ZTE Z5 kicks off Nubia family of high-end smartphones: 5-inch powerhouse coming in December
ZTE, now proudly the world’s fourth-largest smartphone maker, has unveiled its new Nubia high-end smartphone lineup and the quad-core ZTE Z5 is the first smartphone to come out of there.

We don’t know whether the inspiration for the Nubia name comes from the word standing for “cloudy” in Latin or the ancient Egyptian meaning of “gold.”

The ZTE Z5 sounds like one of the more exciting devices to come in the near future. The Z5 will have a 5-inch display (with unknown resolution, but why not hope for 1080p), a quad-core processor, 13-megapixel camera and most curiously “Italian” design. Chances are it will run on Android. Most excitingly, it will hit the Chinese market in December while the rest of the world will get to see it in more detail at CES in January 2013.

The ZTE Z5 comes right after the company’s main rival at home, Huawei, introduced the similar Ascend D2 with a 5-inch screen and a 13-megapixel camera yesterday.

I hate to point this out but this spec war going on in China seems to not only be pointless to the market they are making it for but leaves them still looking like a big question mark to the rest of the world. I know China now has the world's largest mobile market but even still, thats just one market.

I feel that a lot of these new high-end spec devices from china tend to resemble htc as well. I don't know if you look very carefully at the details and differences, but just from a glace I automatically think HTC.

Another hit for HTC. I wonder how dependable are these chinese devices?
