In Barcelona, ZTE unveiled its latest foldable phone, the nubia Flip 5G, at MWC 2024, positioning it as a cost-effective alternative to compete with devices like the Motorola Razr 40 and offering a simpler and more affordable option compared to the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The device maintains the “flip” design and technical specifications of the ZTE Libero Flip 5G (launched last year as the brand’s first foldable phone, but was exclusive to Japan). With the nubia Flip 5G, the Chinese manufacturer seems ready to enter the global market and compete with other foldable offerings.

Featuring a flexible 6.9-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate, the internal screen includes a center-hole cutout housing a 16MP selfie camera. The rear camera module, shaped like a ring, includes a 50MP main lens and a 2MP depth sensor. Additionally, there is a 1.43-inch AMOLED external display with a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels for notifications and quick information.

One of the key highlights of the nubia Flip 5G is its cost-effectiveness, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, a mid-range chip paired with options of 6GB or 8GB of RAM and storage options of 128GB or 256GB.

To support the device, it is equipped with a 4,310mAh battery with 33W fast charging. The phone comes with a custom user interface based on Android 13 (which might be disappointing to some people since Google is already preparing for the launch of Android 15).
