Though Chinese manufacturer ZTE has yet to officially announce the Nubia X8, the flagship smartphone is expected to come with a frameless or bezel-free display and a whopping 4 GB RAM -- the second smartphone to do so since the Asus ZenFone 2.
Additional specifications include either a 5.5-inch or 6-inch display with a resolution of1440 x 2560pixels, 32 GB or 64 GB SSD, 4G/ LTE, Android Lollipop, and a MicroSD slot. The battery will supposedly be quite dense at 5120mAh; Other 5-inch smartphones typically have Li-Ion Polymer batteries of only 3000 mAh.
No information yet as to when ZTE will announce the new high-end model. The closest competitor to the supposed Nubia X8 is the current Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
