Nubia is a smartphone brand that began its journey in 2002 as a subsidiary of the firm ZTE. For several years, Nubia had differential models with respect to ZTE operating as a parallel brand, sometimes luxury others more economical, depending on each country’s models and market needs.
It was not until 2015 that it bet as an independent firm with the aim of creating smartphones with its own identity. Currently, Nubia Technology Co Ltd still belongs to the ZTE corporation, which holds the largest number of shares, but has received a significant injection of capital from the Chinese investment group Suning Rundong on the occasion of the international and global launch of the firm.
The Chinese firm Nubia launched the Nubia Z17 in mid-2016 as its new flagship, but just a few months later they launched an updated version that bet on the same high-end technical profile but joined the new design trends with an 18:9 panel and reduced frames. Its name is Nubia Z17s!
The terminal is available in a single dark blue tone and has been applied both on the glass that covers both sides and on the metal that surrounds its perimeter. On resistance, Although the glass often conveys a sense of fragility, the design of the Nubia Z17s feels very solid in hand and has come out without a scratch from the occasional fall.
Nubia Red Magic 6
The Nubia Red Magic 6 is one of the most powerful cell phones of 2021, Mobile phones designed mainly for gaming are not the most abundant in the Android panorama, but this is no excuse for there not to be a select group of brands that are committed to the so-called ‘gaming smartphones’.
Red Magic is one of those brands, The ‘gaming‘ style that prevails in the devices aimed at the ‘gamer’ public determines that its design is marked by aggressive lines, strident colors, and LEDs that light up in different shades. The Red Magic 6 does not shy away from these qualities, but neither does it look too different from what we could define as a ‘normal mobile’.
It is a design that offers a feeling of high quality, also of a certain fragility. Especially because its back face, completely smooth and polished except for the upper rectangular module, slips in the hand as if it were smeared with oil. Given the dimensions of the Red Magic 6, it is all too easy for it to slip out of your hands if you are careless.
Nubia Z40 PRO
At the ZTE booth at Mobile World Congress 2022, we found the Nubia Z40 Pro, one of the few phone launches during the show, and perhaps one of the most attractive options you haven’t heard of.
The Nubia Z40 Pro follows the design lines of its predecessor, which in turn was inspired by Samsung’s Galaxy Note. It is an attractive phone, with a balanced weight for its size (199 grams, 6.67 inches), which stands out above all for its raw power.
Nubia’s new beast comes with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, Adreno 730 graphics, between 8 and 16 GB of RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage between 128 and 512 GB.
