ZTE Nubia X6 certified in China, pictures and specs now out
ZTE has chosen to unveil its next Nubia-branded smartphone on March 25, which is the same day on which HTC will finally make the new One official (coincidence or not). So far the Chinese company itself has teased the Nubia X6 once or twice, and we’ve heard that it would be a phablet – maybe even a pretty big one.
That turns out to have been true, apparently. TENAA, which is the Chinese equivalent of the FCC, has just certified a new ZTE Nubia phone. And since we haven’t heard about ZTE launching any other Nubia-branded device in the near future, we’re assuming this is in fact the X6.
If so, these above are the first ever pictures of it, so feast your eyes upon them, will you? Alongside the images we also get a few specs for good measure. The Nubia X6 runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and should come with a positively huge 6.44-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera, a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, microSD card support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, TD-LTE, and TD-SCDMA support. This means we’re looking at a model destined for China Mobile, the world’s biggest carrier by number of subscribers.
That said, we fully expect there to be other versions of the Nubia X6, perhaps tailor made for the other two carriers in China. We may even see an unlocked variation, that could at some point in the future even be offered in the USA. But with such a big screen, the Nubia X6 is more of a tablet than a phablet, and as such is probably going to be nothing more than a niche device. Its dimensions are 175.9x89x7.9 mm, and it weighs 220 grams.
