THE ZTE presented its new high-end Android smartphone for 2022, the nubia z40 pro. This is a mobile device equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, a camera with up to 9x optical magnification, among other assets.
The new model follows on from the Nubia Z30 Pro launched in 2021, relatively popular in China and other Asian markets, but uncommon in Europe. Now, for 2022, the new model brings reinforced features and a bolder design.
This is the new smartphone from ZTE, the Nubia Z40 Pro
The ZTE Nubia 40 Pro smartphone is bold in design with straight lines and a markedly rectangular shape. It has sharp edges, with the screen slightly rounded at the corners and curved at both edges. In summary, a duality of design language, with the rear and general format contrasting with the appearance and implementation of the screen.
We highlight the new look for the camera module on the rear where we now have three cameras with vertical alignment. Its predecessor had a total of four image sensors, arranged in an “L” shape at the rear.
The construction of the new smartphone model ZTE Nubia 40 Pro is pragmatic with two glass panels and a rigid metal frame. The glass used has an anti-reflective finish, with the device measuring 161.9 x 72.9 x 8.4 mm, weighing 199 grams.
It’s ZTE’s new flagship for 2022
The two color schemes for the ZTE Nubia Z40 Pro smartphone.
The new ZTE Nubia Z40 Pro smartphone is available in two color schemes dubbed Interstellar Black and Galaxy, with a special edition inspired by the anime “The Outcast” dedicated to fans of the brand and the anime itself.
This phone stands out for its slightly curved OLED screen, 6.67 inches diagonally, with a Full-HD+ resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, for a density of 395 ppp. The display also features a high refresh rate at 144 Hz and 20:9 aspect ratio.
The highlight is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor that equips this new ZTE. We also have LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, the fastest memory standards today.

The new phone has a triple camera lineup led by the 64 MP Sony IMX787 sensor with OIS. It has a second 50MP ultra-wide-angle camera with a 116-degree viewing angle. The third camera, with 8 MP of resolution, stands out for its optical magnification of up to 9 times, also with OIS and periscopic implementation for the lenses.
On the front of the ZTE Nubia Z40 Pro smartphone we find a conventional 16 MP camera for selfies and video calls. We can also point out the dual SIM, 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GNSS, NFC connectivity, as well as the USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB Type-C) port.
The device has a 5,000mAh battery with fast charging at 80W and wireless charging up to 15W of power. We also have dual speakers, linear vibration motor, as well as the on-screen fingerprint reader.
