Nubia X8 smartphone will allegedly carry 4K display and Snapdragon 823 SoC
According to Gizmochina, a total of four Nubia X8 smartphones are in the works. The supposed X8 PPT 6.4-inch phablet model will likely be the highlight of the family while the Nubia X8 Lifestyle model will carry the hexa-core Snapdragon 650 SoC with 3 GB RAM, 1080p display, and 16 GB eMMC. This particular model is expected to offer the longest battery life out of the X8 series.
Meanwhile, the Nubia X8 Standard Edition should be carrying the more powerful Snapdragon 820 SoC as found on the recent LG G5 flagship. Other hardware specifications include 3 GB RAM, 32 GB eMMC, and a 1080p display. The Nubia X8 High will have an even higher resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB eMMC.
Finally, the top tier model will be the Nubia X8 PPT with a supposed display resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, 6 GB RAM, and a Snapdragon 823 SoC. This particular SoC will be very similar to the Snapdragon 820, albeit clocked higher and will likely run warmer as a result.
While information on the Nubia X8 remains unconfirmed, the Nubia X8 was reportedly spotted in the wild as early as June of 2015.
