ZTE Nubia N1 with 5000 mAh battery now official
Now that the Nubia Z11 series is complete, ZTE has announced the Nubia N1 with a focus on endurance instead of a border-free display bezel. The 5.5-inch smartphone carries a high capacity 5000 mAh battery with "NeoPower" power-saving features that promise up to three days of low-power use. ZTE claims that its components have been carefully selected based on power consumption for an overall longer battery life. In comparison, most 5.5-inch smartphones carry battery packs of about 3000 mAh or even smaller.
Additionally, the N1 will carry 13 MP cameras on both the rear and front, which is odd for a smartphone. They are not exactly the same, however, as only the rear camera will support phase detection auto-focus (PDAF) with a f/2.2 aperture.
Aside from the battery and cameras, other core specifications include:
- 5.5-inch FHD display
- MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core SoC
- 3 GB RAM
- 64 GB eMMC w/ MicroSD reader
- Fingerprint sensor w/ 0.2 sec. unlock time
- Dual-SIM, USB Type-C
WiFi, Bluetooth, and LTE will all be supported, but the manufacturer has not gone into specifics regarding wireless bands or 802.11ac compatibility.
The Nubia N1 will be available in China in Gold and Silver color options for 1700 Yuan or 230 Euros. It remains to be seen if ZTE will officially launch the smartphone in Europe and overseas.
