Last year December, Nubia announced the Nubia Z50 with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset onboard. The device came equipped with other attractive features, including a marvellous curved-edge display, 64-megapixel dual cameras, and a 5,000mAh battery. And now, the ZTE sub-brand has unveiled the Nubia Z50 Ultra as its second Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered phone.

The smartphone, being an “Ultra” model, it offers enhanced specs over the Z50. The USP of the device is that it comes equipped with a notch-less AMOLED display with ultra-thin bezels.

The Nubia Z50 Ultra measures 163.9 x 76.3 x 8.3mm and weighs 228 grams. It houses a 6.8-inch OLED display, which offers a full experience as there is no notch or punch-hole on it.

The Z50 Ultra is equipped with a custom-made 16-megapixel OmniVision OV16E1Q under-display camera with a 2.24μm super large pixel size. The company said that the light transmittance has increased by 30 precent. This allows the Z50 Ultra to capture better selfie shots than before.
