ZTE has launched a new smartphone in the Indian market called the ZTE Nubia N2. The Nubia N2 is a mid-range device with long battery life available at Rs 15,999. Now the smartphone is priced at Rs. 11,999.
It is the successor to the Nubia N1; which was released last year at a price tag of Rs 11,999. The Nubia N2 comes in Champagne Gold and Black Gold color options; exclusively available on Amazon India.
Nubia N2 looks well built and has a metal unibody design. The front looks clean with no Nubia/ZTE branding; just the traditional home button was also serving the purpose of a fingerprint sensor. The back has Nubia branding; single rear camera placed at the top left corner and iPhone 7 like antenna bands.
The red ring on the fingerprint scanner looks oddly placed. The red ring was for older Nubia phones which came with capacitative touch keys.
The mobile flaunts a 5.5 inch (720×1280) HD AMOLED display with 2.5D curved glass on top. It’s driven by a tried and tested MediaTek MT6750 SOC along with 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The Octa-Core processor has a max clock speed of 1.5 GHz and comes with the Mali T860 GPU.
Additionally, it offers 64 GB of internal storage expandable to 64 GB using a micro-SD card.
Selfie Phone with Great Battery Life – Nubia N2
The N2 has a single 13 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, and dual LED flash. The front side sports a wide angled, 16 MP, f/2.0 aperture selfie shooter with some filters inbuilt into the camera app.
Most selfies phones come with thinner design and lower battery life, but the Nubia N2 offers a great battery life with 5000 mAH battery capacity.
The smartphone is also not too thick as it measures 7.9 mm in thickness and weighing approx 180g.
ZTE claims that the N2 can run for 3 full working days on a single charge.
Unfortunately, the phone ships with Android M out of the box; we expect most mid-range phones to come with the Android Nougat now to offer improved user experience.
It has all the essential connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS and USB Type-C.
When compared to the Nubia N1 which has been a top seller in the best battery phones, due to affordability (price Rs. 12,000); new Nubia N2 has some upgrades. The major upgrade is the front selfie camera which now has a 16 Megapixel lens and offers improved selfie clicks. Though the older Nubia N1 also has a decent 13 Megapixel front selfie camera.
The price looks to be high considering the upgrades as the new smartphone costs Rs. 4000 in comparison to the Nubia N1.
