The 5.5-inch mainstream smartphone gets an attractive new color and double the storage capacity for a starting price of about 250 Euros.
Allen Ngo,

The ZTE Nubia N1 was unveiled last July and has been available since December of 2016. Its initial SKU options, however, were limited to just 32 GB of internal storage. The manufacturer is finally updating its smartphone with twice the storage capacity and in a brand new Black Gold color as well.

Other than a new coat of paint, specifications remain identical including:

  • 5.5-inch FHD display
  • Octa-core Helio P10 SoC
  • 13 MP rear + 13 MP front cameras
  • 5000 mAh battery
  • 8.9 mm thick
  • 190 g

The battery carries "Nubia NeoPower" technology that ZTE claims can provide up to three days of use through improved optimizations. In our opinion, however, the longer battery life is simply due to the higher raw capacity of the battery as other 5.5-inch smartphones typically have smaller battery capacities in the 3000 mAh range.

Other features include an all-aluminum chassis, a main rear camera with PDAF, and a front-facing camera with a real-time "beauty filter" feature for better portraits. An integrated fingerprint sensor and Android 6.0 Marshmallow complete with the Nubia 4.0 UI round up the list.

ZTE is expected to announce more smartphones at this year's MWC 2017 including a model with Gigabit network speeds.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
