The device has metal design and 5.5 inches display with 720-pixel resolution and 274 ppi pixel density which is quite common these days. Earlier ZTE had released the Nubia M2 and M2 Lite and the new addition sits more closer to the M2 Lite rather than the M2 in terms of performance. The Nubia M2 Play is a camera-centric smartphone has lower specs than the M2 but is similar to the M2 Lite model. The smartphone offers 32GB of internal storage with the option to expand further via a microSD card slot (up to 128GB).
The M2 Play features an all-metal body with a curved glass screen on the front. A 3.5mm audio jack is placed on the very top edge of the device, while the speaker grilles are seen at the very bottom edge of the handset along with a microUSB charging port sitting in the middle. But it is powered by a slightly less powerful Helio P10 processor.
In the camera department, Nubia M2 Play sports a 13-megapixel main Sony CMOS sensor at the back with f/2.2 aperture and hybrid autofocus.
