Photo Announcement. ZTE Nubia Z50 Rabbit Edition - New Year special version

ZTE has released a special version of its Nubia Z50 smartphone in China, dedicated to the upcoming Year of the Rabbit (Chinese New Year will not come until January 22, so there is still time to replenish stocks of champagne).

The name of the new smartphone is Nubia 努比亚Z50 中国红 兔年限定版. It's hard to say exactly how this translates. Automatic Chinese translators offer the following options:

  • China Red Year of the Rabbit Limited Edition
  • Chinese Year of the Red Rabbit Limited Edition

So just Nubia Z50 Rabbit Edition.

As you can see, Rabbit Edition differs from the original Nubia Z50 in color. For sure, with the design of the box and with the software, they cheated a little. There is no information about the delivery set.

Why is the rabbit red, if according to the horoscopes the coming year will be the year of the Black Water Rabbit? As far as I know, the color red scares the Chinese New Year monster named Nian. So it's just such a common New Year's color used every year regardless of horoscopes.

And if you google pictures of the coming Chinese New Year, �But you will indeed find a lot of pictures with rabbits in a similar color scheme - gold on red.

Let me briefly remind you of the characteristics.

The latest flagship chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 - we expect well over a million points in AnTuTu.

The top chipset also comes with ultra-fast memory - LPDDR5X and UFS4.0. 12 GB RAM and 512 GB storage. No memory card support.

AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 6.67" (107 cm²). Judging by the pictures, it is strongly rounded on the sides. The resolution is standard high - 1080x2400 (395 ppi).Called gaming smartphones - up to 144 Hz.

Standard battery, 5000 mAh. Wired charging is very fast, although not a record - 80 watts. True, there is no wireless charging.

As always, it's interesting to see how much savings have been made on cameras. Frontalka, most likely, is quite simple. 16 MP.

There are two rear cameras, 64+50 MP.

  • 64 MP - main camera with optical stabilization. The sensor is Sony IMX787, which, somehow, it turns out like this, is not used by anyone except ZTE. (In particular, it is he who stands in their flagship ZTE Axon 40 Ultra).
  • 50 MP - camera "two in one", wide-angle and macro.

Other. Of course, there is an NFC module, Wi-Fi of the latest version, Type-C. Of course, the fingerprint scanner is hidden under the screen. Are LTE bands 7 and 20 supported? No information.

How much Nubia Z50 Rabbit Edition will cost is still unclear. The company store now lists the price of ¥9999 (₽98900, $1410), but it looks more like a pre-plug. Because a regular Nubia Z50 with the same amount of memory costs only ¥3999 (₽39600, $563). Although, of course, options are possible. Suddenly Rabbit Edition is the body gold plated? Or does the package include a small rabbit farm? I don't know.
