Tenaa again proves to be a hot bed for Chinese phone leaks, as we discover the carbon fibre ZTE M1001 phablet.
5.5+ inch phones are becoming the norm for most Chinese phone makers. Just this month we will see the 5.7-inch JiaYu G6 and iOcean X8 launched, however should either of these device not fit the bill there is another contender.
The ZTE M1001 measure in at 6-inches, but with narrow bezels, thin profile and overall compact (161.5 x 84 x 7.5mm) body, the phablet weighs just 171g.
Hardware is similar to the iOcean X8 and JiaYu G6, with 2GB RAM, octacore 1.7Ghz MT6592 processor, and dual SIM support and high-quality materials (carbon fibre in this case), but looses out on the camera front with just an 8 mega-pixel shooter on the rear and 5 mega-pixel front.
With a face mostly taken up with a 6-inch HD display, and a compact lightweight body, the ZTE M1001 has really peaked our interests! It’s just a shame the only model listed is a China Mobile TD-SCDMA 3G version!
Should ZTE launch a WCDMA ZTE M1001, would the premium design be enough to have you buy this over the competition?
