ZTE Nubia Z9 Max, Z9 mini unveiled at $400 and $240
Today witnessed the unleashing of two flagship smartphones by multinational China Mainland company, ZTE. The ZTE Nubia Z9 Max and ZTE Nubia Z9 mini become the talk of the town after the two smartphones went official in Beijing today.
Talking specs, both smartphones are endowed with 1080p touchscreens even though the larger Nubia Z9 Max (154.8 x 76.6 x 7.9 mm) packs a 5.5-inch panel while the smaller, yet thicker Nubia Z9 mini (141.3 x 69.8 x 8.2 mm) comes with a 5 incher.
Under the hood, you’ll find a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 810 chipset and 3GB of RAM inside the phablet while the mini comes with a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 and 2GB of RAM — both processors are manufactured by California-based semiconductor company, Qualcomm.
In the camera department, there wasn’t much difference as both devices share a 16-megapixel shooter at the back and 8MP front-facing selfie unit. The two handsets run on Android 5.0 Lollipop OS with a home-brewed Nubia UU skin atop while a 2900mAh non-removable battery unit supplies current regardless of the size and engine difference on the devices.
While both products are scheduled to start selling in April, the ZTE Nubia Z9 Max will have a $400 price tag (CNY2,499) while the Nubia Z9 mini will cost you a nifty $240 (CNY1,499).
