Today May 6th was the day when the Chinese company ZTE decided to put an end to all the leaks and officially launch the Nubia Z9, a unique smartphone that was unveiled in Beijing. This phone will be a part from the Nubia family along side with the Nubia Z9 Max and Nubia Z9 Mini.
Even at first, TENAA said that this phone will bring 8 GB of RAM memory, for the moment we have to be pleased with just 3 and 4 GB RAM memory variants (LPDDR4) for the Nubia Z9. Among the specs of this phone we have a 5.2 inch Full HD display (424 ppi) covered with 2.5D Glass, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 2.900 mAh battery.
This phone packs a 16-megapixel rear Sony IMX234 camera with f/2.0 aperture, OIS, HDR, autofocus and a single-LED flash. We get a 8-megapixel front-facing camera for selfie that promises great captures.
ZTE Nubia Z9 offers dual-SIM support, HiFi audio technology and Nubia UI 3.0 custom interface based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Getting back to the 5.2 inch panel covered with 2.5D glass, you must know that this one is an edge-to-edge display, detail that makes it the 2nd phone in the world with such a feature along the Galaxy S6 Edge.
In order to use this edge-to-edge panel at its full ability, the guys from ZTE introduced Fit, or more precisely Frame Interactive Technology. By using such a technology we’ll be able to use the screen edges to do some tasks like opening the camera app, make a screenshot or to change the brightness level.
This device will be available in three variants: classic, elite and exclusive. The classic one will bring 3 GB RAM + 32 GB space of internal storage, while the Elite version will offer 4 GB RAM and 64 GB memory. On the other hand, the Exclusive Nubia Z9 will bring 4 GB RAM and a fingerprint scanner integrated in the home button.
Also, this one will quit using physical power and volume buttons in exchange for something more advanced like a touch enabled frame that will allow us to control the volume or to lock the phone using touch gestures. Unfortunately we don’t have pictures with this variant.
- Classic – $565
- Elite – 645$
- Exclusive – 725$
