Nubia has announced that the Nubia Z40S Pro flagship smartphone will be officially launched tomorrow with a starting price of $500. This makes it the most affordable Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 powered device.
Compared to competing Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 models, the highlight of the Z40S Pro is that it features a 35mm lens. At the same time, most modern smartphones use the main camera with a focal length of 24 mm or 26 mm. Importantly, the 35mm lens significantly reduces distortion.
The main camera uses a Sony IMX787 image sensor with a resolution of 64 megapixels and an optical stabilization system. The 116° ultra-wide lens module uses a 50-megapixel Samsung S5KJN1 sensor. The periscope module with an 8-megapixel Hynix hi847 sensor provides 5x optical zoom. This is the only Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 model with a periscope telephoto lens at this price.
The smartphone received a 6.67-inch flat screen with a high refresh rate of 144 Hz, up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512 GB of UFS 3.1 flash memory. Buyers are offered versions with a 5000 mAh battery and 80-watt charging or 4600 mAh and 120-watt charging.
