While HTC has been dealing with leaks about their upcoming new device, ZTE has been throwing out teasers for its upcoming Nubia X6 smartphone. One thing these two OEMs have in common though is that they both seemed to have set a date for a special event coming up. We know that HTC is set to announce their new flagship device on March 25th, The All New One. In a weird but logical way it seems that ZTE might be determined to steal some of that limelight, as they have set March 25th for the date of their Nubia X6 announcement. We might see this as a little like riding on the coattails of HTC because let’s face it, their announcement date has been big news for more than a month now. However it’s not such a bad idea from ZTE as most people that are aware of the HTC announcement date will undoubtedly pay a little attention to what ZTE has to show off during the same day. People’s focus will already be set to new wireless mobile tech, so why not piggy back off that.
We do have to wonder about what ZTE will have to say during their announcement on March 25th. Will they show us the full specs of the device? Will we get to see much of it at all, and will they show off anything to go with it or just the phone? Although the dates are the same for both ZTE and their Taiwanese neighbor HTC surrounding new phone launches, HTC’s announcements are set on a more massive scale, while ZTE will only be making their announcement in Beijing, China. Since their device is likely going to be for the Chinese market only, it isn’t very likely that they will be trying to attract too much attention from those that will be watching HTC’s big announcement the same day. The Nubia X6 is said to support a wide variety of networks, including CDMA, GSM, and LTE. It’s also been teased to have a fairly long battery life, and come with an OIS camera sensor for excellent photos. It may have a 6-inch display and come packing a Snapdragon 801, and if some of these rumors turn out to be true it doesn’t sound like it’ll be a half bad device.
