The ZTE Nubia Z40 Pro Comes with a Massive Screen and Qualcomm’s Latest Chipset

If you’re looking for an alternative to the usual line-up of Android smartphone brands, then you might want to check out what ZTE has on offer. Announced back in February of 2022, the ZTE Nubia Z40 Pro packs a lot of great specs, and it’s shaping up to be a serious player in the Android flagship landscape. The phone packs a massive display and a powerful processor, but what else is inside ZTE’s latest premium smartphone? Let’s take a look.

Design and Display

To start off, the Z40 Pro comes in a rather large design, with glass panels covering the front and back of the phone, wrapped around an aluminum frame that goes around the sides. The front of the phone features a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, with a built-in fingerprint sensor. For comparison, the screen is around the same size as the one on the Google Pixel 6 Pro.

The display should be great for watching movies and other forms of content consumption, given that large smartphone displays are all the rage these days. There are also dual speakers on the Z40 Pro with stereo sound. The right-hand side of the phone features the volume and power buttons, while the bottom of the Z40 Pro houses the USB C charging port. There’s no microSD card slot, unfortunately.

Internal Specs and Battery

The Nubia Pro 40 comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, making it one of the latest flagship devices to feature the new chipset. There are several storage and RAM options which include 128GB of storage and 8GB RAM, 256GB and 8GB RAM, 256GB and 12GB RAM, 512GB and 12GB RAM, and 1TB and 16GB RAM, putting the phone into laptop territory. Safe to say, the Z40 Pro will have no problems when it comes to performance, especially if you’re after something to play games on.

The phone also comes with a 5000 mAh battery, with support for 80W fast-charging.

Software and Cameras

The Z40 Pro comes pre-installed with Android 12, running under ZTE’s MyOS 12 Android skin. As for imaging capabilities, there’s a triple camera setup on the back which houses a 64-megapixel, f/1.7, 35mm main camera, alongside an 8-megapixel, f/3.4, 125mm telephoto lens and a 50-megapixel, f/2.2, 14mm ultrawide sensor. The front of the phone has a single 16MP hole-punch camera.

If you’re planning on getting this phone, it’s priced at around £500-£520 in the United Kingdom (at the time of writing), making it a bit more affordable compared to phones like the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy S22 series.
