More ZTE Nubia Z9 photos leak; bezel-less look remains
Back in November, we showed you images of a bezel-free phone that sources told us was the ZTE Nubia Z9. Now, we have a couple of new photographs of the device, and lo and behold, it really does seem to be the Nubia Z9. While really not completely bezel-less, this phone has razor thin bezels that look nearly invisible in pictures.

The ZTE Nubia Z9 is expected to feature a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen, and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 805 under the hood. Toss in 3GB of RAM and a rear camera that offers OIS, and you have the makings of a drool-worthy flagship phone.

It should be pointed out that what you're looking at is a prototype. Apparently ZTE has been unable to get this phone into mass production at this point. Changes will have to be made before we see this model ready to ship. Will ZTE have to change the look of the Nubia Z9? That is something we will find out in due time.

Thanks for the tip!

This the rumored 2.5D glass front and all-metal back(unibody I guess).

We Chinese always call them 剁手兴, 兴 means ZTE, and 剁手 means cut your hands, all that means ZTE's smartphone (expecially the OS or UI) is just bulls**t to use.

+1. Another Chinese dude here. ZTE's phones typically have irritating factors that prevent them from being massively popular.
