Nubia N1 with 5000mAh battery just launched in China

It looks like ZTE has officially unveiled its affordable new smartphone, the Nubia N1. Envisioned as a competitor to models like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, but with more of a premium sheen, the $255 (CNY 1699) handset sports signature Nubia niceties such as a metal body and trim bezels. It comes with a 5.5-inch, 1080p-resolution screen and it's powered by an octa-core processor (reportedly, it's the MediaTek Helio P10) with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The dual-SIM connected device has 13MP front and rear cameras, and also features a fingerprint scanner. A 5000mAh battery runs the mains.

Other details about the Nubia N1 are scarce, but given that the comparably spec'd Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro and Meizu M3 Note can be had for less cash, we have our reservations about the smartphone's chances to become a breakthrough success. Nubia (a ZTE brand) probably won't be selling it outside of China and neighbouring countries, too.

Now this is what Samsung should be doing with their top tier smartphones! If they are willing to experiment, make two variants - thin one for those into vanity, and the other thicker just as long it has at least 6000mAh battery.

Why does some of my comments get deleted? I clearly remember writing about how Wh rating is more accurate compared to mAh for batteries, different phones use different voltage as output, so the current is not the single factor affecting the battery capacity, a 2.5V battery with 10000mAh actually has the same capacity as a 5V 5000mAh battery, this is so misleading.
