Official Nubia Z40 Pro: all about the brand's new top of the range
Design and display
The design of Nubia Z40 Pro it does not differ too much from what was seen with the previous one Z30 Pro. Once again we find an elegant style and a large photographic module that occupies a large part of the upper portion of the back, made of AG glass. Frontally we find a display with BORDI curvi, optimized frames and a panel punch-hole for the selfie camera. Specifically, it is a display AMOLED 10-bit from 6,67 "Full HD + (2400 x 1080 pixels) in 20: 9 with density of 395 PPI, refresh rate a 144 Hz and maximum brightness of 1.000 nits. Below it is the sensor for unlocking with fingerprint.
The shell measures 161,9 x 72,9 x 8,4 mm, weighs 199 grams and is available in two colors: Interstellar Black and Galaxy. An alternative variant is also available, a limited edition dedicated to the Outcast anime that differs in color and package equipment.
Nubia Z40 Pro is part of the first wave of top of the range equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen1, Qualcomm's Samsung 4nm SoC. It is a chip with octa-core ARMv9 CPU (1 x 3, GHz X2 + 3 x 2,5 GHz A710 + 4 x 1,8 GHz A510) and Adreno 730 GPU. Memory cuts include only 8 GB of RAM LPDDR5 e 256 GB of non-expandable UFS 3.1 storage space.
The whole is combined with a dissipation system 35.000 mm² with new materials derived from those used for aerospace components. It is a graphene plate with micro-cavities, a system that would allow it to greatly increase the dissipative capacity. According to Nubia tests, the smartphone would be able to run a game like Geshin Impact at only 25 ° C. A considerable milestone, if you think that smartphones with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 like Xiaomi 12 Pro have proven to have temperature problems.
Among other innovations, we have for the first time on board an Android smartphone, support for magnetic wireless charging a 15W. To complement it is the variant Gravity Edition, where a smaller battery is charged with the magnetic attachment 4.600 mAh.
In the standard version there is instead a double cell battery from 5.000 mAh, equipped with wired fast charging a 80W. The connectivity compartment of Z40 Pro includes dual SIM support 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GNSS, NFC and USB Type-C 3.1. The multimedia sector, on the other hand, offers a couple of stereo speaker with Snapdragon Sound and DTS: X Ultra, accompanied by X-Axis vibration motor. As for the software, we have MyOS 12 based on Android 12.
Moving on to the photographic sector, Nubia Z40 Pro adds an intriguing novelty to its triple camera. It is the first smartphone in the world to mount the original Sony IMX787, sensor with dimensions of 1 / 1.3 " and the world's first custom lens from 35 mm. According to the company's statements, this custom lens would guarantee a series of advantages: -35% image distortion, + 80% light absorption and + 78% sharpness. Using a 35mm lens would allow you to have a perspective more similar to that of the human eye.
The triple camera used has a configuration from 64 + 50 + 8 MP f/1.65-2.2-3.4, including OIS, 14mm wide angle from 116 ° e periscopial telephoto lens OV08A10 at 125 mm with 9x optical zoom and OIS.
