ZTE is one of the largest China-based tech companies. This company has introduced quite a few interesting devices last year, their Axon and Nubia lineups certainly are interesting. Most of you are quite probably more familiar with ZTE’s Axon devices considering some of them have been sold overseas, while the company’s Nubia lineup has been available in China for the most par. Well, ZTE plans to change that this year, at least that’s what they said during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) back in January. We still don’t know when will that happen, but the nubia.com site is ready to go, so all we’re waiting at this point is more info from ZTE.
As we’re waiting for info regarding the international expansion of ZTE’s subsidiary, Nubia, it seems like the company is preparing to launch a new device, or even devices. The company has released a new teaser on Weibo (Chinese social network), and through that teaser image they basically scheduled a press event for March 29th. Now, this teaser popped up on Nubia’s page, which, of course, suggests that we’ll see new Nubia devices in a couple of days. So, what will Nubia announce? Well, judging by the latest leaked info, it is possible that Nubia is planning to release a new ‘Z’ line of devices. The company has released the Nubia Z9, Z9 Mini and Z9 Max back in March last year, so it seems like they’re going to launch the Nubia Z11 line this time around. The Nubia Z11 Mini has already popped up on TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC), and basically confirmed its existence, while a mysterious Snapdragon 820-powered ZTE handset surfaced on GFXBench quite recently as well.
Now, we didn’t see that many Nubia leaks recently, but judging what we know by now, the Nubia Z11 will quite probably sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core SoC, and will pack in 4GB of RAM. All of the Nubia Z11 devices will be made out of metal and glass, and you can expect fingerprint scanners to be included as well. The Nubia Z11 Max will be similar to the Z11 in terms of specs, while the Nubia Z11 Mini will be the company’s mid-range offering, even though it will probably ship with a premium design and solid spec sheet. These devices will be announced in China, but chances are we’ll see them launch globally later this year.
