ZTE Announces its Bezelless Nubia Z9 Flagship

The wait for the bezelless phones is finally over as the new breed of cool-looking devices have started surfacing. The latest effort comes from ZTE and is titled the Nubia Z9.

Nubia Z9 actually comes with a near-bezelless front, with 0.8mm thick bezels. However, they create an optical illusion to blend with the screen so you won’t notice them. The metallic frame is actually responsive due to Nubia’s FIT (Frame Interactive Technology) goodness.

Sliding two fingers on either side of the touchscreen, for instance, turns off the display while squeeze the sides twice takes a screenshot. The display itself consists of a 5.2” 1080p 2.5D panel. The result of all this goodness is a phone which is unlike almost anything else in the market.

Underneath, you get a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 3 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. There is a duo of 16 and 8 megapixel Sony cameras on the back and front respectively. The main has a feature known as NeoVision 5.1 which results in much detailed pictures while the front has an 80-degree wide-angle lens.

Connectivity options include NFC, 4G LTE and MHL 3.0. Dolby 7.1 Sound is supported. Battery capacity is set at 2,900 mAh.

  • IF that does come around that price, 48,000.. . It surely will bang the S6Edge hard imho !!! :-D

    • Shahzaib Rehman

      Well this is what happens in Pakistan, you are never going to get it in 48,000 for at least 6 months of it’s release.

      • I am seeing a store recently do just that, and it really bites ;-)
        IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN :-D
        I know that store’s CEO personally and he is ready to ship in loss just to create his brand for the time being :-)
