Announced yesterday, the Z7 is defined by its slick looks and bleeding edge hardware. Apart from the usual for a 2014 flagship -- a Snapdragon 801 chip, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP (OIS) camera, and a large battery (3000 mAh) -- the Z7 also makes use of an incredibly-detailed, 5.5-inch 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution (Quad HD) display, much alike to the LG G3 and Oppo Find 7.
What's new today on the Z7 front is that the Chinese press has managed to get their hands on the new Z7 and have been quick with posting high-profile information, such as benchmark scores. As a bonus, we also have the first few camera samples shot with the device's optically-stabilized rear snapper. Anyway, the Z7 scored a little over 34,000 points on AnTuTu's benchmark suite, which is actually significantly more than the G3's score of 30,634. That said, the G3 we tested does 'only' have 2GB of RAM.
The Nubia Z7 will cost the equivalent of $550 in its homeland of China, firmly positioning itself as a premium choice. International availability is under question, as ZTE has made previous Nubia models available to customers in the States through third parties, but not elsewhere.
