Rumored ZTE Nubia W5 could be the first Windows Phone handset with a Snapdragon 801 inside
This could be the top-shelf model that Windows Phone needs to show that there are other manufacturers beside Nokia (whose Devices and Services division now belongs to Microsoft) willing to take a big gamble on the platform. Keep in mind though, that despite a picture allegedly showing off the model, ZTE has not officially confirmed that this device exists, or is even in the works
If the ZTE Nubia W5 does become reality, will ZTE offer it in the states? On Wednesday, ZTE USA CEO Lixin Cheng talked about ZTE having relationships with U.S. carriers that other Chinese manufacturers fail to have. But so far, these have been low-end models like the ZTE Concord II that is now available at T-Mobile.
And if you need to be reminded about the difference between the Snapdragon 801 and Snapdragon 800, let's refresh your memory. The 801 offers a faster CPU and GPU clock speed, supports eMMC 5.0, and allows you to be on two calls at the same time with Dual SIM, Dual Active. Lastly, the AB/AC variations have a faster LPDDR3 interface.
Thanks for the tip!
