LG’s G3 smartphone has garnered a lot of attention due to its 2560x1440 (QHD) display. Although the display doesn’t quite impress in the real world as one would have hoped, the G3 is the current specs champion when it comes to flagship smartphones.
Chinese device maker LTE is looking to duplicate the specs of the G3 with its new Nubia Z7 flagship while at the same time offering it at a lower price. The Nubia Z7’s specs sound like a carbon copy of the G3 complete with a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 13MP rear camera (with optical image stabilization), and of course a 5.5” QHD display. ZTE also throws in a 5MP front-facing shooter, dual SIMs, 802.11ac Wi-Fi for good measure.
The Nubia Z7 will be priced at $550 off contract.
Two siblings will join the Nubia Z7: the Nubia Z7 Mini and the Nubia Z7 Max. The former comes with a 5” 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. The latter features a 5.5” 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and 2GB of RAM.
The Nubia Z7 Mini will feature an MSRP of $240 while the Nubia Z7 Max will be priced at $320.
