Ni Fei, ZTE’s President of Mobile Devices, has announced the launch of the Nubia Z50 Ultra, which will include a 4th-generation under-display camera.
In a detailed post on Weibo, he stated that the Nubia brand has been in the smartphone industry for more than ten years and that the latest Ultra model will include a new solution that has taken six years to develop and represents the “pinnacle of nubia technology.”
ZTE owns a portion of the Nubia brand, and the network equipment and smartphone manufacturer controls its operations in China.
Devices with selfie cameras built into the screen have been available for more than two years, beginning with the Axon 20, and the Nubia brand received the UD treatment with the release of the Red Magic 7 Pro gaming device.
The Nubia Z50 Ultra will be the first all-around flagship to include the feature, and we’re not surprised Ni is banking on it.
The phone’s schematics were leaked by Digital Chat Station, and we can see pointy edges with flat sides. The camera island will be rectangular, with the main shooters being placed on the left-hand side.
The leaked images also show a notification or alert slider with a textured surface. The phone’s bottom will have a speaker grille, a SIM card slot, and a USB-C port, while the top will have an IR blaster.
A spy photo of the device surfaced earlier this week, and we expect an official announcement to be made within the next month.
