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.
