Nubia has been teasing the arrival of the Nubia Z40 series since last month. Today, the company took to Weibo to confirm that it will be offering a magnetic wireless charging feature on the Z40 Pro.
Apple has been offering a magnetic charging feature dubbed MagSafe charging since 2020. The iPhone 12 series and iPhone 13 lineup carry support for MagSafe charging. As far as the Android camp is concerned, Android smartphone OEMs are yet to launch a device with wireless magnetic charging support.
The poster released by Nubia reveals that the upcoming Nubia Z40 Pro flagship phone will be the first Android phone that will arrive with support for wireless magnetic charging. Nubia is yet to share more details on the feature.
Last year, Realme introduced its iteration of magnetic wireless charging technology called Realme Flash. While the technology offers 50W charging, it is yet to mass-produce it. Probably, after Nubia, other smartphone brands may launch phones with magnetic wireless charging this year.
Coming back to the Nubia Z40 Pro, it will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. It will be accompanied by a new aerospace-grade heat dissipation system. The ZTE phone with model number NX701J was recently spotted at the Geekbench benchmarking platform. The listing revealed that it is equipped with 16 GB of RAM and Android 11. It scored 1228 in the single-core test and 3379 in the multi-core test of Geekbench.
It was revealed in the previous week that the Nubia Z40 Pro will be arriving as the world’s first phone with a Sony IMX787 lens and the industry’s first custom 35mm lens. The other details of the Z40 Pro are under the wraps.
