A number of Chinese smartphone manufacturers that make the headlines are sometimes relatively unknown, although, one Chinese company who have established themselves over time is ZTE. In the past, ZTE have released a number of handsets into the market, but their flagship range is the Nubia range. In 2014, this came in the form of the Nubia Z7 and more recently, the company unveiled this year's Nubia offerings in the form of the Nubia Z9 Max and the Nubia Z9 Mini.
