As most of the smartphone world goes ga ga over the HTC One (HTC M8), one ought to remember that the world is a whole lot larger than just one launch region. In fact, folks over in China aren’t too bad off themselves, either, as ZTE has already made an announcement concerning their latest ZTE Nubia X6 phablet as well. Could it be a clever and yet subtle manner of deflecting some of the attention lavished on the new HTC One? Perhaps, or perhaps not, but that is not as important as checking out the hardware specifications right after the jump.
For starters, the ZTE Nubia X6 might seem to be more of a tablet than a phablet, as it sports a massive 6.44” touchscreen display at Full HD capability. Other than that, the back lies a 13MP shooter with LED flash and optical image stabilization, a 13MP front-facing camera for all of that high resolution selfies, a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, anywhere from 32GB to 64GB or 128 GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, dual SIM support, and a 4,250 mAh battery. It remains to be seen just which particular version of Android will the ZTE Nubia X6 run on in its 7.9mm thin glory. The asking price? Less than $500 (after conversion) for the most basic model.
