In addition to its recently unveiled U887 smartphone, ZTE appears to be working on another 5-inch handset in the form of the Nubia Z5.
Details on the Nubia Z5 were revealed on an official account of microblogging site Weibo -- China's version of Twitter -- subsequently revealing technical specifications and images of the phablet.
The leak confirms that the Nubia Z5 is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, accompanied by a full HD 5-inch display, a 13MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera and a 2,500mAh battery. It runs on Android Jelly Bean -- version 4.1.2.
ZTE has apparently managed to fit the device into a unibody frame that is 7.6mm thin. As for a price tag, it's rumored to retail for $400.
The Chinese manufacturer will reveal the quad-core-powered, 5-inch Grand S during CES in January, with the firm also said to be working on the Grand X Pro, as well as the world's first eight-core smartphone.

I only care about RELEVANT technology.Oh come one that was fun guys he is clearly trolling, everyone know that apple doesn't release any relevant technology the only relevant change that they made was to become a firm whose money comes from ripping off other technologies and take advantage that the people who made them never went the selfish way and make it exclusiveReply
Does a phone really need a quad core CPU ?Reply
kuz4156Does a phone really need a quad core CPU ?Depending on how much electricity each core draws, I think that, just like with computers, a dual core is certainly better than a single core, but not NEARLY as dramatic of a change as a switch from a single to a quad core. I have found that so long as you have at least 3 full cores in a computer, it runs much better. So to with a phone, depending on how much electricity each core draws, a dual core is absolutely necessary to be able to use a smart phone as both a data device and still be able to use the phone functionality of that same device. However, 1 more core would probably be enough to properly free up resources for antivirus/antimalware/pandora/gps/other background applications while doing something else, and still being able to use your phone as a phone. Quad core is fantastic, so long as it doesn't also result in my battery dying in 3 hours...Reply
Kinda reminds me of the HTC OneX/OneX+...Reply
Specs are solid. I hope to see reviews soon. If this comes with plain JB, it's definitely a winner.
The only thing that this has in common with the iPhone is that they're both made in China; otherwise, this is a lot better.
ok.. i ll just attach a handle to it... and ... voila .. i have a shovelReply
