It seems that the smartphone market is about to be jolted by the entry of a new advanced smartphone courtesy of ZTE. The company has officially announced today, the release of the Nubia Z5 Android smartphone. Said handset is a premium smartphone which could very well compete against the rumored Galaxy S4 and other high-end devices such as the HTC Butterfly or Droid DNA.
Specs-wise, it seems that ZTE is not leaving anything out and has put in the best features of an advanced smartphone to the Nubia Z5. For starters, this handset features a 5-inch IPS display with 1920×1080 pixels resolution. The rest of its specs are as follow:
- 1.5 GHz Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (APQ8064) processor
- 2GB of RAM
- Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean
- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
- NFC, Bluetooth 4.0
- 13MP rear camera with Flash
- 2MP front-facing camera
- 32GB internal memory
- 3000 mAh battery
Seriously, given those specs, what more can you ask for? And if weigh and form factor are among your major concern when buying a smartphone, how about if we tell you that the ZTE Nubia Z5 weighs only 126 grams and measures 138×69.2×7.6 in dimension? And with a 3000 mAh battery, it’s pretty obvious that this device can last you long enough without draining the handset’s power supply at once.
Of course, your next concern will be its price. Unfortunately, the Nubia Z5 doesn’t come in cheap. It will set you back for around $555. But that is if this handset is going international. Reports say that it will be released in China by January 2013. Two color options will be available, namely black and white. There’s also a rumor that a titanium version of the handset will be released but at a premium price of around $1265.
So, anybody interested in getting the ZTE Nubia Z5? Do you think ZTE is going to release this handset internationally?
