Qualcomm Snapdragon 625-driven ZTE Nubia N3 spotted online
ZTE launched the Nubia N2 back in March 2017, so now the time is right for a successor. Although the Nubia N3 is not official yet, the images that recently surfaced on Weibo show what appears to be the final product, including a full retail box, a charger, and stock Android 8.0 Oreo firmware onboard, just as expected.
If we compared it with its predecessor, the ZTE Nubia N3 seems like a big step ahead. The 5.5-inch Nubia N2 only featured a MediaTek MT6750 processor, so the switch to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 is an inspired move by ZTE. However, keeping a micro USB port for charging in a 2018 mid-range handset does not sound too smart, unless you decide to sell it in a bulk package without a cable and a charger to (very slightly) lower the price.
In addition to the processor mentioned above and the ancient micro USB port, the ZTE Nubia N3 comes with a dual camera setup and a fingerprint reader on the back, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and a 5.99-inch display with 2,160 x 1,080 pixels and noticeable bezels above and below, although there is no physical Home button present. The battery remains extremely generous in the Nubia N2 and has a capacity of 5,000 mAh.
These being said, we just need to wait for the official launch of this new handset, which should take place by the end of the month.
