Nubia Z18 spotted online, said to come with 90% screen-to-body ratio

Nubia CEO Ni Fei has claimed that the company's upcoming Nubia Z18 will have a full-screen more impressive than the 90.36% screen-to-body ratio on the Nubia Z17s. There's a problem with that, though: The Nubia Z17s has an 81.5% screen-to-body ratio.

Nubia's last-gen flagship, the Nubia Z17, was launched about a year ago. The company is set to release its successor soon, with the device being sighted on Chinese benchmark Master Lu. 

The company already released the Nubia Z18 Mini a few weeks ago, but that only serves as a precursor to the main dish, the Z18. Going by the Master Lu listing, the Z18 will be powered by a Snapdragon 845, and will feature a 1080x2160 display. According to Nubia CEO Ni Fei, the Z18 will have a higher screen-to-body ratio than the Nubia Z17s's supposed 90.36%. Of course, reputable sources have the Z17s listed with an 81.7% ratio, so we're not exactly sure what to believe here. 

The Z18 will come with up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Like its predecessor, it will likely ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. There's also a notch present, if schematics are to believed, albeit one that looks like the Essential PH-1's—a positive in our books. There were also reports a while ago that upcoming Nubia devices would feature stock Android. The Z18 Mini didn't, though, for what it's worth.

Do note that Nubia is no longer considered a subsidiary of ZTE, and as such isn't affected by the trade ban currently shackling the latter.
