At the conference, Nubia emphasized its imaging genes. Among them, NeoVision has always focused on the combination of computational photography and shooting scenes, hoping to open up infinite possibilities for moving images.
The Nubia Z40S Pro comes with a 6.67-inch flexible straight screen and an aviation aluminum straight-edge metal middle frame. It is worth mentioning that the Nubia Z40S Pro transplanted the BP frame to the back of the mobile phone. At the same time, the company used the latest assembly technology in the industry to successfully control the frame of the mobile phone to about 0.95 mm.
There is a sliding key, which can complete operations such as a one-key mute, a one-key start camera, etc.
This phone uses a 6.67-inch flexible straight screen with a screen refresh rate of 144Hz, supports 10bit color depth, 1.07 billion colors, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, and has a peak brightness of 1000 nits.
In terms of system scheduling, the Nubia Z40S Pro has launched Super Stable Frame 2.0, which adopts a newly upgraded frame rate dynamic adjustment algorithm.
In terms of colors, the regular version of the Nubia Z40S Pro is available in two colors: Magic Green and Night Sea. But the limited edition is available in Spirit Cage. The limited edition adopts the exclusive UI of Linglong which is immersive and deeply customized and has 3 sets of themes: the theme of Linglong IP, the theme of hunter, and the theme of landwalker.
Battery and Autonomy
The Nubia Z40S Pro sports a 5000mAh battery, which in its turn supports 80W fast charging. But there is a 4600mAh battery + 120W fast charge version, which requires only 19 minutes to charge the phone from 0 to 100%.
The phone’s rear camera module retains the classic red circle design, which is inspired by high-end SLR lenses and represents Nubia’s pursuit of imaging technology.
The camera system uses the industry’s only integrated ring flash + flicker sensor. This combination improves the fill light capability and effectively suppresses the flicker of photos.
The Nubia Z40S Pro rear main camera includes a custom 64-megapixel IMX787 sensor with a 35mm equivalent focal length + f/1.6 large aperture combination and supports optical image stabilization. In order to improve the shooting capability, the machine has a preset focus function. After manually setting a focus distance, you can shoot directly without focusing again in the future.
Other sensors of the phone include a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and ultra-macro two-in-one lens with a 14mm equivalent focal length and a 116-degree ultra-wide angle. The lens supports ultra-high-definition macro shooting and 8K macro video shooting with a focusing distance of 2cm.
Also, the Nubia Z40S Pro features an 8-megapixel periscope telephoto lens with an equivalent focal length of 125mm and supports optical image stabilization. So far, Nubia has successfully built a full focal length imaging system from 14mm to 125mm.
However, the strength of this handset isn’t hardware. Nubia also provides a lot of gameplay in terms of software algorithms. For instance, the Nubia Z40S Pro comes with nine starry sky algorithms, including AI constellation, second-shot starry sky, and star trails, based on the inheritance of classic gameplay such as light painting, shape-shifting, lingbo microstepping, multi-camera, and simultaneous recording and shooting. and other functions.
Hardware and Performance
Under the hood, this handset hosts the first-generation Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. But apart from this, there is also UFS3.1 native storage and full-blooded LPDDR5 RAM. That’s why the phone scores over 1,132,759 on AnTuTu.
In addition, the Nubia Z40S Pro is equipped with dual speakers and DTS Ultra. It uses an X-axis vibration motor to effectively enhance the user’s video, audio, and game experience.
Our protagonist adopts a straight-through cold-sealed heat dissipation system, with a large VC heat dissipation plate of 3062 square millimeters. The total area of the heat dissipation system is as high as 38387 square millimeters.
The Nubia Z40S Pro runs MyOS12. The latter has a newly designed streamer desktop, application transformation, personalized signature board, sports signboard, and other small components.
