ZTE Nubia Z11 renders and Nubia X8 pics land with launch event looming

CES this year didn’t bring us the big ZTE Nubia news we were hoping for, and rather than seeing the high-end Nubia Z11 launch, the best we got was a look at some pics of the phone’s front panel. When might we see this guy actually go official? It looks like the wait might not be too much longer, after all, and today we check out some new renders of the Z11, some pics of the rumored Nubia X8 phablet, and learn when both these smartphones could be gearing up to launch.

Those renders appear to be a good match for the front panel we already saw, while the back reveals the presence of a dual camera layout. From what we hear there, one is the phone’s 21MP main sensor while the other is a presumably lower-res component used for gathering depth data. Rumors still suggest the Z11 will run Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 SoC, while also getting a 5.2-inch quad HD panel and a full 4GB of RAM.

The Nubia X8, below, should still be in that same ballpark, keeping the Snapdragon 820 but graduating to a big 6.44-inch screen. Like the Z11, this model appears to also get a fingerprint scanner, and this report suggests the phone could be endowed with a 4500mAh battery. Earlier reports described something a little smaller but with an even larger battery, so we’re still not sure exactly what we might get.

As for that launch, ZTE’s been teasing a January 18 Nubia event, so don’t be surprised if we’re just one week away from seeing one or both of these handsets making their formal debut.
