ZTE Nubia Z5 flagship leaks again, 5" full frontal this time

ZTE Nubia Z5 flagship leaks again, 5" full frontal this time
The ZTE Nubia Z5 leaked a few times already in all of its 440ppi 5" screen glory, but we only saw the back and sides of the thin and powerful flagship which kickstarts a whole high-end Nubia line for ZTE.

Now we get full frontal of the Z5, and some more tidbits about the "Italian design" of the device. It is apparently a unibody chassis, meaning that you are likely stuck with the internal memory and battery capacity ZTE decided to place in there.

As a reminder, like any self-respecting Full HD display phone these days, the ZTE Nubia Z5 will feature a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2 GB of RAM, and a 13 MP camera on the back, just like the rumored LG E940, the Sony Xperia Odin/Yuga and the Oppo Find 5 handset. In fact, only the Droid DNA strays from that pack with an 8 MP shooter on the rear.

The ZTE Nubia Z5 is said to be just 7.6mm thin, and will apparently have dual speakers on the back. The phone is likely to be released next week in China, so we are waiting with bated breath on the value-for-money ratio, which ZTE is pretty good at.

See all pictures of the Nubia Z5 leaked so far in the slideshow below, and tell us what you think about the molded design of this performer, and the apparent UI overlay by ZTE, except the fact that the chassis build reeks of HTC.

If only the iPhone had that screen, core, and cameras. iOS would go great with that. Besides the outer shell of the phone, I think apple needs to concentrate more on hardware.

Every ZTE phone released in the USA has been garbage. Not sure if this would be any different. Would I spend my money on a ZTE phone. No.

Dual speakers is a new welcome edition,hopefully all 2013 handsets will have this coupled with the 1080p screens.

ZTE drew a lot of design inspiration from other manufacturers. looks like an HTC handset to me.

You're dumb, all the 2013 flagships are coming with S4 pro. How is that exciting ?? More diversity !!

If that's so boring why don't you invent something 5x faster and smaller than it? I'm sure THAT won't be boring.
