Nubia’s next device is promised to have some fancy tech, but it sounds like it will be coming at a very high price!
When Nubia started their phone business they wanted to be seen as a premium phone maker and set their prices high. That was with the launch of the Z5, but by the time the Z7 range came along the brand realised that a new pricing strategy was needed to keep competitive.
If you compare the Z7 features and price to the Z9 range you will see that Nubia are slowly raising their prices again, and it is going to continue with the release of the Nubia Z9 flagship this month.
Reports have suggested that the Z9 will feature a borderless design, metal body, and touch sensing gesture areas on either side. Hardware details seen at TENAA show 8GB RAM and a 3.5Ghz processor, and although we are 99% certain they are incorrect, we believe the specs are going to be very high.
With all that in mind pricing is going to be higher than expected, with online stores in China already listing the phone at 4299 Yuan ($695), with international resellers profit on top the price could be nearer $800.
Will this be the final price of the Nubia Z9, or is this just another method for the Nubia marketing dept to get the press talking about their new device? Find out after the launch coming soon.
