After showing the long-awaited new high-end smartphones at MWC 2017 such as LG G6, Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, and Sony Xperia XA1, XA1 Ultra, XZS and XZ Premium, we also have a budget segment handset called the Nubia N1 Lite from ZTE. Unlike what one might think, it is not a product with lower size display compared to the current Nubia N1, but simply of a new version equipped with a less powerful hardware and designed for budget segment.
The Nubia N1 Lite features 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and it is powered by the 64-bit MediaTek MT6737 processor clubbed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage which can be further expanded via microSD card up to 128GB.
For optics, the ZTE N1 Lite bears an 8-megapixel autofocus camera at the rear with f/2.0 aperture, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama, HDR and dual LED flash. It can shoot video in 720p at 30 frames per second. There is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with built-in beautification app to enhance your selfie, and front LED flash to capture bright selfies in low light conditions.
The Nubia N1 Lite runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and packs a 3000mAh battery under the hood. It also supports a fingerprint sensor on the back that can unlock the phone in 0.3 seconds. “This allows for rapid response, enabling seamless locking and unlocking of the phone, internal apps and even sensitive files,” said Nubia.
On the connectivity front, includes 4G FDD LTE, 3G, WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro USB 2.0 and 3.5mm audio jack options.
