The Nubia M2 from ZTE has touched down on Malaysia and will retail at RM 1699 (approx. $400). The Nubia M2 cleared certification back in May and is finally out in the open. This is also followed by budget oriented devices, the Nubia N1 Lite and Nubia M2 Lite which carry price tags, RM 599 (approx. $140) and RM 1099 (approx. $260) respectively.
Compared to the Nubia Z17 which has enough firepower to rival major flagships, the Nubia M2 is a little more pocket friendly. The Nubia M2 features a more modest set of specifications but at the same time stays strong within its price bracket. With 4GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch FHD display, 64GB of on board storage and powered by the Snapdragon 625 chipset you’re still gaining a pretty premium experience for this price.
Though this isn’t as powerful as the flagship Z17, it still carries enough power to put devices in the same price range to shame. The Nubia M2 even features a decent dual camera shooter which will allow you to take great low light pictures thanks to the Sony sensor inside. This in turn also works in tandem with ZTE’s NeoVision 6.5 software on board for enhanced pictures.
Coming to the Nubia M2 Lite, it stands a rung below the M2 on the Nubia ladder with 4GB RAM/32GB ROM with the N1 Lite staying at the bottom with a moderate 2GB RAM/16GB ROM. The M2 Lite is powered by the MediaTek MTK M6750 SoC and N1 Lite by the MediaTek MTK M6737 SoC, both of which are quad core processors.
The only major caveat is that all three devices ship with Marshmallow out of the box. Nubia UI 4.0 is the skin sitting atop of Android here. But we’re optimistic about the Nubia M2 getting the bump to Nougat, at least. Check out the link below if these devices have caught your eye.
