Last week, the ZTE Nubia Z11 front panel was spotted on the CES 2016 floor. These new renders show the same design, complete with a red circular home button and the company's Frame Interactive Technology (FIT) display. FIT is the technology that allows for a seemingly borderless design by refracting the light emitted by the display and was first implemented on the ZTE Nubia Z9. Despite this similarity, however, we can't be sure that we're looking at real renders, as a talented 3D designer could have started his imaginative work based on the previous leak.
On the other side, if these are genuine leaked renders, the ZTE Nubia Z11 is shaping up to be quite a looker. The metal frame that surrounds the handset slightly protrudes in the back to protect what appears to be a glass back panel. The elements on the back are a capacitive fingerprint sensor, a dual-LED flash, and a what appears to be a dual camera setup.
This wouldn't be the first time that ZTE employs a dual-camera arrangement on one of its smartphones. The ZTE Axon and the ZTE Axon Pro both come with two cameras on the back: a 13MP primary sensor and an additional 2MP component. Previous rumors claimed that the primary sensor on the ZTE Nubia Z11 will be a 21MP one.
According to previous leaks, the Nubia Z11 will get its processing power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset (2.2GHz quad-core Kyro CPU, Adreno 530 GPU) paired with 4GB of RAM. On the software side, the phone is expected to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow overlaid with NubiaUI on top.
According to the source that posted these leaked renders, the ZTE Nubia Z11 will be officially unveiled on January 18. If that turns out to be the case, we've got less than a week to go before ZTE unveils its new flagship smartphone. Anyone excited?
