The Nubia N2 has officially launched in India at a price of Rs 15,999. The handset is now available online.
The device features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a an HD resolution (1280x720). It’s powered by a Mediatek 6750 platform that offers 8x ARM-Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and 1 GHz in two clusters of four units. A Mali-T860 GPU provides the graphical grunt. This is backed by 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
Internal storage is 64 GB and is expandable to 128 GB via a microSD card.
In terms of connectivity, you get support for LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS, GLONASSS, BDS, etc.
The camera on the back is an f/2.2 13 MP sensor with PDAF and EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation). The front camera is more powerful, featuring a 16 MP sensor.
Sadly, the device is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow (NeoVision 6.0, as modified by Nubia), with Nubia UI 4.0 on top.
The star of the show is, however, the 5,000 mAh battery. Nubia claims that this battery, along with Nubia’s own modifications to the OS, should result in two days’ use from the unit. Nubia also claims that the fingerprint reader will be fast, promising a response time of 0.2 seconds, which is the same that OnePlus promises on the OnePlus 5.
As with most phones today, the design of the device is very reminiscent of the iPhone 7, down to the antenna lines. The body itself is made from aluminium.
