ZTE’s Nubia brand have confirmed that they will be launching the Nubia Z7 and possibly a Z8 at a Beijing based event.

After a slow start with only a few phone launches, Nubia have really come out on top with the refreshed range of Z5’s packing Snapdragon 800 chips, the giant X6 with an 801 and now a new phone.

It has been confirmed by Nubia’s teasers that the brand intend to launch the Nubia Z7 in Beijing on 8th July, but all we know for sure is that the phone will feature a rather large LED flash and rear camera sensor.

Chances are the Nubia Z7 will be a smaller version of the current X6, with 4G LTE, high-resolution display and of course 4G LTE thanks to the inclusion of a Snapdragon processor. The processor itself has been rumoured to be the might Snapdragon 805, could the Nubia Z7 be the first to get the new chip?

Rumours are also circulating that another phone, possibly the Nubia Z8 could be launched during the event, but as yet these are unconfirmed.

    S5 with 2K res in Korea already has 805

      a 2K screen would be great, but Nubia hasn’t shown the slightest inclination to care about that so far. the X6 (with 6.4″ screen) is on 1080p.

        Not the point I was making. The article wrongly claims that this may be the firs Snapdragon 805 smartphone but the Samsung Galaxy S5, SPECIFICALLY the Korean model with a 2k scree, already is for sale with the Snapdragon 805.

    Hoping Z7 will be dual SIM just like X6..that should be a great plus point for this phone and if this is coupled with a really great Camera with some advanced LED flash..supported by a 4000 mAh. Batt..Z7 will be a sure shot winner.

      Interestingly enough, I’m actually thinking that a Tri-SIM phone would be the ideal number of SIMs for the new generation of Octo-band LTE devices.

      I could really see a use for a HK/CN/US phone that had all three SIMs in simultaneously and all the right LTE frequencies for all those markets. Alternately, you could have it as a CN/SG/KR phone, a CN/HK/SG, or any other permutation of CN/HK/SG/KR/US.

      The X6 (with dual SIM) is optimized as a CN/HK phone, with the right frequencies for CN/HK or CN/SG, not for the US or KR though.
