Just yesterday we shared with you a rather interesting rumor when it comes to the upcoming ZTE Nubia Z9 smartphone. According to that rumor, Nubia Z9 will launch in December and it won’t have any bezel on the sides, which would make it extremely narrow and thus rather compact. We didn’t have any images at the time, but now we do, 2 new images showing an alleged Nubia Z9 smartphone have surfaced, one is located above the article and the other one down below. As you can see in those images, the only thing that is located on the sides of the screen is that metal frame which goes around the phone. To tell you the truth, when someone tells me that the phone doesn’t have any border on the sides I immediately think of only screen and nothing on the sides, not even the frame as it is the case here. A phone like that would be extremely easy to use and you’d press all kinds of stuff on the phone by accident I guess, so it’s kind of unrealistic to expect a phone like that at this time, but I just think of it every time I hear the words “no bezel”.
There is no way to confirm if these images are legit at this moment, but it’s definitely possible. We’ve been hearing rumors about ZTE making a phone with no bezel on the sides for quite some time now and this definitely fits the bill. ZTE Nubia Z7, Z9’s predecessor, was launched in December last year so this smartphone is expected to launch in December as yesterday’s rumors suggested. ZTE Nubia Z8 is nowhere to be found though, it seems kind of odd ZTE wants to skip over the Nubia Z8 branding and jump straight to the Z9, similar to what Oppo did with the N3 recently (the company skipped over the N2 branding). Either way we spin this, this phone actually seems interesting and I do believe ZTE would be able to sell tons of these if they actually release it next month. What are your thoughts on this?
