ZTE’s Nubia brand are rumoured to be launching an updated version of the Nubia Z5 with Snapdragon 800 processor, but leaked pricing doesn’t seem very competitive!
Last year the Nubia Z5 was all over the news for being a possible Oppo Find 5 killer, we quickly found out that wasn’t to be and Nubia fell silent for a few months eventually hitting headlines again with a U.S launch.
While the current Z5 is new to U.S shores, Chinese customs will soon (19th of November) be able to get their hands on the Z5S which has been updated to the latest quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset from Qualcomm.

Leaked pricing claims the Nubia Z5S will cost 3456 Yuan ($567) for the 32GB model with 2GB RAM and support for TD-LTE and FDD-LTE 4G networks. Compared to what we have seen from Vivo and Gionee though this price sounds way too high!
Both Vivo and Gionee will launch next-gen Snappy 800 phones next month but are rumoured to have 2K displays, 3GB RAM as well as 4G support for similar prices! If you had the choice which phone would you choose!
