ZTE Nubia Z18 to launch on September 5, says offical teaser

After around three months of teasing the Nubia Z18, the handset is finally going official on the 5th of September, a Nubia teaser posted on Nubia’s official Weibo channel revealed today. The brand’s General Manager, Ni Fei, had previously revealed a 3.0 Full-Screen design for the flagship and we will soon see what that is all about. There have been some leaks in the past week that have shed light on that aspect of the phone. So, let’s see what we already know about the device.

The handset recently passed MIIT or Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and we know that it has a 5.99-inch display while dimensions are as follows – 148.58 × 72.54 × 8.55m. This makes the Nubia Z18 a great one-handed device.

Apart from the looks, we’re likely to see a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It is believed that the power source of the Nubia Z18 is a 3,350mAh battery that runs Android Oreo.

The most recent image seen of the Nubia Z18 shows a water-drop style notch on the smartphone which looks much more elegant than the rectangular cutouts we’re used to seeing these days. The Nubia Z18 will also continue the tradition of its predecessor and come with a borderless design and a screen-to-body ratio higher than 90 percent.

    This is not a ZTE phone. This is a Nubia phone. Why do you continuously insist on calling Nubia phones ZTE phones.
    By continuing to persist in this nonsense you continually undermine your credibility in the smartphone news sphere.
    Please go away and research the current state of affairs between ZTE and Nubia to see way it is completely wrong to still think of Nubia and ZTE as the same thing.

    Still have a softspot for my old ZTE Nubia Z9. It was such a futuristic phone ahead of its time. With its actual edge-to-edge screen with Frame Interactive Technology and IR blaster. The camera was superb as well (was disappointed by my P10 Plus, which had a dual lens Leica set-up in comparison; the new P20 Pro makes up for it though, was able to capture the Aurora Borealis from a plane the other night).

    Would be interested in a Z18 if it were any good and had the beforementioned F.I.T. . My P20 Pro slid across asphalt the other day, who0psie and is slightly scratched up (no cracks or dents; scratches only really visible when screen is off and reflecting light under certain angles). Gotta say though, never had a screen of a Chinese phone crack on me and I know tons of people with a Samsung or iPhone that have. I used to have a Jiayu G4S that I actually demonstratively would drop on the floor on purpose to show these Chinese phones don’t give a shit and can handle proper abuse.
