cameras are assisted by a ring LED flash and multi-channel spectral sensors, making the Z50 Ultra a great choice for photography enthusiasts.

Under the hood, the Nubia Z50 Ultra is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and comes with up to 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and up to 1 TB of UFS 4.0 storage. The phone also features a 5,000mAh battery with 80W fast charging support, a 4212mm2 large vapor chamber liquid cooling system, a dual SIM card slot, 5G, Wi-Fi 802.11ax, NFC, an IR blaster, and an X-axis linear motor. 

The phone ships with MyOS 13 out of the box, which is based on the latest Android 13 OS and comes preloaded with just eight essential apps that can’t be uninstalled. The remaining connectivity options include USB-C 3.1, Bluetooth 5.3, and three-band navigation – the Nubia Z50 Ultra can connect simultaneously to L1, L2, and L5.

One of the most unique features of the Nubia Z50 Ultra is its physical slider, which can be customized to mute notifications, turn on gaming mode, or take instant photos. The power key and the volume rocker are both conveniently located on the right-hand side of the device.

The Nubia Z50 Ultra is available in multiple variants in China, including 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage, 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage, 12 GB RAM + 512 GB storage, and 16 GB RAM + 1 TB storage.
