ZTE Nubia Z7 gets official, but don’t count on it coming to your neighborhood


Last week we got a glimpse of a device rumored to be ZTE’s Nubia Z7 and while it doesn’t look exactly like the handset that ZTE revealed today, there are definitely some similarities. So now that it’s here, what does the Chinese manufacturer’s new flagship smartphone bring to the table? How about a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.4.

The Nubia Z7 carries a price tag of ¥ 3,456.00, which breaks down to about $557. Reasonable hardware and an affordable premium certainly make ZTE’s new smartphone appealing, however it’s unknown if this handset will ever officially be available outside of Asia. In the past, ZTE has released a handful of devices in the US, so there’s a slight chance that the Nubia Z7 could make a stateside debut, but most likely under a different moniker wrapped up in carrier branding.
