Nubia has unveiled new smartphones today and ZTE’s online-focused arm came up with 3 models. They’re the Nubia N2, Nubia M2 and Nubia M2 Lite. They came to China with a pretty big celebrity associated, as Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be promoting at least one of these new models.
These units include smartphones with dual cameras and big batteries. The highest end of the bunch is the Nubia M2, that packs a dual 13 megapixel camera at the back. One sensor is an RGB one and the other is a 13 MP monochrome unit. Both have sapphire glass protection and F/2.2 aperture, plus NeoVision 6.0 camera tech. Selfies are taken with an impressive 16 megapixel camera wih F/2.0 aperture.
Specs include a 5.5 inch Full HD screen with an AMOLED panel and inside we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and 4 GB of RAM. 64 or 128 GB of storage are here, plus a microSD card slot and Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Nubia UI 4.0 takes care of the software. Nubia M2 also brings a physical button upfront, which is atypical for a Nubia model, traditionally sporting those pulsing buttons.
A fingerprint scanner is embedded there and we also get a 3630 mAh battery inside with fast charging support. 7.1 channel Dolby acoustics are here, too. The device is priced at $391.
For those who want to spend less, there’s the Nubia M2 Lite, priced at $260. This one takes the 5.5 inch screen down to 720p resolution and specs include the Helio P10 CPU of the Nubia N1 and 3 or 4 GB of RAM. We’ve got 32 or 64 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a fingerprint scanner within a Home button upfront. HiFi audio with DTS and a 3000 mAh battery round up the specs list.
Somehow, the Lite version runs Nougat ahead of the main one. At the back there’s a singular 13 MP camera and upfront a 16 MP selfie shooter.
Finally, here comes the Nubia N2, which curved antenna bands and a new design. This one opts for a 5.5 inch AMOLED screen with Full HD resolution, dual SIM slots, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. There’s a MediaTek octa core CPU inside, dual SIM slots and a 13 megapixel main camera with F/2.2 aperture, that sounds like the camera of the N1.
The 13 MP front camera of the predecessor has been upgraded to 16 MP. The 5000 mAh battery is kept from the N1 and it gets 18W fast charging support. Price starts at $289 and all 3 phones are available in gold or black.
