Nubia Z20 is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855+ chipset, paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB UFS 3.0 storage. When it comes to optics, the phone has a triple camera setup with an optically stabilized 48MP Sony IMX586 primary camera, a 16MP ultrawide angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom.
