Third interaction revolution is here as the ZTE Nubia Z9 is unveiled sans bezels
In the 1990's, Nokia's dialer/keyboard allowed smartphone users to interact with their handset. In 2007, the Apple iPhone allowed users to touch its screen to interact with the phone. Today, as it is unveiled by the manufacturer, the ZTE Nubia Z9 kicks off the "third interaction revolution" with FiT. This stands for Frame Interaction Technology and allows the user to swipe on the edges of the screen to turn on certain features. As we've mentioned before, ZTE will release APIs to allow developers to integrate the technology into their own Nubia Z9 apps. The extra real estate on the screen for FiT is available because the phone comes sans bezels.

The ZTE Nubia Z9 offers a 5.2-inch 2.5D curved glass display, featuring a 1080 x 1920 (FHD) resolution. The phone is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU with the Adreno 430 GPU handling graphics. 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM is inside along with 32GB or 64GB of native storage. The 16MP camera on the back of the phone comes with OIS and with an aperture of f/2.0. The latter should allow for quality pictures to be taken in low-light situations. An 80 degree wide angle 8MP front-facing camera can be used to take selfies and for video chats. The lights are kept on thanks to the 2900mAh battery. The phone supports dual band 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed with ZTE’s Nubia UI 3.0 running on top. 

The highest priced model of the ZTE Nubia Z9 features a fingerprint scanner, housed on the side of the phone. This is a first. Most biometric scanners are found on the front or the back of a handset. This version of the phone, which comes with 64GB of internal storage, is priced at the equivalent of $726 USD. The two units without the fingerprint scanner are available for the equivalent of $565 USD (32GB of storage) and $645 USD (64GB of storage).

The ZTE Nubia Z9 cannot be pre-ordered, but those in China can pre-register for the device at the ZTE website, or at Jingdong Mall. By pre-registering for the phone, no money changes hand and a unit is not reserved. What you will receive is a notification when the phone is available to be pre-ordered.


Thanks for the tip!
