ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini render leaks, plays fast and loose with word “mini”
Remember the ZTE Nubia Z5? We’ll forgive you if you don’t, this being ZTE and all, but the phone was notable for a few reasons. For one, it was among the few full-HD devices to premiere in 2012, launching with a five-inch 1080p display. Now a render of a new “mini” version of the phone has leaked, and we can’t help but wonder if the word is starting to lose a bit of its meaning.
With a five-inch Nubia Z5, what would you expect from the Nubia Z5 Mini? A 4.3-inch screen? Maybe a compact 4-incher? Nope. The Z5 Mini is supposed to have a 4.7-inch 720p display.
We realize we need to keep things in perspective here – no one expects the iPad Mini to be the size of an iPhone, after all – but when we’re dealing with phones in specific, it just feels like a bit of a stretch to start calling a 4.7-inch handset “mini.” Now, if we’re talking about a theoretical device like a Galaxy Note II Mini, then sure – that might make sense. But this… pushing your luck here, ZTE.
The Nubia Z5 Mini should arrive running a Snapdragon 600, have 2GB of RAM, and feature an eight-megapixel main camera.
