Nubia Z9 appears on Antutu revealing specifications

Nubia have confirmed they will launch the Nubia Z9 flagship on 26th March, and now Antutu has confirmed specifications for the new Chinese smartphone.

The Nubia Z9 hasn’t really managed to remain much of a secret. The phone, scheduled for release the 26th March, was spotted in leaked promotional images ahead of MWC, then had a very in-depth and personal hands on photos shoot during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

What those leaked photos showed us was an alloy and glass bodied phone, but what they didn’t tell us were the spec’s, thank goodness for Antutu.

Apparently ZTE have been running the Nubia Z9 on the popular benchmarking application which has recorded the specifications for at least one of the rumoured Z9 models (it is supposed 3 models will be released in total).

From the Antutu results we can see that ZTE have apparently gone for a 5.2-inch 1080 display for their flagship Nubia Z9. A 5.2-inch display isn’t as common on smartphones as 5.5-inch but it’s a great size that offers a much smaller form factor without sacrificing too much in the way of display size.

Antutu also says the Nubia Z9 will have a Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3GB RAM, 32GB memory, 16 mega-pixel main camera and 8 mega-pixel front. Android 5.0.2 Lollipop is the system out of the box, which will likely benefit from the Nubia ROM interface and features.

We will find out if these specifications are accurate in a few weeks time.

      You always say it’s expensive.

      Compared to Western brands with these specs, this is most likely not expensive at all.

        i know bro… and ur on point. I accept that.

        BUT , PPP (purchasing power parity) here has taken a nosedive … , i speak for ‘here’ . I know westerners wont have much of an issue with these prices , after the big 4-5 companies decided to charge crazy rates. My comments are NEVER aimed at/for the west.

          No to be fair, I think you have a point for us ‘westerners’ too… We’re certainly not made of money here in the UK these days and theres plenty of people like me on the look out for an absolute bargain all the time! (hence visting sites like this one on a regular basis…)

            all the time! (hence visting sites like this one on a regular basis…)”

    Those specs look pretty perfect. One important thing we’re missing is the battery though.

    I always loved Nubia design and price.
    The 5.2″ sounds interesting for people like me that don’t want 5.5″ screen.
    And finally someone who comes with at least 32GB for their flagship!!!
    Unfortunately they always come out with buggy Roms.

    Well balanced specs. Now see them failing to include basic specs like microsd.

      we have already seen that the device (supposed to be the Z9 Max) shown at MWC had MicroSD support

      Some specifications of the Z9 Max were revealed (not all) and none relating to the range topping Z9.
