The nubia Z50 series will arrive on December 19, the brand revealed on its official Weibo channel. The lineup will have a device with a new custom-made camera with a 35 mm equivalent focal length, which is the light input of a 1” sensor.
However, nubia worded the announcement in such a way that we’re unlikely to see an actual 1-inch sensor; rather, we’re getting a shooter with a fancy lens and some software improvements.
Ever since ZTE overhauled its entire management in 2019 and had to pay a $1 billion fine for breaking trade embargoes, we’ve seen its nubia sub-brand release only one nubia Z smartphone – there was the nubia Z40 Pro (with two variants with different batteries and charging), the nubia Z30 Pro, and the nubia Z20.
We have to wait for the event next Monday to learn whether this will continue into the Z50 lineup. Hopefully, nubia will share more teasers in the seven days leading to the launch.
