ZTE has discreetly announced the Nubia N1, their latest smartphone in the Nubia series, by listing it on the offical Nubia website. The N1 looks very similar to the Nubia Z11 which was launched few days back, albeit, is not exactly bezel-less like Z11
As for specifications, the N1 is equipped with a 5.5-inch Full HD display and has a pixel density of 401PPI. It houses an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 chip integrating the Mali-T860 GPU. There is 3GB of RAM as well. Packing 64GB of internal storage, N1 allows expanding it further up to 128GB via a microSD card. A fingerprint scanner has been placed at the back, which looks like a regular design affair, and claims to unlock the phone in 0.2 seconds.
Coming to the camera department, the 13-megapixel primary camera boasts of an f/2.2 lens with support for PDAF. On the front is the same 13-megapixel camera which promises great selfies under low-light condition, however, there is no LED flash at the front. The N1 runs Nubia 4.0 UI based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. The key highlight of the N1 is a massive 5000mAh battery which it houses inside its chassis. It is priced at 1699 Yuan ($254 or Rs 17, 125 approximately) for the 64GB variant which comes in silver and gold colour options.
While Nubia has merely listed the N1, there’s no official word on when it will be released in other markets including India.
