TENAA certification shows ZTE Nubia Z9 with 3.5GHz octa-core CPU and 8GB of RAM inside
The ZTE Nubia Z9 is expected to be unveiled on May 6th. Some features have leaked, such as the bezel-less screen expected on the device. As we detailed the other day, the Nubia Z9 will offer something that the company calls Fringe Interactive Technology (FiT). This will allow users to adjust the volume or brightness, switch active apps and more merely by sliding one or two fingers along one or both edges.

This morning, we have some interesting news out of China where the ZTE Nubia Z9 has been certified by TENAA. As you probably know by now, this is the agency that is China's version of the FCC. It usually is pretty accurate when it comes to specs, but the information that it is passing along for the Nubia Z9 has us thinking that either someone made a mistake, or else this handset is going to be the most powerful smartphone we've seen yet.

At 8.9mm thick and weighing 180 grams, the Nubia Z9 will be thicker and heavier than other recently released flagship handsets from competitors like Huawei. According to TENAA, the phone will carry a 5.15-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen. So far, so good. But here is where it gets crazy. TENAA says that the phone will feature a 3.5GHz octa-core CPU with a whopping 8GB of RAM inside. Most likely, these are typos and the processor will have a clock speed of 2.5GHz. As for the amount of RAM that is really on board, 3 or 4GB of RAM seems more likely than 8GB, wouldn't you say?

The phone offers dual SIM dual standby. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 16MP and 8MP respectively and a 3000mAh battery keeps the power on. Android 5.0 is pre-installed and there is support for GSM, CDMA, TD-SCDMA, TD-LTE, LTE FDD, WCDMA pipelines.

We will probably keep on receiving leaks about the Nubia Z9 right on up to the May 6th unveiling date. Stay tuned!

3.5 GHZ 8GB RAM??? Wha? Dis sounds too good to be truth. But if this was true, it would be perfect to run Windows 10 with The expanding mode (forgot the real name lulz) XD

They would be crazy to use the OS that no one wants... Windows 10. They maybe put android along with Ubuntu desktop in it.

If it was really 3.5 GHZ and 8GB RAM, I would definitely buy it without hesitate. But obviously it is impossible nowadays.

It's not impossible, just it would overheat

I would not. With 2015 technology, the battery life will be VERY POOR. But perhaps I would buy it in 2021. If it use Android Oreo.

If it would dual boot desktop Windows it would mame sense, having PC in your hand and you just need monitor, keyboard and mouse to make it fully functionable

Even at 2.5GHz there is no 8 cores SoC so it can't be just a 3 instead of 2 there unless someone managed something surprising with a new SoC.

It's impossible. Real phone will likely end up with 2.5GHz Snapdragon 810 and 4GB RAM.

3.5GHz octa + 8GB RAM? those spec really make my notebook nervous now -_-

dont be , even a 3.5Ghz octacore (Cortez A53) would be slower than a core i5 (dualcore) at 2Ghz..

yah but A57 might beat it . Already 7420 inside s6 scores about 25% on cpu than core i5 15W SKU.

It use 3.5GHz Snail CPU.

maybe they sum up clock on snapdragon 810 4core 1.5GHz + 4core 2GHz = 8core 3.5GHz weird, but its the only explanation about those 3.5GHz octacore -_-
