Lately, ZTE has been quite active in India covering online turf with its Nubia branded smartphones. The latest entrant is Nubia M2 lite that includes a 16MP selfie camera and flaunts a competitive price tag of 13,999 INR.
The new Nubia Phone measures 7.68mm in thickness which is pretty reasonable considering a 3000mAh battery inside. The 5.5-inch display has 1280 x 720 pixels (HD) spread across it and is layered with a 2.5D glass on top. Of course, you can find quite a few phones brandishing sharper full HD displays, but with the SoC in question, HD should prove to be a better choice.
Like other popular ‘selfie experts’, this one too relies on 1.5 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. And the SoC will drive Android Marshmallow based Nubia UI 4.0 on the M2 Lite.
The 16MP front camera that takes center stage is accompanied by wide f/2.0 aperture optics and soft LED flash. On the other hand, you will find a 13MP snapper with f/2.2 aperture lens mounted on its rear.
Other noteworthy features include Fingerprint sensor clubbed with the home button, Hybrid dual SIM slot, 4G, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4/5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0, GPS + GLONASS.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Eric Hu, Country Head, nubia India said, “Nubia as a brand identifies with the youth. In India we see young people with a lot of energy, passion and desire to do more in society. M2 Lite is a product inspired by such youngsters who are creating a mark in society. We have created a product that looks stylish, matches the aspiration levels and performs superlatively. Be yourself is not just a tagline we believe in it and with the M2 Lite our customers can capture moments that our true to their style. ”
With most online-exclusives dialing down their game, Nubia has a good chance of luring in customers with its high specs to price ratio.
