The launch of the Nubia X6 is currently in full swing here in China, but full specifications of the phone have already been released.

As we discovered yesterday evening, the Nubia X6 has launched with a 6.44-inch 1920 x 1080 display rather than the 2K unit many rumours had us believe, but that’s fine as what we see we really like, especially dual SIM support!

Nubia phones are known for their great all round network support and the big news here is that the Nubia X6 is better still. Not phone does the phablet support TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, EVDO, CDMA, GSM, WCDMA and TD-SDCMA but it also boast dual SIM support and will be unlocked for use on any carrier! This is huge news for anyone who has been looking for a flagship dual SIM phone!

The dual SIM’s a are both micro SIMs and are located in a single SIM tray. This decision must have been made so that the Nubia engineers could squeeze everything in to the slim 7.9mm all alloy body!

Don’t worry about the thickness though as in the case of the X6 it does not translate to a tiny battery capacity, quite the opposite in fact as the Nubia X6 has a monstrous 4250mAh battery on board which should provide enough juice to keep the 2.5Ghz Snadpragon 801 (8974AC) processor and huge 6.44-inch display going all day.

Speaking of the processor, Nubia claim the X6 is capable of Antutu benchmarks of 38,005 points!

The display is a 1920 x 1080 OGS model with a pixel density of 344ppi with narrow-ish bezels on either side, which wrap around to an alloy rear which will come in a variety of colours including gold.

As with the current Nubia Z5S the Nubia X6 has impressive camera hardware too. The rear camera being a 13 mega-pixel unit with f2.0 aperture and OIS (optical image stabilisation) to keep camera shake to a minimum and 5 lens arrangement for higher quality photos.

The front camera also appears to be a 13 mega-pixel 5 lens unit with smaller f2.2 aperture.

    A 5-Inch version of that with exactly those specs (apart for the battery of course) would be a dream come true. 3200mah would be tops.

      nubia z5s?

      • Brooklyn701

        Is there any way to buy the Z5S outside of china? Is it dual SIM?

  • Rob

    Never considered a Nubia before but this has some seriously impressive specs (take note Oneplus), am tempted by this depending on international price of course.

  • Faux-News

    Huawei Mate 2 this year is getting lots of competition, unlike what Mate 1 faced last year.

  • wtf

    Hey Andi. It doesnt support dual sim !! Maybe will upgrade later but seems for the moment X6 doesnt support dual sim. Seems doesnt support 3G and 4G dual standby for the moment. Maybe this will be fixed with a firmware upgrade though.

    • Yes it has dual sim. See the photos from the launch above

      • Ray Quest

        NO MICRO SD ? then its bad

  • So it took a bit of digging, but it found some of the specs on the Nubia website.

    FD-LTE Bands: 3/7
    TD-LTE Bands: 38/39/40
    CDMA (why? no CDMA carrier on the planet will let you bring an unlocked phone)

    It also looks like the only one getting the faster AC processor and 3GB is the 128GB version. The 64GB version is the same in all the rest of the specs as the 32GB one.

    I really wish they had FD-LTE Band 1 support as well so the phone would be a multi-band Asia phone rather than just a HK/China phone. And I don’t understand why they bothered with CDMA at all when they could have added FD-LTE bands 1/4/17 and made it a real world phone.

    It’s also a bit disappointing that it’s launching with Android 4.3.
