While nubia has a powerful gaming flagship with the Red Magic 8S, the brand has a camera-focused flagship with the Z50S Pro. Unlike the Red Magic 8S, the Z50S Pro has a camera-focused design, with a leatherette texture on the back panel to give it a classic camera look.
As a camera-focused flagship, the main highlight of the Z50S Pro is its 50-megapixel 1/1.49″ main camera that has a 35mm focal equivalent, along with a 1G+6P lens design, f/1.59 aperture, and OIS. Accompanying it is a 50-megapixel ultra-wide camera with a 13mm focal length equivalent, f/2.0 aperture, and 2.5cm macro focusing. Rounding up the setup is a 16-megapixel telephoto camera with an 80mm focal length equivalent, f/2.4 aperture, and OIS.
The Z50S Pro comes with a large 6.78-inch AMOLED display that has a 120hz refresh rate, 1000hz touch response rate, and support for 10-bit color. Unlike the Red Magic 8S, the Z50S Pro settles for a conventional punch-hole for its 16-megapixel selfie shooter. Powering it is a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 processor that’s paired with up to 16GB RAM and 1TB storage. It also has a larger-than-usual 5100mAh battery that supports 80w charging.
The nubia Z50S Pro starts at CNY 3699(~Php 29k) for the 12GB/256GB model of the black and khaki colorways, and tops out at CNY 4499(~Php 35k) for the 16GB/1TB model in white. It will be available in China on July 27, and there’s no word if nubia plans to make it available outside of China.
