Chinese companies seem to be pretty intent on capitalizing on the whole ‘end of the world’ craze that right now is focusing on a specific date: December 21. Not only will Baidu unveil its first ever smartphone on that day, but now we hear that ZTE will officially announce the Nubia Z5 on Friday too.
This comes from the official Nubia account on Sina Weibo, effectively China’s version of Twitter. The Nubia Z5 has been leaked a few times recently, and now it’s about to get official.
It will come with a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (APQ8064), a 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, dual speakers, unibody chassis, and a 2,500 mAh battery. It will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
The ZTE Nubia Z5 will be just 7.6 mm thin, claiming the title of the thinnest smartphone with a Full HD screen out there.
Previously rumored pricing information had it coming in at around $400, which is around $100 less than the similarly-specced Oppo Find 5. Isn’t competition great?
We don’t know yet whether the Nubia Z5 will be sold anywhere outside of China (like the aforementioned Find 5), but that information should come in a couple of days too. So stay tuned.
