If the rumors are any indication, ZTE's upcoming Nubia Z7 handset will not only pack a wallop, but the Android flagship smartphone will also be a sleek piece of kit. Teasers of the device from last month indicated a metallic construction, which has been further reinforced by live photos of the device.
The images, which were posted on China's Sina Weibo, showcase thin bezels and a metallic chassis. According to the rumors, the Nubia Z7 is said to feature a 5.5-inch full-HD screen, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 or 805 CPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, 8 MP camera, 2 MP front camera, LTE (TD-LTE ) connectivity and dual-SIM card slots. The device is also said to be sleek, with an overall thickness of just 8.5mm.
It has been alleged that ZTE will announce the device sometime this week, following a successful network license from TENAA (which is China's equivalent of the FCC). As for pricing, the Nubia Z7 is said to cost somewhere in the vicinity of $560. Considering the fact that ZTE does not have a strong presence outside of China, it is highly unlikely this device would be available outside the country. Nevertheless, it looks like the Nubia Z7 will be a viable alternative over similar offerings from the likes of Xiaomi, Meizu, Lenovo and Huawei.
