ZTE’s subbrand Nubia has launched its brand new high-end smartphone i.e. Z50S Pro. The phone is China-exclusive for now and features the flagship Snapdragon chip and the company’s latest camera technology. In this article, we will discuss the key specifications, features, expected price, and availability of the Nubia Z50S Pro in Nepal.

Nubia Z50S Pro Overview:

Display and Design

The Nubia Z50S Pro features a large 6.78” AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,260 x 2,800px, resulting in a pixel density of 452 ppi and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The display supports a smooth 120Hz refresh rate and has a wide 100% DCI-P3 color gamut. Moreover, the handset comes with a 1,000Hz touch sampling rate (720Hz while tracing multiple fingers). It also supports both DC and high-frequency PWM dimming for comfortable viewing in all lighting conditions.


The phone has a boxy design and there are three colorways to choose from. You get a unique double-textured design with a leather pattern finishes on top of the AG glass protection on the standard Black and Khaki options. The camera bumps on these options are also made to look like a camera lens.

On the contrary, there is a Special Edition that features a prismatic ring around the camera island. The rear panel is also designed after ice so that it reflects light falling on it. On the right side, there are three buttons: power, volume rocker, and a dedicated camera shutter button.


The latter just adds to the advanced mobile photography that Nubia is going with the Z50S Pro. The phone features a triple-camera system on the back in the circular camera module, consisting of a 50MP primary camera, an 8MP telephoto, and a 50MP ultrawide camera. The main camera has a 35mm focal length, a wide f/1.59 aperture, and a custom 1G+6P lens. It also has Optical Image Stabilization. Inside the punch hole of the display, there is the phone’s selfie shooter that comes with 16MP capability.



The handset is powered by the Advanced Edition of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset which is basically the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip but with the Prime Cortex-X3 core clocked higher at 3.36 GHz. All the graphics-related tasks are controlled by a dedicated Adreno 740 GPU, running at 719 MHz. The Nubia Z50S Pro also comes with a 4233mm² vapor chamber to lower the heat during intensive usage. Furthermore, the phone primarily comes with MyOS 13 based on Android 13.

In terms of benchmarks, the Nubia Z50S Pro has scored 1,676,933 points in the AnTuTu benchmark. This score is comparable to other flagship smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Memory and Storage

ZTE offers three memory and storage options to choose from for this smartphone; 12GB RAM with 256GB storage, 12GB RAM with 1TB storage, and 16GB RAM with 1TB storage.  The phone does not have a microSD card slot, so storage is not further expandable.

Battery and Charging

It is powered by a 5,100mAh battery. ZTE claims that the battery can last for just over 37 hours with moderate usage. In power-saving mode, the battery can last even longer, with 6 hours of standby time or a 30-minute call on WeChat on just a 5% charge. The Nubia Z50S Pro also supports 80W fast charging. This means that the phone can be fully charged from empty in just about 30 minutes.
