The latest handset from Chinese smartphone maker ZTE is seriously pushing the bounds of tablet territory. The Nubia X6 features a massive 6.44-inch, 1080p display (344 pixels per inch) that eclipses just about everything we’ve seen thus far.
The panel will no doubt be the primary talking point of the handset but there’s plenty of other goodies in store as well. The X6 is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC alongside 3GB of RAM and can be configured with 32GB or 64GB of built-in flash storage.
A 4250mAh battery keeps the party going while a pair of 13-megapixel cameras – one on the front and another on the rear – both look solid. The rear camera features an f/2.0 lens, optical image stabilization, five lens arrangement and flash while the front-facing camera uses a BSI sensor, f/2.2 lens and a five lens arrangement with flash.
It’s good to see that manufacturers are finally starting to equip phones with worthwhile front-facing cameras even if they aren’t used all that often.
Elsewhere, the handset features NFC, three microphones, Bluetooth 4.0, a dual-SIM slot and dual-band Wi-Fi.
The Nubia X6 is up for pre-order as of writing in China with a price tag of $HK 5,010, or about $646 USD. That seems like a fair price based on the total package but don’t get your hopes up just yet. There’s been no mention yet if or when the handset will make its way to other markets although previous ZTE launches suggest it could eventually wind up on US shores.
