ZTE Officially Launches Nubia Z5S, Nubia Z5S Mini

Previously we’ve heard of rumors that ZTE was going to launch a new mid-range Android smartphone. The company just made an official announcement regarding this and it’s not just one but two smartphones that are being launched. These are the Nubia Z5S and its smaller sibling the Nubia Z5S Mini. Both devices are expected to hit the Chinese market first before becoming available internationally.

First up is the ZTE Nubia Z5S which is the company’s latest flagship device. It sports a 5-inch IGZO display made by Sharp with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. One of its key features is that it supports 4K ultra-high definition video recording.

Under the hood is a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 that’s paired with 2 GB of RAM that assures of a smooth multi-tasking experience. The device runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and supports LTE connectivity. Perhaps one of the downsides to this device is its measly 2,300 mAh battery which when used with a quad-core processor will definitely run out of juice quickly. This device will sell for CNY 3,499 ($570) in the market with pre-orders starting this November 26.
