ZTE 5-inch 1080 Nubia Z5 to launch on Christmas Day?

Just a few hours ago we posted that the recent launch of the ZTE Nubia site could mean the new flagship 5-inch phone could be launching sooner rather than later, now we are hearing rumours that a Christmas day release is on the cards!

According to reports on Chinese tech sites and rumours on Sina Weibo, ZTE could be planning to launch their all new Nubia Z5 Android phone on December 25th. Not only would this date make the Z5 the perfect Chrsitmas gift for Android fans, but it will likely upset Oppo who aren’t expected to release the Find 5 for sale until January.

Details of the Nubia Z5 specifications remain unverfied but it looks as though the Nubia Z5 will luanch with a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 HD display, 2GB RAM, Qualcomm S4 quad-core CPU and a 13 mega-pixel rear camera all wrapped up in to a 7.6mm thin body.

It is also thought that the ZTE Nubia Z5 will come with a built in battery and will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

    Great piece of investigatve journalism.Its an interesting phone for sure especially considering the leaked photos and unknown final oppo design.
    ZTE is quite well thought of in the UK after their Orange oem re-badges and ROM baking community support. A lot surely depends on price though. I guess if they match googles n4 base price they’ll be onto a winner being a more known brand than oppo.

      I agree, San Francisco was a very popular phone here in the budget range. If they can price this one well and not as high as others then i can see them being a winner as well.

    Will this phone work in the U.S. and be 4G compatible? I have heard some awful stories of people not being able to use their international phones the the U.S. and I would hate to spend a bunch only to find out that there isn’t any service. Any advice?
