Welcome the nubia Z50 Ultra - the first non-gaming smartphone of the ZTE brand with an under-display selfie camera and main shooters on the back, custom-made to match the most popular DSLR focal lengths.

The main camera has a 64MP Sony IMX787 sensor and a 35 mm equivalent focal length. It first appeared on the nubia Z50 and now made its way to the Ultra flagship. The second camera is a periscope shooter, once again with a 64MP sensor behind, but this has an 85mm equivalent focal length. The third shooter is a 50MP ultra-wide-angle snapper that has AF and serves macro duties.

The front-facing camera is a 4th-generation under-display technology called Neovision. The sensor, hidden behind the screen, is 16MP.

The phone ships with MyOS 13 out of the box, and nubia claimed it has no bloatware. Connectivity includes USB-C 3.1, Bluetooth 5.3, and three-band navigation - the nubia Z50 Ultra can connect simultaneously to L1,L2 and L5.

Memory options are 8/256GB, 12/256GB, 12/512GB, and 16GB RAM + 1 TB storage. The ZTE brand claimed the Snapdragon chipset is coupled with LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage but the most affordable is not using the latest standards.

The ZTE nubia Z50 Ultra is offered in two colors - Gray and Black, both of them with red accents around the two major cameras and the power key. There is a third option, called Starry Night, named after the popular painting of the impressionist Vincent van Gogh.

This pretty option comes only with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage at a special price of CNY4,999 ($720/€675). First sale is scheduled for March 14 at 10AM in China.
