Nubia teases its 2022 flagship phone as one with an industry-first 35mm lens camera
A recent leak had hinted that Nubia would join this year's Android flagship chat with the NX701J, or the successor to 2021's Z30 Pro. Now, the ZTE-owned brand has confirmed that this is the case: the phone in question may or may not be called the Z40 Pro.
Nubia has also now let it be known that this premium device will have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, as one might nearly expect of a flagship smartphone in 2022, paired with the brand's first "aerospace-grade" material-based cooling solution.
However, its maker already insists it will really stand out thanks to its cameras. This, apparently, will involve the industry's first-ever rear panel hump containing a 35mm lens. Glass supporting this versatile focal length is normally the purview of full-frame cameras, and may thus indeed enhance mobile photography with a "Z40 Pro".
Furthermore, it is also now slated to have a "custom" Sony IMX787 sernsor, tipped to confer "SLR-grade" bokeh on the phone. The next Nubia Z is said to launch in February 2022, although its price and availability remain more of a mystery at this point.
