A 6.44" ZTE phablet pictured for certification - possible Nubia X6 candidate

A 6.44
ZTE barely got the Nubia Z5S darling hot off the presses, and it is already baking other wonders, like the Nubia X6 phablet. The 6-incher was rumored to have a Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels) display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and an optically stabilized camera sensor on the back, with a six-lens module.

The Nubia X6 will be ready to make an impression by the end of the month, and in the meantime a ZTE phablet device appeared on the Chinese equivalent of the FCC, but with a more modest spec sheet, than what was speculated. There the phablet, dubbed ZTE NX601J, carries a 6.44" display, but with 1080p, not 1440p resolution.

The other specs are also toned down, compared to the rumors - the processor is listed as a 1.7 GHz quad-core CPU, the handset has 2 GB of RAM, and an 8 MP rear camera, complemented by a 5 MP front-facing shooter. The thing also has large 175.9 x 89 x 7.9 mm dimensions, and weighs the respectable 220 grams, so it sounds like a huge midrange phablet of sorts, while previous expectations on the X6 were for a decked-out flagship.

Alternatively, ZTE might be doing here what it did with the Nubia Z5, releasing both a premium, and a more affordable version. In any case, it will also be interesting to see what ZTE has done with the promised new flat, minimalistic overlay, on top of Android KitKat, whose notification center you see pictured in the slideshow below.

The design of the phone is ugly but the UI looks pretty good.

If it is Samsung, you'll say beautiful. If it's not, you'll say ugly.

Design looks like it came from a white box manufacturer. Very generic, nothing special.

Guess we'll have to see if it performs as good as the specs make it out to be.
