nubia-z7-leakThe folks over at ZTE are not going to sit down, take a break and fold their arms when it comes to new smartphones rolling out to the masses. In fact, their upcoming handheld would be called the ZTE Nubia Z7 (which has been teased before), where it will be the latest flagship model from the Chinese manufacturer, and as a flagship, it will need to deliver all of the different nuances that would continue to uphold the cutting edge capabilities that its predecessors carried proudly.

For instance, the ZTE Nubia Z7 might measure all of 8.5mm in terms of thickness, but that does not mean it is a slouch when it come to processing. No sir, you will find a 5.5” 1080p Full HD display that your eyes will appreciate, a Snapdragon 801 or the possibility of a more powerful 805 CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, an 8MP shooter at the back alongside a front-facing 5MP camera, dual SIM support, and built-in LTE connectivity.

Surely ZTE were motivated and inspired by what they saw with the HTC One (M8), considering the ZTE Nubia Z7 does borrow some design cues from the Taiwanese flagship smartphone. Initial estimates point to a rather hefty $560 price tag after conversion – unlocked, of course, which might make those on a budget to actually weigh this particular option carefully before making a commitment.
