ZTE Nubia Z5 launching on December 26 after all
Although it was supposed to be launched yesterday, December 21, the ZTE Nubia Z5 will only be officially introduced in China on December 26. The info comes directly from ZTE, so it’s not just a rumor.
The Chinese company has already set up a website for the Nubia Z5. Unfortunately, at the moment there isn’t much to see there – just a countdown timer, and the promised launch date: 26.12.2012.
As already reported, the Nubia Z5 features a 5 inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixels, being among the world’s first 1080p handsets. Naturally, the rest of its features are on the high-end side, too, including Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, dual speakers, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,500 mAh battery. It’s not clear how much storage space the handset offers, and neither if it features MicroSD card slot.
The Z5 has a unibody case that’s only 7.6 mm thin – this making it the slimmest Full HD smartphone until now.
Unlocked, the Nubia Z5 should cost around $400. Of course, it remains to be seen if ZTE wants to sell it internationally – but, most probably, it will do that. After all, HTC’s Droid DNA / Butterfly and Oppo’s Find 5 need competition.
