Bezel-less new ZTE Nubia Z9 handset pictured?

Bezel-less new ZTE Nubia Z9 handset pictured?
If these leaked photos are genuine, then it seems ZTE went on a vendetta against the screen bezel. We can't be 100% convinced, but the smartphone pictured sure looks like a ZTE Nubia phone, which stands for the Chinese manufacturer's premium line of handsets. They are distinguished by white color and a circular red home button. 

Sources close to the matter claim that this is the unannounced ZTE Nubia Z9. It is said this is a flagship device loaded with a Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, a 1080p display, and an OIS-enabled camera. The phone appears practically border-less at the sides, which gives it a very attractive look. You can still catch a faint glimpse of a bezel, of course, but it's practically not even there.

They need to leave space for cameras, microphones, and capacitive buttons.

Agree. Plus, there are two FAT bezels right there. Plus, how am I supposed to hold this!? Bezels are good if you use them right.

1. It's an obvious iPhone clone! 2. Those top and bottom bezels are huge! 3. How am I supposed to hold it with no bezel! 4. How am i supposed to put a case on it with no bezel! 5. Without the side bezel, the screen is more likely to break! 6. It's ugly as f***k! The bezels need to be proportionate! No side bezel needs slim top and bottom bezel!

Are you kidding me? You can't tell the bezel when the screen is off. It just might have the same bezels as a HTC One...

Any phone that has the bezel on top and sides and has round corners just looks primitive these days. All phones should look like the 5.5" Sharp Aquos Crystal X in 2015. Any aesthetic design that looks like an iPhone is crap... so boring, so 2007!

ZTE cant even deliver their current flagship - nubia z7 to other markets outside China after it was announced last July. I doubt, it can make nubia z9 available 6 months after announcement. Way to bad strategy, their flagship will be outdated the moment it reached local stores' shelves outside China.
