New ZTE Nubia smartphone launching in November with Snapdragon 800 SoC

ZTE Nubia refresh

The ZTE Nubia Z5 which could possibly make its way to the U.S. soon, will be getting a refresh in a couple of months. According to the GM of Nubia, Ni Fei, a successor to the Nubia Z5 will be launching in November with a substantially upgraded hardware.

For now, he only revealed that it would sport the Snapdragon 800 SoC while the rest of the hardware still remains a mystery. But it’s safe to assume that a smartphone with Snapdragon 800 on board will also pack other top notch specs. This new device apparently will launch in the November/December time frame, with China getting first dibs of course. But global customers should be able to purchase the smartphone through online retailers.

We’re expecting a 5 inch+ 1080p display, a 13MP camera, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. ZTE will have a very tough market to compete in with the presence of Huawei, Oppo, Meizu as well as Xiaomi. Pricing is obviously going to be very crucial as is always the case with Chinese smartphones. We expect the new ZTE Nubia smartphone to cost somewhere under $400.
