ZTE has unveiled the Nubia Pad 3D at MWC 2023. What’s interesting about it is that it’s the industry’s first tablet that provides a 3D viewing experience without having to wear 3D glass. Let’s take a look at the specs, features, and expected price of ZTE Nubia Pad 3D in Nepal.

ZTE Nubia Pad 3D Overview:

To achieve this, ZTE partnered with Leia Inc, which is a company that specializes in 3D AI experiences. Ni Fei, senior vice president of ZTE Corporation and president of ZTE Mobile Devices, expresses, “ZTE, in partnership with Leia on 3D AI technology, is pleased to announce the expansion of its 5G+3D offering. With this technology, users can eyewear-free enjoy a rich, natural 3D experience.”

Immersive 3D

The Nubia Pad 3D uses Leia’s cutting-edge 3D Lightfield technology with a robust AI computing power engine. This is complemented by dual 8MP front cameras to track a user’s face and eyes for the 3D experience. Likewise, its front cameras and the dual 16MP rear cameras can create 3D photos and videos, and scan objects as well.

ZTE says this tablet can even convert 2D content like streaming media, games, and movies into immersive and unique 3D visual experiences.

Moreover, Leia’s Appstore on the Nubia Pad 3D is home to fifty 3D games and 1200+ 3D educational apps. The company has also stressed leveraging this tablet for medical support, educational, digital exhibitions, and other sectors.


Moving on, the ZTE Nubia Pad 3D sports a 12.4-inch IPS LCD panel. This 2.5K screen has a 120Hz refresh rate and a 16:10 aspect ratio. And it also features a proprietary DLB (Diffractive Lightfield Backlighting) layer developed by Leia, alongside Leia’s 3D Lightfield mode.

As for the build materials, this tablet has a fairly premium metal body design. The tablet is available in a single color option: Midnight Black. Whereas ZTE has also bundled it with an elegant vegan leather case of the same color.


Powering the Nubia Pad 3D is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset from 2020. The reason ZTE has used an old chip here is due to the time taken for R&D (Research & Development) of the tablet, which is said to be 2 years as per the company.

To recall, this is a Samsung-made processor with an octa-core CPU, consisting of one Cortex-X1 core at 2.84 GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores at 2.42 GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores at 1.80 GHz. You can get this tablet with 128 or 256GB of internal storage. But although we know it features LPDDR5 RAM, ZTE hasn’t disclosed the actual amount of RAM this tablet will ship with.


The Nubia Pad 3D gets its juice from a 9,700mAh battery which supports 33W fast charging. It boots on Android 13 out of the box. Other specs include an SD card slot for memory expansion, Dolby Surround speakers, etc.
