Reports claim that the next batch of ZTE Nubia devices will ditch the company's Nubia UI for good and make the switch to stock Android. There's a chance both the Axon and Nubia lines share the same "Stock UI" that has been reported.

ZTE kicked off the year on a high note, with the company releasing the new Blade V9 and V9 Vita at MWC. We're fans of the Blade V9, in particular, as it seems to offer a decent package at a not-quite-inconvenient price point. It would seem that ZTE has grand plans this year, as the company is apparently set to ship its Nubia devices with stock Android.

ZTE devices in the past have gotten a lot of stick for the company's skin. Devices in the company's audio-centric value-for-money Axon line usually carry a proprietary MiFavor UI skin, while the company's premium Nubia series features the aptly-named Nubia UI. All of that will change with the next batch of Nubia and Axon devices, however. There has been word that the next Axon device, the Axon 9, will ship with stock Android—it's apparently going to feature a skin known as "Stock UI", which is supposed to be as close as possible to stock Android. The Nubia line will follow suit, if these new reports are anything to go by.

ZTE usually produces fine pieces of hardware, and stock Android to go with that would make their devices a lot more attractive, especially to enthusiasts.
