Neo have always been there in the background when JiaYu launch a new phone, or playing second fiddle to UMi. The N003 though could propel the brand on to the frontline and we can’t wait to see what they have planned.
Neo N003 specification
Development of the N003 seems to be slower than that of JiaYu’s and UMi’s phones, but according to the brand’s community forum, the N003 is set to launch in March! If this is the case they have done a great job of keeping spy photos from leaking, as we have yet to see any real photos of this phone. We do know the spec though and the N003 will launch with a 5-inch 1080 display, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and quad-core MT6589 processor running at 1.2Ghz.
Why we like the Neo N003
To be honest we don’t know if we do like the N003. It appears great on paper, but without seeing an image of the phone it’s been a little difficult to get too excited about it. That said though, with a launch planned for next month we don’t have long to wait.
The Nubia Z5 launched shortly after the Oppo Find 5 and features much of the same hardware. The phone is only available in China and through Nubia Experince stores, but if you have a chance to buy one take a close look!
Nubia Z5 Specifications
Nubia is actually ZTE’s premium brand for the Chinese market, and as the Z5 is the flagship phone, it shares a lot of the same features as the ZTE Grand S. The display is the same OGS 5-inch 1080 unit, the same Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU and 2GB RAM is in place, and the same 13 mega-pixel rear camera is used. From a design stand-point they are totally different, the Nubia offers a cast alloy white body, and features a red glowing home button. There is even a Titanium version available if you happen to be super wealthy.
Why we like the Nubia Z5
It’s a classy design and they are rare as hens teeth. The features set and hardware isn’t bad either, although it is more costly than the ZTE Grand S and doesn’t offer much in the way of additional function.
