The Nubia Prague S is a mid-ranger with a DAC and iris scanner
ZTE-subsidiary Nubia has a brand new global website featuring a very puzzling smartphone called “My Prague.” It was imaged upon the Czech capital’s preponderance of creativity that’s renowned throughout circles of high culture. Nubia is introducing its sequel to its My Prague handset, but this time around, there’s no Prague for you. It’s just the Prague S now.
While the Prague S can be pegged as one of the mid-ranger class in 2016 with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, it does sport a 5.2-inch full HD Super AMOLED display. Storage comes in at 64GB with 3GB of RAM. The small 2,200mAh battery does have fast-charge tech that helps it gain a quarter-charge in 10 minutes.
Both cameras put Samsung’s ISOCELL tech along with five-element lenses. The 13-megapixel rear camera has an aperture of f/2.2. The 8-megapixel front camera has a f/2.4 aperture and a 78-degree field of view.
Nubia has also taken a page from its Z9 smartphone and has added Frame interative Technology as well as an iris scanner to boot (no fingerprint sensor, though). The Prague S also totes a DAC on that can output 7.1 surround sound at 24 bits. Unfortunately, software’s stuck on an unnamed build of Android Lollipop below nubia UI 3.0.
The dual-SIM Prague S will sell for CNY 2,399 ($365). The single SIM version, which has more band support, will go for CNY 2,499 ($380). Both come in either “Rose Gold” or “Pale Moon Silver” finishes.
Pre-orders have begun in China, first ship date comes January 23.
