We’ve seen quite a few MT6752 powered phones come out of China, right from the JiaYu S3 to the Gionee Elife S7.
The NUU Z8, on the other hand, is a phone USA-bound. It comes with the same processor — the MT6752 — but boasts local USA availability. Besides that, the Z8 is also fully unlocked, which means you can use the device on any of the carriers that ply in the country.
The NUU Z8 has a 5.5-inch display with a full HD resolution, and along with that, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera and an 8 mega-pixel selfie snapper on the front.
“We are excited to offer our customers an unlocked phone that provides top quality specs, unmatched power and all the benefits of the Lollipop operating system, without forcing high prices or locked contracts on them,” said John Murtha, vice president of sales for NUU Mobile.
“The Z8 is our highest performing phone yet, and we are thrilled to deliver a fully-loaded smartphone that stays true to our commitment to freedom and flexibility.”
The device also supports dual SIM LTE, so if you tend to travel a lot (or one SIM just doesn’t cut it), the additional slot could be a handy addition.
It is priced on the higher side though, with a US$299 price tag. The NUU Z8 will be available via Amazon, Best Buy, Target, among others in the coming days.
