ZTE is unique because of its use of 35mm lens on the main cameras of some of its flagships, like the nubia Z50S Pro and the Axon 40 Ultra before it. And it seems ready to take the next step by delivering a 35mm camera with 1-inch type sensor.
Digital Chat Station shared the image of a prototype nubia flagship sitting next to the current nubia Z50S Pro. It puts into perspective just how much bigger the lens and resulting camera module have to be in order to accommodate a 1-inch sensor over the current 1/1.49-inch unit in the Z50S Pro.
The tipster goes on to say that the phone in the image uses the Sony IMX989 sensor and that nubia will release the phone after it manages to optimize its volume.
Giant camera island aside, the two phones look identical, down to the placement of the buttons. So we could be looking at a nubia Z50S Ultra.
At first it looked like a turntable, vinyl player, with dots on the border to adjust speed
Zte is the company who actually care about real photography. Not just playing with numbers. But the 85mm lens is more important to me. It's the area all phones are lagging. Please ZTE... Consider a good sensor for this lens too...
