An upcoming smartphone from the Chinese device maker Nubia, dubbed as the Nubia NX606J, has passed through the certification process of the Chinese telecommunications regulator TENAA, and this could be the company's upcoming flagship, the Nubia Z18. This recent certification could mean that the handset will be sold soon in the East Asian country. The listing on the website of the telecommunications regulator provided details regarding the specifications of the device. According to TENAA, the handset will be available in variants that contain either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and there could also be models of the device that will include either 64GB or 128GB of internal flash storage. The regulator also mentioned that the Nubia NX606J will sport a 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 2160 by 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.
TENAA also noted that the handset will have a total of 3 cameras. The device will likely have a dual rear camera setup, which will reportedly be equipped with one 8-megapixel sensor and one 24-megapixel snapper, while the front-facing camera will sport an 8-megapixel shooter. The smartphone will include a 3,350mAh battery to keep its lights on, according to the regulator and the TENAA listing noted that the device will be available in two color variants, which are gold and black color options.
Earlier leaks have provided details about the design of the Nubia NX606J. Leaked schematics show that the device will have a notch above the display, which contains the handset's front-facing selfie shooter. The back panel of the device contains the fingerprint scanner and the dual rear camera setup that are placed near the upper left corner of the smartphone. The right side of the device contains both the volume rocker and the power button, while the SIM card slot can be found on the left side of the smartphone. Meanwhile, an AnTuTu benchmark listing shows that the Nubia NX606J will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset from the semiconductor firm Qualcomm. Moreover, the benchmark mentions that the device will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo pre-installed, although it is likely that Nubia's proprietary skin will run on top of Google's operating system. It is interesting to note that the model tested using the AnTuTu benchmark contains 32GB of internal flash storage.
