Nubia’s First Phone With Large 1-Inch 35mm Camera Module Leaked; Recommended for the Sony IMX989 sensor: Full details

According to a tipster, Nubia is working on a new smartphone with a significantly improved camera. An image of a prototype leaked online alongside the company’s existing Nubia Z50S Pro smartphone. Compared to the Nubia Z50S Pro, the unreleased smartphone is said to have a much larger rear camera module, according to the tipster, which will house a 35mm camera with a 1-inch sensor. The company has not yet revealed any details about its plans to launch a new smartphone.

Tipster Digital Chat Station (translated from Chinese) leaked an image of the alleged Nubia flagship smartphone via Weibo. The prototype can be seen alongside the Nubia Z50S Pro, which launched in China last month. Aside from the unreleased handset’s larger rear camera module, both phones look almost identical, suggesting the company could launch it as the top-of-the-line Z50S series.

According to Digital Chat Station, the upcoming Nubia smartphone will come with a 35mm camera with a 1-inch sensor. The phone’s main camera will use a Sony IMX989 sensor, the tipster says, adding that the company needs to “tweak the volume” ahead of the smartphone’s launch and that that could happen at a later date.

Simply comparing the sizes of the two smartphones reveals that the Nubia prototype’s 1-inch sensor takes up much more space than the Nubia Z50S Pro’s 1/1.49-inch camera sensor.

While the rear camera module on the latter also protrudes from the back to some extent, it seems users will need to use the upcoming Nubia smartphone with a back cover to protect the protruding module, like the Pixel 6 and Pixel -7 series of Google smartphones.

Given the close resemblance to the Nubia Z50S Pro – apart from the camera – it seems that the upcoming smartphone could come with similar specs. Launched in China in July, the handset is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, packs a 50-megapixel triple camera on the rear and sports a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a Peak brightness of 1,200 nits.
