nubia has launched its third device in the nubia M series, the nubia M2 Play in India. The nubia M2 Play is a mid-range Android smartphone that has a low price tag in contrast to its exciting specifications.
The smartphone was launched in China earlier in June, and has now been brought to the Indian populace to promote the series and brand in the country.
nubia M2 Play Review
The nubia M2 Play runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with nubia’s custom User Interface for its Android smartphones, nubia UI version 5.0 layered on top.
Design & Display
The smartphone has a metal unibody design and uses a physical home button which is designed differently from what we are used to on smartphones. It has a 5.5-inch IPS display with an HD (1280 * 720) pixel resolution and 2.5D curved glass.
Memory & Performance
The M2 Play is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 435 processor with a clock speed of 1.4GHz and an Adreno 505 GPU which assists it in handling graphics operations.
It comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 128GB using an external microSD card.
The nubia M2 Play sports a 13MP camera which uses a Sony CMOS sensor and has a f/2.2 aperture and Hybrid focus (PDAF + CAF) at the rear with a LED flash for taking bright pictures even in low-light conditions.
Selfie lovers are also taken care of with a 5MP camera which sits on the top bezel at the front and uses a 84-degree wide-angle lens with a f/2.4 aperture to take selfies of an even larger audience (Groupies).
The smartphone packs a 3000mAh battery which can take you through a whole day before needing a recharge, provided you do not perform too many resource-demanding tasks on it.
Connectivity & Hardware
The M2 Play comes with a hybrid dual Nano SIM slot and supports 4G LTE networks. It has GPS with GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and has a fingerprint sensor embedded into its home button for an extra layer of security.
