Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia has announced three new devices, the nubia M2, M2 Lite and N2, for the Chinese market.
The Nubia M2 is the first smartphone in the Nubia lineup to feature a Dual-Camera setup. This setup sports a 13MP monochrome sensor and another 13MP colour sensor. Both the sensors have f/2.2 aperture and are protected by Sapphire Glass. The selfie shooter is a 16MP unit with f/2.0 aperture and an 80 degree field of view.
The Nubia M2 has a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display. The device runs on the Snapdragon 625 platform coupled with 4GB RAM. There are two storage options - 64GB and 128GB, which are expandable via microSD. You get a fingerprint scanner embedded inside the phone’s physical Home button. The M2 has a 3630 mAh battery with Android 6.0 Marshmallow layered over Nubia UI 4.0.
The Nubia M2 Lite, as the name suggests, is a watered-down version of the M2. It has a single 13MP primary camera with f/2.2 aperture and dual-tone LED flash. It gets the same 16MP selfie shooter like the M2. The M2 Lite has a 5.5-inch 720p display and will run on the MediaTek Helio P10 SoC. For storage and RAM options you get - 3GB/32GB & 4GB/64GB. It has a smaller 3000mAh battery, but will come with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. Rest everything remains the same.
The Nubia N2 is meant for battery hogs, as it sports a massive 5000mAh battery with 18W quick charging capability. The specifications are almost similar to the M2 Lite, except it has a Full HD AMOLED display. In addition, it has a 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage variant. The N2 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and will launch on April 8.
The price of the Nubia M2 is CNY 2,699 (roughly Rs. 25,670) for the 64GB variant and CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 28,528) for the 128GB variant. The device will be available soon in Gold and Black colour variants. The M2 Lite will start at CNY 1,799 (roughly Rs. 17,113) and will be offered in Black and Gold colours. Lastly, the nubia N2 will be priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 19,000).
