Nubia Z5 unveiled in China with quad-core chip, 5-inch 1080p display and 13 MP Camera

Much like many Chinese smartphone brands these days, ZTE sub-brand Nubia had prematurely given away the main selling points of its Z5 ahead of its Beijing launch today, but there were still some surprises. According to Tech Kiddy, the ZTE Nubia Z5 is going to bring in some design inspiration from the HTC One series devices, The ZTE Nubia Z5 Android Smartphone with the 1080p HD display has been leaked by the PR manager of the company, and the pictures show one of the excellent looking devices of the recent times, with a white body and a large display. We have been hearing the rumors about the Nubia Z5 and this has kept adding to make a list of the specs that the device can have.

The ZTE Nubia Z5 is going to bring in some design inspiration from the HTC One series devices, and the processor included in the phone would be Android 4.1 (Jellybean), Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5 GHz quad-core processor assisted with 2GB of RAM, and as we already know, the camera would be a big 13 megapixel lens. There are dual speakers on the rear side near the bottom, while the large earpiece grill keeps itself on the front top side. The phone is said to be announced and be available in the Chinese market by the end of this month, or even sooner.

It is Said To Be More Thicker then HTC Butterfly at About 7.6 mm Thickness. Having a large screen doesn’t mean the phone has to be large, as ZTE has kept the thickness of the Nubia Z5 at just 7.6 mm, and this could be an advantage where users wanted a larger but lighter device in their hands, irrespective of the maker. 

The phone's 2.67mm-thick screen bezel and 68.8mm body width also puts the HTC Butterfly and the Samsung Galaxy S III to shame; and with the help of the rounded sides on the aluminum frame and the non-removable plastic back cover, the Z5 felt firm and comfortable in the hands.

The camera of course is one of the factors where the other 1080p phones should see a big competition from the Nubia Z5, as the 13 megapixel lens should really capture some of the best pictures and something that a 1080p display should show off. Along with 13Mp F2.2 main camera (with five-element optics by Konica Minolta, plus separate touch focus and touch exposure in the app) and a two-megapixel front-facing camera. For multimedia consumption, the Z5 supports WiFi Display and MHL output should you wish to beam content to a larger screen; whereas on the audio side you are spoiled with either Yamaha or Dolby Digital Plus.

ZTE could make it official sometime during the next week, and the phone is supposed to have a 5-inch capacitive touch screen with a 1080p HD display, include the 1.5 GHz quad-core APQ8064 QualcommSnapdragon S4 Pro processor, the pixel density of 440 PPI, a 2GB of RAM for the speed support.

As Nubia's first phone, there's no information regarding its international availability just yet, but here's the good news for now: courtesy of Qualcomm's modem module, the Chinese edition of the Z5 will support both CDMA2000 (800MHz, for China Telecom) and WCDMA (2100MHz, for China Unicom); and when Nubia eventually launches it internationally, it'll also support LTE as well. The ultimate question is: how much? Well, at either the online store or any of the upcoming experience stores, it'll be ¥3,456 (about $550, which isn't far from the 32GB Oppo Find 5) for the regular aluminum version starting in January; and for those who have some extra yuan to spare, there will also be a titanium edition priced at a staggering ¥7,890 (about $1,260; and did you see what they did with the numbers?).
