ZTE has launched a bunch of smartphones under the Nubia M2 series. Now adding on to the list, we have yet another offering which is the Nubia M2 Play. This is the newest offering from the company which sports a decent set of specs for the price. This sit right between the high-end Nubia models and the Nubia M2 Lite which was launched earlier, giving users a bunch of options to choose from.

The Nubia M2 Play sports a 5.5″ HD display on the front, which means it has a resolution of 1280 x 720. This is certainly not the most pixel-dense display but you can’t complain at this price. However, the best part about it is that it is running on Android 7.0 Nougat based nubiaUI 5.0 skin. Internally, it is powered by an octa-core (4×1.4GHz and 4×1.1GHz) Snapdragon 435 SoC. This is coupled with 3GB of RAM and it also has 32GB of internal storage as well. You can further expand this storage via a microSD card upto 128GB as well for adding more files, media, etc.

In terms of the camera, we are looking at a 13MP Sony CMOS sensor at the back which has a f/2.2 aperture. On the front, we have a 5MP selfie shooter with a f/2.4 aperture. The entire package is kept powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and the connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, GPS, and Glonass.

To give some perspective, the Nubia M2 Lite sports the same display. But it is powered by a slightly less powerful Helio P10 processor. At the time of the launch, it was running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow which has been upgraded here with the Nubia M2 Play. So overall, the Nubia M2 Play is not a major departure, but if you want more power then the Nubia M2 Play is the one to go for.

Talking about the pricing and availability, the company has made this official in China, however, we don’t have any info as to when the Nubia M2 Play will be available or at what price. We suggest you stay tuned for more info about it.
