Chinese ZTE probably isn't the most recognizable brand here in the West, but you should know that, nevertheless, the company is essentially tied for the 4th spot with companies like LG, Huawei, Sony and Lenovo as one of the biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world. While ZTE's primary business involves telecommunications equipment and the like (much alike Huawei, actually), the company has been steadily improving its smartphone line-up, especially when the high-end is concerned.
To achieve that, ZTE has created the Nubia brand of flagship devices, starting with the ZTE Nubia Z5. Almost a year later, Nubia's general manager, Ni Fei, has told Chinese CNMO that the next Nubia phone will be launched in late November/early December and come packing Qualcomm's most powerful chipset – the Snapdragon 800. No more details around the device have been provided, though it's safe to say that the rest of the internals will be top of the line.
In case this has pickled your interest in the increasingly competitive Chinese market, you should probably keep in mind that despite the suggested impressive specs, the next Nubia phone will enter an extremely competitive market. That's because the other renowned local manufacturers, like Xiaomi, Oppo and Meizu, have already unleashed their latest, extremely competitive flagships on the market.
