ZTE Nubia Z5 sports a 1920 by 1080 pixel display, gets compared to the competition
The more information is unveiled about the recently announced ZTE Nubia Z5, the more exciting the smartphone seems to get. After learning that the device will be impressively thin, even for a high-end Android handset, we now know the resolution of its 5-inch screen: 1080 by 1920 pixels or 440 pixels per inch of display real estate. That's exactly as many pixels you'll see on the panel of the HTC Droid DNA.  

The Z5 is the first smartphone in ZTE's new Nubia lineup, which will consist solely of high-end smartphones. It is powered by a quad-core processor and the camera on its back offers 13 megapixels of resolution. A pair of stereo speakers are visible on the device's bottom side.

Yet the high-res screen is definitely shaping up to be the most significant feature of the ZTE Nubia Z5. And to prove how great the panel is, the manufacturer has provided a visual comparison between its top-of-the line handset and a couple of other devices, namely the Samsung Galaxy S III and the iPhone 4S. 

The ZTE Nubia Z5 is scheduled to launch in mid-December for a price that has not been disclosed yet. Whether it will ever land on U.S. shores remains unclear, but we wouldn't mind checking it out first-hand.

1080p display seems to be the new normal for flagship phones.

I guess in ppi the norm is the more the merrier! But ZTE has really raised its game in smartphones and they can definitely compete with the likes of Sammy and Apple! These guys might just turn out to be the next HTC! I gotta get me one of these since I know they wont be priced as high as the competition
