Suspected Nubia X8 spotted at TENAA, could launch alongside Z11

nubia x8 tenaa

We know that in just a few days (19th April) Nubia will have a launch in Beijing, but what will that launch be for? Well the Z11 Mini looks to be one phone but could the Nubia X8 also arrive too?

We’re tipping our hat to TENAA again this morning after the agency posted details of a phablet sized device that may well be the Nubia X8. Specs tell us the phablet has a 6-inch 1920 x 1080 display, while the images show us a near borderless design could have been implemented.

The all metal phone has a rear fingerprint canner, red ringed main camera, and dual LED flash, with a design that looks like many other 2016 phones we have seen so far (Meizu, Xiaomi, Lenovo is that you?).

Under the skin the phone gets a 1.8Ghz chipsets, possibly the Snapdragon 652, 4GB RAM + 64GB memory, 8 mega-pixel front camera, and 16 mega-pixel rear. The battery is a 4000mAh unit, which should be ok for a day of use, but in this day and age we would like to see a larger cell for such a big device.

We don’t know for sure if this Nubia Phablet will launch on the 19th but keep tuned for details.

    Interesting device, nicely spec’d – but their ROMs and software in general are not the best.

      I can not agree with you. tbh i had Z7 Max and Z5s and X6 and yes they lag a bit, but their ROM I think called Nubia UI is full of features.. Their camera rich with features.. pro fun and standard and all are so great.
      But their only problem/s are the weird lags and shutters AND the stupid Google services.. I had to work so hard to get Google in those mobiles 🙁

        It’s called MiFavor.

    The SoC could also be a P10 or SD820 Lite but it’s unclear how they will name these things since the 5 incher that went through TENAA is 8 cores @1.5GHz.

    For me the Nubia new sign looks a bit cartoonish… Then at 6″ FHD is something i I’ll not take not this day and age in the wakes of VR… And yet they are going to run a tad expensive as you know …

    I recently bought the Z9 mini from last year since it was on sale. I think it’s a great phone with a great cam (main reason I bought it), especially with the Resurrection Remix rom. Also I wanted a smaller size phone and at 5 inch this is perfect. 5’7″ and 5’5″ are great sizes for multimedia purposes but I found it unpractical in daily use. The SD615 chipset is not the fastest but still snappy. Would be great to see an upgrade of this phone with same screen size (not counting the Elite version with just an increase in RAM and some additional features). 6 inch is way too big… 🙁
