Nubia My Prague: 5.2-inch, Super AMOLED, Hi-Fi audio, 8MP front camera

Quality smartphone names are rare. How many times have you seen a phone named after the company, with a string of numbers or letters after it? The typical, boring nomenclatures are common with smartphones nowadays, but finding a smartphone with a unique name and unique software experience is still a cherished rarity. In a market in which the latest and greatest specs and features are standard, having a “little something extra” cannot hurt.

Which is why the latest news regarding ZTE subsidiary Nubia is even more impressive. The company has unveiled a new smartphone at a European conference in Prague, but the name is a little refreshing: the new smartphone will be called “My Prague,” and it comes in two versions: the My Prague (original) and the My Prague Elite.

Nubia has pulled out all the stops with this new personal phone: the Nubia My Prague is 140 grams light, 5.5mm thin, features dual-SIM card slots (nano-SIM and micro-SIM compatibility), USB On-The-Go (USB OTG) charging, fast charging that provides 5 hours of talk time on just 10 minutes of charging, supports 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz 802.11ac Wi-Fi bands, and is compatible with Telefonica, T-Mobile, and Vodafone networks.

Gizchina News of the week

The Nubia My Prague has a 5.2-inch, Super AMOLED display with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080p (424ppi), an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 8MP front camera, 13MP back camera, AK4375 Hi-Fi audio, 16GB of memory storage, with a microSD card slot that provides up to an additional 128GB. Those who want the My Prague Elite model will find 3GB of low-power, double data rate (LPDDR3) RAM and 32GB of memory storage. Both will feature a 2,200mAh battery that provides 426 hours of standby and 27 hours of talk time.

The My Prague (original) and My Prague Elite will come in white/silver and white/gold colors and will cost 349 euros (My Prague) and 429 euros (My Prague Elite), respectively. Although, as the source below suggests, the Nubia My Prague resembles a world-famous smartphone in its design, the My Prague’s microSD expandable storage, 8MP front camera, 13MP back camera, Hi-Fi audio, Super AMOLED panel and octa-core processor, along with the personal nomenclature, provide reasons as to how different Nubia’s latest truly is.

    349 euros / 429 euros – thank you, but no, not for ZTE

    July 9, 2015

    you lost me at 615 and 2200 mAh…thanks but no…

      Just what I was about to say. SD615 and 2200mAh is crap.

    why are companies selling the 615 like it was a mid range soc, they should sell it as an entry level

    SD615 is still a mid flagship if we consider the growth of SD410 in smartphones in and around 6000 INR, it is time SD615 to be replaced by SD620, 2200 mAh is a very low and it needs at least 2500 mAh considering th heat dissipation and architecture of SD615

    Too small battery, thanks but no thanks. I love Prague as a city though (for me, the best City in Europe to live as a foreigner).

    As some of you know, Prague is capital city of Czech republic. Unfortunately this country uses LTE band 20 (800 MHz), which Nubia Prague doesn’t support. Therefore outside of Prague this phone will be connected via GPRS/EDGE. Wow, that’s cool!

    É caro pelo que ( may,minha Praga ) oferece, temos bom aparelhos com preços inferiores ex. elephone 8000, ecoo e4 e etc. vão ter que rever preços ou fazer promoções pra conquistar mercado

    Price shown is the RRP, not the real selling price. The price & model-name (“My Prague”) establish it as a high fashion model, like “iPhone”. It has nothing to do with final retail price, nor technical specs.

    Like iPhone, tech specs might be silly. Usability is what counts. Usually geeks & reviewers don’t understand usability; just tech specs. Soon to be discovered are: bezel thickness, OTA upgrades & frequency, USB-OTG, OIS quality, focus-follow, bright sun & low-light performance, BGPS & wifi performances, rapid battery charging, auto-focus, HDR, hardware-memory bench tests, etc.

      Totally agree.

      We have Nubia Z9 Mini and Max at home (Z9 Max for me, Z9 Mini for Katie). The Mini runs the SD615 and has a 2900mah battery – Katie gets almost 3 days out of it (where as I am lucky to get 2 from the Max), so I would expect the “My Prague” battery to easily exceed a days use.

      Also, in real-world terms, it does pretty much everything as well as devices with more powerful chipsets, so I don’t understand why people are knocking the SD615 – it actually does most things pretty well, unless you are continually running super intensive games.

      The WiFi on the plastic backed Z9 Mini is vastly better than the glass backed Z9 Max too. So, hopefully this device would have the same performance as the Z9 mini (do we know if it’s a metal or plastic shell?).

      Looks like a pretty good device to me.
