A couple of months ago, ZTE announced the Nubia Z9 Max and Mini. Both handsets featured pretty decent specs but an otherwise rather conventional design. Now if you are looking for a phone that looks good on the outside and the inside, you might want to start considering the ZTE Nubia Z9 Elite and Classic.
Unlike the ZTE Max and Mini, the Elite and Classic versions of the handset will sport a bezel-less display which you can see in the image above. What this does is it allows the phone to sport a larger display without having to feature a bigger body to accommodate it. It also allows for some interesting ways to interact with the handset, such as swiping the edges of the frame to launch apps, adjust settings, and so on.
Users will also be able to set their own gesture-based shortcuts in addition to the ones ZTE has provided. In terms of specs, the Elite and Classic will feature a 5.2-inch 2.5D curved glass Full HD display. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for the Elite, and 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for the classic.
Both phones will feature a 16MP camera with OIS and a f/2.0 lens, an 8MP front-facing camera with an 80-degree wide-angle lens, a 2,900mAh battery, a Hi-Fi audio processor, and will come with the usual connectivity options such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC. No word on whether it will be launched stateside, but it is expected to go on sale 21st May for $564 for the Classic, and $644 for the Elite.
