ZTE Nubia 5S Announced, Snapdragon 800 For $330

After many rumors about two new Nubia phones hitting the web, Chinese phone maker ZTE threw the hat and went official with the Nubia 5S and Nubia 5S Mini. And the company's new flagship device is a mean machine, with a stunning set of specifications which include a 5-inch 1080p IGZO panel from Sharp.

A 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 runs the show along with 2 GB of RAM. The rear 13 MP camera shoots 4K video and slow-mo video at 120fps, all very impressive. And the front camera is a 5 MP unit. The pretty looking device sports LTE connectivity, runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and comes with a not-so-impressive 2,300 mAh battery. Perhaps the most exciting bit is its price, CNY 1,999 ($330) for the 16 GB version, but this one's for the 3G model in China. Want to enjoy LTE connectivity? You'll have to shell out CNY 3,499 ($570) for the same device with upgraded network connectivity.

Speaking of dimensions, the Nubia 5S is 7.6mm thick and weighs 126g only, making it one of the lightest 5-inch Full HD quad-core Smartphones in the world. ZTE also revealed that it will be taking pre-orders for the phone starting November 26th, but that's for the Chinese market only. US citizens will have to wait just a wee bit longer before they can play with the new Nubia flagship.
