ZTE unveiled today two new Android handsets at a special press event that took place in Beijing. The Nubia Z9 Mini and Nubia Z9 Max feature metal-frame designs with glass rear panels, but they are not identical twins. While the Mini has a 5-inch display and specs for buyers on a lower budget, the 5.5-inch Max comes with more powerful specs and a price to match.

These are the specs of the ZTE Nubia Z9 Mini and Nubia Z9 Max:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 - Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB - 3 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support for both
  • Display: 5-inch - 5.5-inch, both with 1080p resolution
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 16 MP rear (both, but only 1080p video recording for Mini and 4K for Max)
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, micro USB
  • Operating system: Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with Nubia UI 2.8
  • Battery: 2,900 mAh

The prices of these handsets on the Chinese market are about $240 USD for the Z9 Mini while the larger Z9 Max hits the $400 USD mark. It is not known yet if they will reach the US or yet, but we will get back to them as soon as we hear about it.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
