Nubia has introduced the Z40 Pro, its latest flagship phone for 2022.
The Nubia Z40 Pro is one of the first smartphones to use the latest 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 sensor. It sits on an optical image stabilization module, behind an f/1.6 aperture and 7P lens. There’s a camera island on the back that flamboyantly highlights this feat.
We also have an ultra-sharp 50-megapixel ultra-wide camera and an 8-megapixel periscope-style telephoto lens that can do 5x of optical zoom.
On the front, there’s a 16-megapixel main camera on top of a feature-packed display. It’s a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with a smooth 144Hz refresh rate and 1,000-nits of peak brightness.
Like most Android flagships today, the Z40 Pro boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. You can pair it with up to 16GB of RAM and up to a generous 1TB of storage.
It then has a 5,000mAh battery paired with an 80W wired charging. Meanwhile, there’s also a special Nubia Z40 Pro Gravity Edition that has a smaller 4,600mAh capacity and slower 66W charging but does come with Magnetic Charging, similar to the Magsafe of the newer iPhones — beating Realme to the punch in the Android space.
