ZTE Nubia Z7

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.

They're better looking than the Android L buttons. The phone is too f_king big!

After 25, our hands stopped growing so why must our phones get bigger every year???

I like the design other than the buttons as well. I think the best implementation of buttons to date is on the LG G3, where you have onscreen buttons, but they are customizable.

Nope onscreen buttons take up too much screen space. And not everyone has small hands like you guys. I prefer a big phone. This is why I stuck with the note series that and the s-spen software. Stop saying this phone is just too big and just admit its too big for YOU.

Oh and the buttons are better looking than android L's. Knockoff PlayStation buttons IMO.

Seems fine. Whatever I can get exclusive as a sponsorship device I will take. Got a few already as sponsor devices. Let's see what happens.

From the OnePlusOne special edition.

Bezels don't seem to be that thin if you look at the right top corner or bottom left corner, It would be nice to have a photo with the screen on to check this.

Will have to wait for the phone to be revealed or another leak.

I like how the buttons at the bottom are in correct order, plus menu button is still there as it should be. Major props ZTE.
