nubia Z60 Ultra in for review

Ivan, 12 January 2024

The premium smartphone market is thriving at this point - you get your gaming-specific phones, your camera-centric flagships, your flagship killers, your battery champs. But we haven't had such an interesting-looking cameraphone thus far - it's an interesting niche the nubia Z60 Ultra looks to fill.

Before we get to testing, a quick unboxing. The nubia Z60 Ultra ships with a hard plastic case, an 80W charger, and a USB-C cable.

The nubia Z60 Ultra is an all-out flagship with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, up to 24GB of RAM, it's IP68 waterproof, and it has an under-display camera.

But it's the camera system that really shines, at least on paper. ZTE is the only maker that's sticking with a physical 35mm main lens - something photographers, especially old-school ones, love it for. 35mm has a narrower field of view compared to the 23-24mm focal length which is the default these days. At 35mm, you also get a nice subject-to-background separation - bokeh or background blur, thanks in equal part to the nubia Z60 Ultra's ample 1/1.49-inch sensor.

The ultrawide promises to be just as interesting - it's a bit narrower than usual at 18mm (still plenty wide), but it has a big 1/1.55-inch sensor and a bright f/1.8 lens. The zoom is an 85mm f/3.3 periscope with a big half-inch sensor.

We expect great things from the nubia Z60 Ultra's camera system, provided the software can keep up with the hardware.

Finally, a word on design and build. The nubia Z60 Ultra is a rectangular phone with thick sides. It's hefty at 246g but it's the price you pay for a massive 6,000mAh battery.

The phone is encased in a matte metal casing that's both a pleasure to touch and lovely to look at.

That's it for now, stay tuned for more.

Hi from France, So "in for review" was a fake, My english is not good but to be fair to my readers I would have rather written: "nubia Z60 Ultra in for preview"

Well, I'm still waiting for the Asus Zenfone 4 review, after they did the hands on, so..... :D

Flossy Carter is the GOAT.
