What makes the ZTE Nubia Z9 so special when compared to other high-end offerings is its Full HD 5.2-inch borderless screen panel. Sadly, unlike Samsung and LG recent flagships, the phone doesn’t sport a Quad HD resolution, but thanks to its bezel-free design it’s stunning anyway.
Furthermore, the phone’s extremely slim bezels doesn’t only look good, but they are also highly functional. Similarly to the Galaxy S6 Edge they give their users access to variety of functions. For instance, you can adjust the brightness, unlock the phone and even switch to a single-hand mode by interacting with the edge of the display. All these is possible thanks to the ZTE’s innovative ‘Frame Interactive Technology’.
When it comes to specs, the Nubia Z9 comes equipped with features that any latest flagship wouldn’t be ashamed of, starting from its computing powers to end up with really nice optics.
The Nubia Z9 ia an LTE-capable phone is powered by Snapdragon 810 chipset combined with either 3GB or 4GB RAM, dependently on which variant you will choose. The Classic model offers 3GB RAM and 32GB of native storage, whereas the Elite version packs 4GB RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. The third option, the Exclusive version, is almost identical to the Elite model but it additionally includes a fingerprint scanner. All three variants run the ZTE’s customized version of the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop and are kept alive by a pretty generous 2,900 mAh battery.
On the optic side, the phone provides its users with a 16MP Sony-made IMX234 CMOS back camera sensor with OIS and f/2.0, the same that we could first see on the LG G4. The main camera is additionally supported by a definitely selfie-friendly 8MP front-facing snapper.
Debuting last month in its home market of China, the ZTE Nubia Z9 was sold out within just ten minutes, now the phone is expected to repeat this great success in the US. Priced at $564, $645 or $ $725, for the Classic, Elite and Exclusive variants respectively the handset will become available nationwide online and on selected retailers sometime in the third quarter of 2015. How do you think isn’t the Nubia Z9 pricing a bit too bold as for the brand that tries to enter the US market?
