ZTE looks set to become the latest manufacturer to join the five-inch screens party, after snaps and details of a hitherto unknown device in emerged on Chinese site Weibo.
Dubbed the Nubia Z5, ZTE’s effort is an Android-powered phablet that at first glance doesn’t look a mile off the sort of square design that has become a hallmark of HTC phones.
And with specs that include a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor, with 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel shooter and stereo speakers, it’s no slouch in the features department either.
Obviously, the highlight of the device is its five-inch display, which boasts a full 1080p HD resolution, making it by far the most advanced bit of kit ZTE has produced yet.
More impressive still, is that its unibody casing measures a wafer thin 7.6mm, and we must say that it looks the part too, with a clean, white exterior and curved edges.
The Z5 is most likely to be marketed against the Oppo 5, which is also a product of China that boasts an even thinner profile and an equally impressive feature set.
Whether it will make its way to Western markets remains to be seen. ZTE has previously stated it intends to develop more powerful devices that are able to compete with the top dogs. If the Z5 is one of them, colour us excited.
