Photo Announcement. ZTE Nubia Z40S Pro Starry Night - beautiful... And with two chargers included

Well done, Nubians. What else can I say.

ZTE has officially unveiled the ZTE Nubia Z40S Pro Starry Night (aka 努比亚Z40S Pro星空典藏版) smartphone. As you can easily understand, this is a special version of the top smartphone ZTE Nubia Z40S Pro. But it is dedicated not to toys or comics, but to Van Gogh's famous painting Starry Night.

About the characteristics.

Top chipset Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. We expect more than a million points in AnTuTu.

Memory. Unlike the ancestor, where there were a bunch of varieties from 8 + 128 GB to 18 + 1024 GB inclusive, here there is only one variety. 12 GB RAM� and 512 GB of permanent memory. Support for memory cards, of course, no.

AMOLED screen. Diagonal 6.67 "(107 cm²), resolution 1080x2400 (395 ppi). Huge refresh rate - up to 144 Hz. For games - that's it.

Battery. The original Z40S Pro comes with two different batteries. Or a smaller battery, but charging faster - 4600 mAh and 120 watts. Or more charging, but charging is not so crazy - 5000 mAh and 80 watts. In Starry Night Edition we see the second option - i.e. where is the bigger battery.

An interesting moment. Two chargers are included in the standard package. C�Standard, 80 W. And a three-port, but slightly slower - 65 watts. A beautiful response to all sorts of pseudo-environmental initiatives, I think.

Cameras. The front camera is simple - 16 MP - and that's it.

There are three rear cameras. 64+50+8 MP. The main camera, wide-angle and telephoto periscope with a fivefold optical zoom. All but the width are equipped with optical stabilization.

Primary sensor Sony IMX787. Curiously, the focal length of the main module is 35mm instead of the traditional 26mm. What does it mean that you will see the picture blicker, bigger. In fact, such a picture, if I understand correctly, is closer to what you see with your own eyes. But, on the other hand, less will fit into the frame. On the third hand, the wide-angle module here is also clearly quite serious. So as long as the lighting is good, there shouldn't be any problems. Zoom out, zoom in, do whatever you want.

Other. There is an NFC module, support for 5G networks, a sixth Wi-Fi. The fingerprint scanner is hidden under the screen. No standard audio output.

ZTE Nubia Z40S Pro Starry Night Edition will cost ¥4999 (₽42100, $679). Those. ¥500 (₽4220, $67.9) more expensive than the original Z40S Pro with the same amount of memory. Beauty is not free.
