Weekly poll: Is the ZTE nubia Z50S Pro the perfect all-round powerhouse for you?

The nubia Z50S Pro, featuring the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2, is the second phone with this chipset after the Red Magic 8S Pro. While it prioritizes camera performance over gaming, it shares many similarities with its gaming-focused counterpart.

The nubia Z50S Pro boasts a unique 35mm lens, a feature exclusive to nubia and Axon smartphones, and typically found in actual cameras. The design exudes a classic camera vibe, combining metal and faux leather elements.

The nubia Z50S Pro features a high-quality 6.78″ AMOLED display, which is the same size as the Red Magic. However, it offers sharper visuals (452ppi vs. 400ppi) and 100% DCI-P3 coverage. This ensures an accurate viewfinder experience for the camera, allowing you to adjust manual controls and apply 3D LUTs with confidence, as the photo captured matches what you saw on the screen.

With a 120Hz display and 1,000Hz touch sampling, gaming on the nubia Z50S Pro is a smooth experience. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 chipset provides enough power to handle AAA titles, but it is passively cooled, so longer gaming sessions might require occasional breaks. While there’s no extravagant 24GB RAM option, you can opt for a generous 1TB storage if needed.

The nubia Z50S Pro comes with a 5,100mAh battery, supporting 80W wired charging, just like the 8S Pro (which has a larger 6,000mAh battery). As for the display and cameras, the phone features a 16MP selfie camera housed in a punch hole, rather than being placed under the display.

With a starting price of CNY 3,700 for the 12/256GB model, the nubia Z50S Pro offers even greater affordability compared to the base Red Magic 8S Pro, which costs CNY 4,000 for the 8/128GB variant and CNY 4,800 for the 12/256GB version.

The Axon 50 Ultra, set to launch next month, made a change from its predecessor by switching to a 24mm lens in front of a 64MP 1/1.73” sensor (dropping the 35mm camera). It also features a 50MP ultra-wide (116°) and a 50MP periscope (3x) lens.

While using the older Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, the Axon closely matches the nubia in terms of battery capacity with 5,000mAh and an 80W charge rate.

Among other large and powerful phones with remarkable cameras is the OnePlus 11, available in a 12/256GB model for CNY 4,000 in China. While this version doesn’t feature the SD 8 Gen 2 Plus, it boasts Hasselblad-branded cameras with 50+32+48MP lenses, including a 2x zoom camera and a 115° ultra-wide lens. The phone also sports a 6.7″ 120Hz AMOLED display with a QHD+ LTPO panel.

Another option is the Oppo Reno10 Pro+, offering a 16/256GB model for CNY 3,900. Despite using the older Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, it boasts a 6.74″ 120Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,240 x 2,772px.

The phone’s camera setup includes a 50MP main camera with a 1/1.56″ sensor and OIS, along with a 64MP tele cam featuring a 3x periscope lens. However, the 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 112° lens falls a bit short in comparison.

Certainly, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Oppo Find X6/X6 Pro, and Xiaomi 13 Pro and 13 Ultra are also noteworthy options, but they come with higher price tags compared to the nubia Z50S Pro.

It’s important to note that the Chinese prices serve as the basis for comparison, as the global availability of the Z50S Pro is yet to be confirmed.
