Zub’s subsidiary, Nubia has just introduced its newest high-performance smartphone to the Chinese market with top-of-the-line specs, drop screen, premium finish, powerful cameras and an amazing special edition celebrating Van Gogh.
The Nubia Z18 arrives with everything a high-performance device in 2018 needs: large screen 5.99-inch Full HD + resolution, 2.5D finishing glass, 845 Snapdragon processor and variants of 6GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage or powerful 8 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM.
Three colors have been announced for the device: Midnight Black, Nebula Red and Van Gogh Edition (all you can see below) all with a glass back cover and a 3D finish, where the sides are more curved.
A major highlight of the device is for the rear cameras: with two sensors of 16 MP and 24 MP each, Nubia says that both modules have f / 1.6 aperture . The main camera features optical image stabilization (OIS), electronic image stabilization (EIS), focus by phase detection (PDAF) and a chip dedicated to image processing : the Spectra 280.
The Nubia Z18 features 3,450 mAh battery and NeoCharge 2.5 fast charging with its own manufacturer’s 18W power and USB Type-C connector. In addition, the company ensures greater safety and battery savings with NeoPower 3.0 technology
The manufacturer also implements the Nubia Evolution Tensor, which is described as an evolutionary machine learning technology: it uses deep learning skills and combines algorithms to improve the operating system and photographs. Because it is compatible with Coffe, Pytorch and TensorFlow frameworks, the company guarantees learning ability with 200% improvement.
The special edition presented by Nubia is inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night painting. With traces of the author’s surrealism, the company offers the extremely exclusive finishing that we have not seen on competitors’ smartphones until today and we hope that this differential becomes more and more standard, since it emphasizes not only the device but also the very position of the brand that gives importance to art and highlights outstanding painters and artists.
The Van Gogh Edition has a special box with Printed Starry Night, a small card also with the same painting and a back cover that goes from blue to yellow and with the words “Starry Night” highlighted. Impressive, is not it?
