Nubia, now a split-off company from ZTE, has launched a new flagship handset called Z30 Pro. Essentially, it is a rebadged Axon 30 Ultra with a smaller battery but faster charging but also higher price. The design is also identical.
To recap, the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra has a 6.67in AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, 10-bit colour support and 144Hz refresh rate. As a flagship it is obviously equipped with a Snapdragon 888 5G chipset and RAM up to 12GB dual-channel. The phone also has a cooling system consisting of a five-layer micron graphene and VC liquid-cooling plate.
For the cameras, there is a quad camera setup and is arranged in a similar fashion as the Huawei P40 Pro, it consists of a quad 64mp setup and one of which is a periscope. The front camera is 16mp in resolution.
The main difference lies on the battery. This one packs a 4200mAh battery with 120W charging and ships with a 120W power brick, whereas the Axon 30 Ultra has a slightly larger 4600mAh battery and 66W fast charging.
The phone uses its own forked Nubia 9.0 UI and contains numerous camera features that would take advantage of both the hardware and software. Nubia even partnered with the National Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences for their NEOVISION 10 Astronomical Imaging System. The company claims users can do astrophotography without the use of a tripod.
It comes with three colours: Vast Black, Interstellar Silver and Black Gold Legend. Below are their prices:
- 8/256- 4999 CNY (~37.2K php)
