Nubia Z50S Pro to launch with new 1-inch and 35 mm primary camera as company confirms overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 usage
ZTE has revealed various details about the Nubia Z50S Pro, a follow-up to December's Z50 Pro. While the company has not unveiled the device's design yet, it has confirmed that the device will rely on a new version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Previously referred to as the Leading Version by ZTE in RedMagic 8S Pro teasers, the revised chipset is essentially a rebadged Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy with overclocked CPU and GPU cores.
According to ZTE, the Nubia Z50S Pro scores over 1.6 million points in AnTuTu V10, roughly 2% shy of the RedMagic 8S Pro. Presumably, the former has a worse cooling solution than the latter, as well as a lower RAM capacity. If the Nubia Z50 is anything to go by, then the Nubia Z50S Pro should launch with at least 16 GB of RAM. In comparison, ZTE offers the RedMagic 8S Pro with up to 24 GB of RAM, which it markets as the RedMagic 8S Pro Plus.
The Nubia Z50S Pro is likely to feature superior cameras than its RedMagic counterpart, though. Based on the teasers released so far, ZTE has included a new primary camera sensor, which it boasts as having 56% increased light sensitivity and 34% higher light input. Although the company has not named the sensor used, it claims that it has a 1-inch optical format and a 35 mm equivalent focal length, which would eclipse the 1/1.7-inch and 35 mm camera in the Nubia Z50 Pro. ZTE will present the Nubia Z50S Pro in China on July 20; there is no word on a global release yet.
