After the launch of the Nubia Z9 Max and the Z9 Mini, ZTE is all set to launch a new member to the family. Dubbed the Nubia Z9 Max Elite, the phone was spotted while passing TENAA certification in China earlier today.
The Nubia Z9 Max Elite comes with a similar design language that was first seen with the Nubia Z9 siblings - Max and Mini. However the side profile of the device now features a Fingerprint Sensor. From the images leaked via TENAA it seems that ZTE has manipulated the Power Button and included a Fingerprint Sensor in its place.
Under the hood of the Nubia Z9 Max Elite is a 1.8GHz hexa core SoC which apparently seems like the Snapdragon 808. This coupled with a 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage.
On the front of the device is a 5.5" Full HD (1920x1080p) display along with an 8MP front camera. The rear dons the Nubia branding alongside the 16MP f/2.0 primary camera. So far it seems that ZTE has carried over the camera from the Nubia Z9 Max.
The certification listing further mentions that the handset runs on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 out of the box with the Nubia UI on top. The device is also quite slim at 8mm and weighs around 165gm. Furthermore the ZTE Nubia Z9 Max comes with USB Type C port, WiFi b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, A-GPS and 4G LTE connectivity support.
ZTE Nubia Z9 Max Elite comes with a 2900mAh battery under the hood - similar to the Z9 and Z9 Max. It is expected to launch soon in China in two color variants - gold and black.
