We’re now hearing reports about this alleged successor of the Xperia Z3 indicating that it will feature a new display and an refreshed design.

A new leak from China has revealed the potential successor of the ZTE Nubia Z7 smartphone. Known as the Nubia Z9, the two images shown in the leak appear to have a very slim profile with barely distinguishable side bezels.

According to a new rumor, the HTC One M9 will be unveiled at next year’s MWC event which is scheduled to be held in March at Barcelona. This doesn’t come as a surprise considering that the One M8 last year was announced around the same time. The big takeaway from this rumor is the hardware this alleged flagship is expected to be packing.

The Geekbench listing also shows the handset to be featuring...
