For some time now, we’d been hearing about the Nubia Z7 and today, the company has finally announced their latest and greatest smartphone. As Chinese smartphones go, the new Nubia Z7 line – which replaces the Z5 lineup – are a great bunch of devices with some excellent specs. There are three devices in the new Z7 line, the Z7 Mini, the Z7 Max and the flagship Z7 itself. All of these devices will be launching in China soon and we’re sure that the Chinese buying public will enjoy having one more premium option to choose from.

Starting with the Z7 Mini, we’re looking at a device that features a 5-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 801 CPU with 2GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and a 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear-facing camera. Moving up to the Z7 Max, there’s a 5.5-inch Full HD display here along with the same sort of internals as the Z7 Mini. Both the Z7 Max and Mini support 4G LTE as well, allowing users to take advantage of the new network technology in China. In fact, all three new Nubia devices share the same internals, but the flagship Z7 has a much higher-resolution display at 2560 x 1440.

The Z7 has a 2560 x 1440 display delivering a PPI of 538 and the Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.5 Ghz here is backed up with 3GB of RAM and the 13-megapixel rear-facing camera sports OIS as well, which should give LG’s G3 a hard time in China. The Z7 Mini and Z7 Max are designed sllightly differently to the Z7 and will cost 1,500 Yuan and 2,000 Yuan, respectively. At the very top, the Z7 will cost 3,450 Yuan and all three devices are running Android 4.4.3 KitKat and Nubia UI 2.0 on top of that. Those looking for a premium device in China should look no further than the Nubia Z7 as it really does look pretty nice to our eyes. You can take a look at the whole lineup in the gallery below.
