A month ago, ZTE revealed two new Nubia smartphones, the Nubia Z9 Max and Z9 mini. However the true flagship Nubia Z9 remains unannounced, but this should change on May 6 in a ZTE event.
The Nubia Z9 hasn’t exactly been kept a secret though and showed up several times sporting a near-bezelless design and a metal frame. But now thre are some leaked informations spotted on TENAA.
The device, carrying a model number NX508J,should have a CPU clocked at a whopping 3.5GHz and RAM is quoted to be the unheard of 8GB.
The Nubia Z9 was previously said to be equipped with the Snapdragon 810, which comes with Cortex-A57 cores, clocked at 2GHz, and Cortex-A53 cores, clocked at 1.5GHz, in an octa-core big.LITTLE configuration. In the datasheets, available online, it’s not explicitly stated if Qualcomm’s chip supports the 8GB.
A few other discrepancies with the specs established so far come in the camera department, where an 8MP/8MP duo is quoted in the listing. Both the Z9 Max and Z9 mini come with a 16MP main camera, and the Nubia Z9 is unlikely to be a step back.
There will be a microSD slot in favor of 32GB of internal storage, as opposed to the 16GB of the other two models. Another thing to point out is that display size is listed as 5.15 inche and with FullHD resolution, and not QHD, as previously rumored.
