Nubia NX508J, aka Nubia Z9 seen on TENAA with 3.5Ghz SoC and 8GB RAM


nubia z9

According to screenshots taken from the TENAA website in China, the flagship Nubia Z9 is going to be one hell of a powerful beast!

We are now used to seeing Android phones come with huge amounts of RAM and powerful processors. So far Asus have released the Zenfone 2 with 4GB RAM, Lenovo have the K80 with 4GB RAM and even Elephone are working on a 4GB RAM phone. Personally 4GB is more than enough RAM for myself, but if you want more the Nubia Z9 with 8GB RAM should be enough.

We are not so sure how genuine these screenshots are, but if they are accurate then the Nubia Z9 (flagship model) is going to really shock the mobile world when it is released in May.

nubia z9 specifications

nubia z9 specifications tenaa

According to the TENAA specifications, the Nubia Z9 will sport a 3.5Ghz processor to go with that 8GB RAM, and run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Other details from the TENNA listing include overall dimensions of 147.38 x 68.34 x 8.94mm, a 3000mAh battery, 180g weight and 8 mega-pixel front and 16 mega-pixel main camera.

Just what processor the Nubia Z9 is packing we have no idea, but we cannot wait to see if these claimed specifications are in fact true next month when the phone if finally released.

    It does seem like a typo though, nobody has a SoC with those kind of clocks.
    And it’s listed as 8 cores.

    Nice, another one to the list of useless shit that nearly nobody needs(actually no one but some will claim they do)

    UHD, 4G, curved edges and bezeless screens have a new friend to play with.

      4G? Really? Just because you don’t have doesn’t mean nobody needs it. I also don’t see the problem with curved edges. Angular smartphones are usually uncomfortable to hold.

      More likely you hate 4G because it’s not available where you are yet. Haven’t got it here in the UK where I am, but that doesn’t mean it’s not beneficial. I’m all for UHD screens, but thats probably because I like phones 6″+ and FHD starts losing it’s crispness at those sizes. Come to think of it, I disagree with everything you said as I like bezeless screens and curved edges….

      2 GB and 3 GB are actually usable.
      1 GB is more than enough for me.
      512 MB is usable in pure Android with only Viber, mail and similar.

              You’re just used to MacOSx or linux if that’s you’re flavor or you buy really cheap laptops and expect mac like performance. I have always loved windows besides windows vista and 8.1 was a bit of a drag with now start menu but aside from that i had no issues not hiccups no glitches nothing and i use it a wholeeee lot. Windows 10 is gearing up to be the best OS i have ever seen once all the tidbits get ironed out and i’m 100% sure its going to be a game changer which is something i haven’t thought since i saw windows Xp bak in the day, and btw ios and osx users are already madly in love with all of microsofts apps like the office 360 outlook and a whole slew of other microsoft apps that are already replacing the built in apple designed versions.This to me is a very smart move by Microsoft because windows 10 is admittedly moving towards the whole unified ecosystem world that mac has but for someone like me who has always enjoyed windows especially because of the software availability and the gaming to be honest, i am jsut alivatingat the thought of windows 10 and i have alrady tested and am testing windows 10 and so far boy oh boy get ready for a radical shift. So many things i love about it especially the Microsoft edge browser with Cortana integration. You really should give it an objective test run via virtual machine and you’ll see what im talking about. It will take some time but this will be a turning point for windows as we know it and microsoft is moving all its chips in that direction and its steadily making a wave under the guidance and leadership if Satya Nadella.

              Dont get me wrong i love linux, its probably the most stable operating system ive ever used. I have ubuntu on an older dell precision and its runs great, and i use it mainly as my homemade system monitor to run all of my media streaming through my home, but the lack of software is a major let down for me. I just received my Asus Zenbook UX501 from ebay yesterday and cant wait to test run windows 10 on this beast.

            • balcobomber25
              May 2, 2015

              lack of software?? There are tens of thousands of open sources programs that run on Linux. Then of course their is Wine which lets use virtually any program designed for Windows. For games Steam runs on Ubuntu and everyday the list of games supporting it is growing. I have yet to have a situation where I couldn’t do something on Linux.

            • hugo26
              May 2, 2015

              i meant lack of premium software not open source, i know there are a lot of great open source software adn in some situation for certain things i prefer open source software but for much of the work i do i need professional software that just inst available and i don’t like using virtual machines to run software because ive always had too many glitches and hiccups which cost me a lot of time and frustration. At the end of the day its personal preference and i just prefer windows and for the life of me i dont kno why people hated windows 8 so much. I mean i know it definitely wast the best thing they released but it was by no means any sort of deterrent from allowing me to do anything i did on windows seven and aside from Mozilla occasionally crashing, i cant recall any glitches with any software that Ive experienced. the start menu problem was easily solvable with 2 minutes of googling. as far as macs being more secure i have no idea what people are talking about, jsut install a good internet security suite with maybe a combo of malwarebytes. I have never ever had any of my laptops or desktops infected by any virus and i mean never so security has never been a problem, i slap Bitdefender total security on there and let sleeping dogs lie, nothing gets around it unless ur being targeted by a hacker. lol, im just a softy for windows thos and i cant wait for windows 10 to officially get rolled out.

            I usually switch between Linux Mint and Peppermint OS on my laptop. But for just browsing the internet or watching movies etc I have a Chromebook. For my gaming PC I use Ubuntu.

              I meant, mobile OS. In my laptop I use Ubuntu 14.04 to get job done and surf the web; to game I recently bought an entry desktop (GTX 750 Ti, more than enough for me), but a friend installed Windows 8.1 (not my cup of tea).

              I have great hopes placed in Ubuntu Touch, but there will probably be other great Linux OS’s in the coming years.

        WinRT. What kind of serious apps are you going to use on that ‘PC’.

        By the way, you could already the same with Android since miracast days. It didn’t exactly set the world in fire.

        • wat
          May 1, 2015

          Well clearly you haven’t even bothered to watch the videos and are just spewing your bias. It is nothing like Android where it simply upscales. It is more like Ubuntu where the user interface adapts completely. It’s not exactly for me, but what many people are too self absorbed to realise is that 90% of PC users only use a web browser and office. Not everyone is a PC gamer or engineer.

          • desponent
            May 1, 2015

            And you clearly don’t bother to search what WinRT means. And lol if you think people care whether it upscale or not.

            Ah yes, the ad hominem comes out, as expected. Lol if you think that just because of that it’ll sway people toward WinPhone then be ready for a rude awakening.

            There’s a reason why traditional PC market is in decline.

            • wat
              May 1, 2015

              I know exactly what Win RT is and I can’t understand why you are spewing such stupidity (there’s some ad hominem because you clearly don’t understand the term from your last post). I think it will sway some people towards Windows 10 phones unless Android or Ubuntu move faster to compete.

              The PC market is in decline in sales and not in usage – some of us work. If you did, then you’d know 1.5 bn+ people still use PCs.

Yes – I personally will not really benefit from it, no – that does not change the fact that 90% of people are not gamers or engineers. Can I not speak for people other than myself? You made a claim which is false, my correcting of your false statement does not change the fact that most people use only browser and office on their PCs. Sales and use scenario are not contradictory statements. Learn English before you reply please.

              May 1, 2015

              You’ve actually proven my point rather than defied it. Logical reasoning is beyond you it would appear. Yes – people only use a few programs which can run on a smartphone as well as on a PC (except possibly massive excel files, though I doubt it). Yes there are 1.5bn PC users in the world, 90% of which only use a few programs. So the answer to your question “what programs are you going to use on that ‘pc’?” is Chrome and office. Where have you failed to comprehend this?

            • desponent
              May 1, 2015

              And where have you failed to understand that the market is in decline not because whatever reason you think that would make this feature a blowout but because of form factor?

              I can assure you that people who choose to use their phone or tablet, that 90%, aren’t going to rush to buy a phone that they could connect to a monitor so they could browse on it. Absolutely not going to happen. You can quote me on this later.

              So we’re left with the 10%, the “serious” one. And they, and the company they work on, won’t even bate an eye to this since the custom programs that they’ve made for XP aren’t going to work on it. Nor will they shell out $700-800 for a phone, to do what a $300 PC is perfectly able to.

              This is like Surface and Win8 situation all over again, offering a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist.

            • wat
              May 1, 2015

              Prove your claim that the use of PCs is in decline, sales of PCs are not proof of usage. Please don’t make this blatantly fallacious mistake, please don’t be that stupid.

              Sorry but you’re making a straw man argument here – where did I say any % of people are going to use it? I said only 90% of people NEED the processing capabilities which it can cover. My point was only that the specifications outlined here would enable greater usage of this new feature. I can’t quote you on false made up arguments based on your inability to comprehend my comments.

              Wow, you are seriously deluded and clearly not part of the office working world and you have entirely missed the point. I didn’t say 10% of people who use Windows PCs are people who use only chrome and office. Weak XP programs will be able to be coded for WP too.

              Offering a solution noone wants you claim, yet the largest PC operating system vendor in the world with 1.5 billion users is working on it, the largest Linux vendor is working on it, many companies are working on strains of Android that do it and there are rumours the iPad Pro will feature something similar. I guess a random bigot like yourself on the internet has a far more valid opinion than all of the greatest tech companies in the world combined though. LOL.

              What the heck? What kind of statistic is ‘usage’? The fact is; there are more people buying phones each years than people buying PC. If you, can’t logically think the five W, then I have no more to say on this. It’s not worth it, believe what you want to believe.

              What specification? The ‘use your phone on monitor’ (with gimped app, on par with android) specification? Like I’ve been saying from the start, android have been able to do that (and no, people who aren’t using it for serious work won’t care if it’s upscaled or not) and it didn’t set the world in fire. You say that I have no proof for this, but neither you.

              Wow you seriously missed the point. I never said what you said I’m saying. And no, lots of companies still aren’t even bothering to migrate to Windows 7 because of compatibility and “if it ain’t break don’t fix it” mentality and making new softwares and deploying them could cost millions of dollars for some. They won’t even put WinRT into equation.

              The largest PC OS vendor that’s struggling to take the specific market from companies who aren’t beating their chest screaming for this feature. Yeah the largest consumer Linux vendor… that less than 1%… and probably not even 0.0001% for this space, I’m not sure why you think this is something amazing but okay.

              I’m not saying that at all. But again, not surprised with the straw man. It shows.

              May 1, 2015

              Wow. “Who cares what people actually use?” Wow. You’ve gone full retard. Yes, people buy a new smartphone every year for fashion reasons, not out of necessity. As PCs have become more reliable people are upgrading their desktops and laptops less and less. This does not mean they use them less. Clearly reality doesn’t matter to you though, and logical thinking evades you.

              Once again you are missing the point because you haven’t even bothered to educate yourself on the matter you are spewing this rubbish on. Yes – Android phones are as capable in terms of computing power but if they USER INTERFACE and thus the USER EXPERIENCE is horrific, as it is, then it doesn’t matter. An operating system which adapts to a desktop UI enhances productivity and user experience and is thus more appealing. Noone said “upscales” this is another straw man argument you have interjected because you are incompetent.

              WinRT doesn’t exist anymore. This is not WinRT we are discussing with the compiling of applications, but again you haven’t even bothered to pull your head out of your arse to educate yourself.

              What are you talking about now? You’re pretending Windows doesn’t own the workspace market? I didn’t say Linux are large, my point is that every single OS developer is working on it. You are just a random bigot on the internet who thinks his opinion is somehow greater than the combined tech companies in the world who are all working on it. Oh look, another straw man argument you are making because you have failed time and time again to make a logically coherent argument – I did not say this is amazing. You made that up. Get a grip.

      More likely you hate 4G because it’s not available where you are yet. Haven’t got it here in the UK where I am, but that doesn’t mean it’s not beneficial. I’m all for UHD screens, but thats probably because I like phones 6″+ and FHD starts losing it’s crispness at those sizes. Come to think of it, I disagree with everything you said as I like bezeless screens and curved edges….

      99% people don’t need 4GB of RAM in their phone.

      2 GB and 3 GB are actually usable.
      1 GB is more than enough for me.
      512 MB is usable in pure Android with only Viber, mail and similar.

      I still use 1GB in my Nexus 7 and it runs perfectly. The people who only use their phones for social media and light gaming (candy crush) will never need more than 2GB.

      You’re just used to MacOSx or linux if that’s you’re flavor or you buy really cheap laptops and expect mac like performance. I have always loved windows besides windows vista and 8.1 was a bit of a drag with now start menu but aside from that i had no issues not hiccups no glitches nothing and i use it a wholeeee lot. Windows 10 is gearing up to be the best OS i have ever seen once all the tidbits get ironed out and i’m 100% sure its going to be a game changer which is something i haven’t thought since i saw windows Xp bak in the day, and btw ios and osx users are already madly in love with all of microsofts apps like the office 360 outlook and a whole slew of other microsoft apps that are already replacing the built in apple designed versions.This to me is a very smart move by Microsoft because windows 10 is admittedly moving towards the whole unified ecosystem world that mac has but for someone like me who has always enjoyed windows especially because of the software availability and the gaming to be honest, i am jsut alivatingat the thought of windows 10 and i have alrady tested and am testing windows 10 and so far boy oh boy get ready for a radical shift. So many things i love about it especially the Microsoft edge browser with Cortana integration. You really should give it an objective test run via virtual machine and you’ll see what im talking about. It will take some time but this will be a turning point for windows as we know it and microsoft is moving all its chips in that direction and its steadily making a wave under the guidance and leadership if Satya Nadella.

      And where have you failed to understand that the market is in decline not because whatever reason you think that would make this feature a blowout but because of form factor?

      I can assure you that people who choose to use their phone or tablet, that 90%, aren’t going to rush to buy a phone that they could connect to a monitor so they could browse on it. Absolutely not going to happen. You can quote me on this later.

      So we’re left with the 10%, the “serious” one. And they, and the company they work on, won’t even bate an eye to this since the custom programs that they’ve made for XP aren’t going to work on it. Nor will they shell out $700-800 for a phone, to do what a $300 PC is perfectly able to.

      This is like Surface and Win8 situation all over again, offering a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist.

      Dont get me wrong i love linux, its probably the most stable operating system ive ever used. I have ubuntu on an older dell precision and its runs great, and i use it mainly as my homemade system monitor to run all of my media streaming through my home, but the lack of software is a major let down for me. I just received my Asus Zenbook UX501 from ebay yesterday and cant wait to test run windows 10 on this beast.

    • desponent

      What the heck? What kind of statistic is ‘usage’? The fact is; there are more people buying phones each years than people buying PC. If you, can’t logically think the five W, then I have no more to say on this. It’s not worth it, believe what you want to believe.

      What specification? The ‘use your phone on monitor’ (with gimped app, on par with android) specification? Like I’ve been saying from the start, android have been able to do that (and no, people who aren’t using it for serious work won’t care if it’s upscaled or not) and it didn’t set the world in fire. You say that I have no proof for this, but neither you.

      Wow you seriously missed the point. I never said what you said I’m saying. And no, lots of companies still aren’t even bothering to migrate to Windows 7 because of compatibility and “if it ain’t break don’t fix it” mentality and making new softwares and deploying them could cost millions of dollars for some. They won’t even put WinRT into equation.

      The largest PC OS vendor that’s struggling to take the specific market from companies who aren’t beating their chest screaming for this feature. Yeah the largest consumer Linux vendor… that less than 1%… and probably not even 0.0001% for this space, I’m not sure why you think this is something amazing but okay.

      I’m not saying that at all. But again, not surprised with the straw man. It shows.

      lack of software?? There are tens of thousands of open sources programs that run on Linux. Then of course their is Wine which lets use virtually any program designed for Windows. For games Steam runs on Ubuntu and everyday the list of games supporting it is growing. I have yet to have a situation where I couldn’t do something on Linux.

      i meant lack of premium software not open source, i know there are a lot of great open source software adn in some situation for certain things i prefer open source software but for much of the work i do i need professional software that just inst available and i don’t like using virtual machines to run software because ive always had too many glitches and hiccups which cost me a lot of time and frustration. At the end of the day its personal preference and i just prefer windows and for the life of me i dont kno why people hated windows 8 so much. I mean i know it definitely wast the best thing they released but it was by no means any sort of deterrent from allowing me to do anything i did on windows seven and aside from Mozilla occasionally crashing, i cant recall any glitches with any software that Ive experienced. the start menu problem was easily solvable with 2 minutes of googling. as far as macs being more secure i have no idea what people are talking about, jsut install a good internet security suite with maybe a combo of malwarebytes. I have never ever had any of my laptops or desktops infected by any virus and i mean never so security has never been a problem, i slap Bitdefender total security on there and let sleeping dogs lie, nothing gets around it unless ur being targeted by a hacker. lol, im just a softy for windows thos and i cant wait for windows 10 to officially get rolled out.

              May 3, 2015

              It would be good but if it clocks to 3.5GHz it would be a small core – that might perform well at high clocks. It would make sense from a market perspective too, something like the A53 but more efficient and that can be sold from low end to high end depending on numbers of cores and clocks.
              But there is no indication that Marvell might have a custom core,they just are the only player i can think of that would fit. They used to have their own core and they’ve been hurting in mobile so at some point they could stage a comeback.

    (even the best sensors don’t have great dynamic range)
    4. Front facing speakers (match or improve upon HTC or Motorola audio)
    5. AMOLED display
    6. A price that will shock as much as the OnePlus One did a year ago
