Gaming smartphones like the ROG Phone series from ASUS are usually associated with a fairly high price, and in most cases this is due to the use of flagship components and often pioneering solutions. The Nubia brand, however, wants to change this image by introducing a smartphone for players, which is distinguished by its characteristic appearance, and at the same time will not deplete our wallet to a significant extent.
Nubia has just presented a smartphone aimed strictly at mobile players, which is distinguished by its design and specification. But not in the way anyone would expect.
Nubia Z50 Ultra debuted. It looks like one of the most interesting smartphones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 system
The most distinctive feature of the smartphone are the immediately eye-catching patterns that can be found on the back of the device. They bring to mind associations with an aggressive, gaming design that has been used for years in many gaming equipment. However, the manufacturer this time tried to approach the issue of mobile games in a rather … budget way. On board we will not find flagship components or the latest technologies. Nevertheless, it has a chance to prove itself in many cases. The debuting Unisoc Tiger T820 is responsible for the processor – it is an 8-core unit with a maximum clock speed of 2.67 GHz, which was made in a 6-nanometer technological process. According to internal benchmarks, its performance is to match the processor from Qualcomm, which is the Snapdragon 855 Plus. The whole thing will be complemented by 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM (up to 18 GB, dynamic memory) and 256 GB of built-in memory, although it is not sure what type.

The screen is responsible for the 6.6-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 2408 x 1080 px and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The display of the image rests on the shoulders of the Mali-G57 graphics chip. On the back we find two cameras, including the main 50 MP unit and a 2 MP module, which may simply be a depth sensor. There is an 8MP camera on the front. The photographic side of this smartphone does not stand, but this is not its purpose. The battery is a cell with a capacity of 4500 mAh, which we charge with a power of 22.5 W, so there is nothing to boast about. The smartphone will offer us 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC or satellite navigation systems. We will also see the forgotten 3.5 mm mini-Jack connector and a slot for two nanoSIM cards. Two color versions are available: yellow and black. Currently, the equipment debuted in Thailand and is sold for about PLN 810. If the smartphone goes to Poland at a slightly higher price, it can be expected that it will enjoy considerable interest, especially among the younger part of society.
