The Chinese handset manufacturer's Nubia Z9, which made its debut on Wednesday at an event held in Beijing, is an impressive phone that may help ZTE ahead of the trend.
The ZTE Nubia Z9 offers a 5.2-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution display without any bezels along the sides. Of course, it is impossible to spot bezel around the display.
The flagship Nubia Z9 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, and a 2,900mAh battery inside. According to local media reports, the premium handset will be offered in several different variants. For instance, there's an Elite variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and an Exclusive version that comes with a fingerprint scanner.
On the camera front, it has a 16MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture lens and optical image stabilization. It's being reported that ZTE has completely redesigned the camera app on the Nubia Z9 and offers new many features that give users more control over the camera. At the front side, there is a Sony-made 8MP shooter with 80 degree lens.
Pricing starts at 3,499 Chinese Yuan (Rs. 35,992) for the Classic, ¥3,999 (Rs. 41,135) for the Elite, and ¥4,499 (Rs. 46,278) for the Exclusive. No details on the global release yet.
While its competitors may have been making steady inroads into the Indian market, ZTE hasn't found much popularity in the country of late. If the Chinese company is seeking success in India, they need to come up with something unique in order to rekindle their relationship with the local consumers.
