ZTE Nubia Z9's innovative Frame Interactive Technology showcased on video

ZTE Nubia Z9's innovative Frame Interactive Technology showcased on video
Announced last month as ZTE's most innovative smartphone to date, the Nubia Z9 is already available to buy in China, and will soon be released in the US.

Thanks to its near-borderless design, the Nubia Z9 is ready to partially change the way we interact with smartphones. The handset features what ZTE is calling Frame Interactive Technology, allowing users to command the device by interacting with its left and right edges.

ZTE is now showcasing the Z9 and its Frame Interactive Technology in a promo video, so everyone can take a look at what the new technology can do (from unlocking the screen to app switching, taking screenshots, or zooming in and out of photos and maps).

Of course, we'll have to test this new technology for ourselves to see if it's as user friendly as ZTE suggests it is. Until then, check out ZTE's video below.

The Nubia Z9 should be launched in the US in the third quarter of the year (thus as early as July), and we expect the handset to have prices starting at around $600 unlocked. Do you plan to get one?

Don't mind him, it looks like he is mad he won't get the phone. Keep us updated when you get it, i love how the phone but never had a Nubia before, that's why i am holding back from ditching my S6 Edge for it.

I thought about getting one. But super AMOLED display and tiny battery 2300... Is not a way to go today. Besides, it has problem with installing root and google play. But I confess, that sound quality at VIVO is better, because it's an audiophile smartphone, so it's kind of trade-off...

Meh, still has massive top and bottom bezels. But at least they're trying to change something, not just upgrading phone with additional GB RAM.

When Apple will copy this, their sales will hit 200 millions.

Apple is going to hit over 225 million this year. Up from 190 million from last year.

Meanwhile we keep wondering how that's even possible considering the alternatives. I guess they started strong and customers aren't willing to swittch away from that ecosystem once they're comitted. Similar to why windows is still around and always will be.

It looks great simulated. LOL!!! In theory it will be the buggiest piece of Android that is assembled. Concept is fantastic! Execution will take some time to perfect with updates.

I ve seen bunch of hands on and review videos of the Z9, and it is one of the snappiest flagships offered atm.

The same as Lumia McLaren 3D touch supposed to be, but in the end it was decided that it is gimmicky.
