Two ZTE Nubia Z9 models pose for the camera

Two ZTE Nubia Z9 models pose for the camera
ZTE Nubia Z9 is shaping up as quite the promising handset, with flagship specs and premium design, but there might be another one in the making. According to the specs trail, the Z9 will sport a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920, for a pixel density of 424 ppi, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, and 3GB of RAM. Furthermore, it is revealed that the device in question will tout a 16-megapixel camera at the back (optical stabilization likely), and an 8-megapixel selfie snapper at the front. The unit will run on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

It turns out, however, that the Nubia Z9 outlined above may very well be the Nubia Z9 mini, if ZTE continues with the same strategy of releasing three flagship devices per cycle. The rationale here is simple – the previous generation Nubia Z7 had a display size of 5.5-inch, so unless the company has decided against big screens, it is possible that the 5.2-incher we're looking at actually ends up as the Z9 Mini. Furthermore, we should also point out that the Nubia Z7 was, confusingly, more impressive than the Z7 Max (1080p), owing to its 1440 x 2560 resolution Quad HD display. 

Again, unless ZTE has since decided against QHD panels, it seems like that more's to come from the company. In fact, both Nubia Z9 versions leaked out now, and one is clearly larger than the other, so ZTE might pull off the same trick like it did last year with the multiple Z7 variations. Take a peek.

I had the Z5S mini 2 years ago and it was one of the most advanced chinese phones I had tryied! The build on this phones are egual good like on the other popular brands if not better! Nubia software is the best too between the chinese skins for android too... The Z7 was the only one dual SIM phone with both cards LTE enabled too! Looking forward to this new smartphones:)

Yeah sure, take HTC One Max's back, add Galaxy S4's camera ring on it and call it by the name of: Huawei Ascend 7...!!! Go away troll, get a life + there is no way how the back is looking like & the side buttons gap it is much wider on the ZTE but you missed that... SMH and rest my case f**k off...

ZTE and Huawei really need to star getting these phones into the US. If they do indeed follow the path they are on with flashable WP10 (please make it so MS, nokia flagships are non existent now), id be in heaven swapping back and forth...
