TENAA certification shows ZTE Nubia Z9 with 3.5GHz octa-core CPU and 8GB of RAM inside
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!
