ZTE Nubia W5 with Windows Phone 8.1 revealed
Like we told you last year, ZTE is getting ready to re-enter the Windows Phone world in 2014. Following a few less than successful offerings in 2012, the Chinese company will release at least one Windows Phone this year.
And that may be called Nubia W5. Yes, it looks like ZTE will use its Nubia premium brand for its first Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone. So far, we’ve only seen Android-powered Nubia-branded wares, but that’s set to change.
The W5 will keep the Nubia line’s design, and it’s rumored to come with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, 4G LTE support, and a huge 4,500 mAh battery. To fit that one in, we’re wondering just how big the Nubia W5’s screen will have to be. Anyway, with such a battery capacity this can only be a phablet.
The current top of the line Lumia 930 from Nokia pales in comparison to the Nubia W5 when it comes to the chipset used, as well as the amount of RAM and internal storage. Nokia still has a higher-res camera, but with OIS the ZTE’s snapper won’t be bad either.
So it looks like this ZTE Nubia W5 may not just be that company’s highest-end Windows Phone ever, but a true flagship for Microsoft’s latest mobile operating system. That is, if this information pans out. Which brings us to the image you can see above – it may depict the actual looks of the Nubia W5, or it could be a mere concept. It’s impossible to tell at this point.
