Nubia has launched two smartphones in India. Nubia N1 based on Helio P10 chipset and the Snapdragon 820 based flagship Z11 has priced them competitively in the market. Selling for Rs 11, 999 and Rs 29,999 respectively, the phones will be available on Amazon India after registrations begin on December 16.
Nubia has been teasing the Z11 for quite some time in the country after it was launched in China for CNY 2,499 (about Rs 25,000) for the 4GB/64GB variant. Forged in a metal unibody design, the device features a 5.5-inch display (1080 X 1920 pixels) with no side bezels on it. It is protected by a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Nubia uses its own Nubia UI 4.0 over the Android 6.0 Marshmallow that has some quick access tricks you can play with. Calling it the ‘Frame Interactive Technology’, the phone can switch between apps, toggle brightness and different screens by just swiping around the bottom or size edges.The phone is powered by a 2.15GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor with 6GB RAM and 64GB ROM storage, competing head on with the OnePlus 3. The storage of Nubia Z11 is expandable up to 200GB using a microSD card.
Nubia Z11 also features a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and phase detection auto-focus built in and dual-tone LED flash. It’s a Sony’s IMX298 sensor coupled to an f/2.0 lens. The front camera has an 8-megapixel 1.4 micron pixel sensor with f2.4 aperture lens with 80-degree wide angle view. The phone packs a 3000mAh battery. The 4G LTE enabled phone supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB Type-C.
