Colour options include Cosmic Black, Sunshine Gold, and Flowing Lilac. The phone has an HDdual rear camera with a 50-megapixel sensor, paired with a 16 MP front camera. Functions include multi-angle hovering shots, palm dual-camera selfies, dual-screen simultaneous previews, handheld DV retro-style shooting, and AI-enhanced image processing.

The recommended retail price for the 8 GB+256GB variant is USD 499, and the 12GB +512 GB version costs USD 699 (excluding EU and UK). Reservations can now be placed with the Nubia website, except in the EU and UK, and worldwide sales start on 23 April, again apart from the EU and UK.
