Nubia, although not as widely recognized in the international smartphone market, occasionally launches devices that cater to global consumers. One such upcoming device is the Nubia Z60 Ultra, which is generating excitement due to its immersive full-screen display, a feature made possible by its under-display camera technology.
The global launch of the Nubia Z60 Ultra is scheduled for December 19 at 7:00 AM EST, as announced on the brand's global website. Intriguingly, this launch coincides with the device's debut in its home country, China, set to occur approximately six hours earlier.
A standout aspect of the Z60 Ultra is its design. In a market where top-tier smartphones often adhere to safe, simplistic designs, the Z60 Ultra differentiates itself with a distinctive camera setup that proudly displays each lens separately. This design choice has sparked mixed reactions online, with some finding it flashy, while others welcome the change. The brand has also teased a special Starry Night Collector’s Edition for the Z60 Ultra in China, raising hopes that this variant might also be available globally.

As for specifications, the Nubia Z60 Ultra is expected to feature a 6.8-inch OLED display with a 1.5K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The absence of a punch-hole in the screen emphasizes its full-screen experience, courtesy of Nubia's fifth-generation in-display selfie camera solution.
Under the hood, the Z60 Ultra is likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, coupled with a hefty 6,000mAh battery that supports 80W charging. Building on the foundation set by its predecessor, the device is anticipated to offer up to 16 GB of LPDDR5x RAM and up to 1 TB of UFS 4.0 storage. Running on a MyOS-based Android 14 operating system, the device has also been confirmed to have an IP68 rating, indicating its dustproof and water-resistant capabilities.
In terms of camera capabilities, the Z60 Ultra is expected to sport an OIS-assisted 50-megapixel main camera, a 50-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 64-megapixel OmniVision OV64B periscope telephoto camera, capable of up to 3x optical zoom. A 16MP sensor is anticipated for the front camera.
