    In case you haven’t checked your calendar… apps lately, April 19 came and went without so much as a hint regarding the rumored ZTE Nubia X8 and X8 Max announcements. The Nubia Z11 and Z11 Max are themselves oddly kept on the sidelines, with just the diminutive derivation unveiled, plus two new low-key Blade-series mid-rangers. But perhaps the X8 "delays" are for the best, allowing ZTE to polish and perfect at least three 6.4-inch models, including one that sounds straight out of a sci-fi movie. Yes, we’re hearing whispers of a Nubia X8 or X8 Max “Ultimate” configuration now, ...

    It’s not exactly customary for a diminutive derivation of a new flagship phone to go official before the “full-sized” model does, and several major Android OEMs have altogether renounced mini-hero devices. Not ZTE, though, or rather the Chinese company’s Nubia sub-brand, which proves big things can indeed come in small packages today, as promised. The Z11 mini foreshadows both the standard Z11 and Z11 max, unfortunately rehashing a number of Z9 mini specifications it couldn’t possibly upgrade at its sub-$250 price point. Nor can you justifiably show discontent over upper ...

    While ZTE’s precise product release plans for the next few months remain decidedly under wraps, we know for sure at least a couple Nubia-branded Android phones are slated to go official in Beijing in exactly five days. One of these is likely a mini-flagship, which made us assume sequels for last year’s standard and diminutive Z9 were coming. But it’s also possible long overdue follow-ups for the 2014-launched Nubia X6 are in the works, with 5.5 and 6-inch screens in tow. Given the Tenaa-revealed footprints and display diagonals, we’re guessing the names will be ZTE Nubia X8 and X8 ...

    ZTE seems to be doing with its Nubia sub-brand basically what Huawei’s been doing for Honor-labeled devices, as we patiently await the oft-rumored announcement and subsequent global launch of a Z11 trio. You may notice the most recent hint regarding an approaching Nubia Z11 presentation in Beijing contains no reference to the ZTE name, just a date, venue and tagline that roughly translates “Small world, big wonders.” Clearly, Nubia is alluding to the April 19 unveiling of both a small and big phone, as well as an even bigger one, we presume, dubbed Z11 Max. Or perhaps it’s only the ...

    ZTE-subsidiary Nubia has a brand new global website featuring a very puzzling smartphone called "My Prague." It was imaged upon the Czech capital's preponderance of creativity that's renowned throughout circles of high culture. Nubia is introducing its sequel to its My Prague handset, but this time around, there's no Prague for you. It's just the Prague S now. While the Prague S can be pegged as one of the mid-ranger class in 2016 with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, it does sport a 5.2-inch full HD Super AMOLED display. Storage comes in at 64GB with 3GB of RAM. The small 2,200mAh ...

    It'll take a bit of time before we see that Nubia Z11 that everyone seems to be looking forward to this year. But until we get a little more something something than just the front panel, we're not really up for it just yet. But as ZTE subsidiary Nubia wants to keep the counter up on devices, it'll be doing just that next week. Specifically, we're looking forward to what might be known in English as the My Prague S, a step up from last August's My Prague phone. The capital of the Czech Republic, being one of the art capitals of the world, has been exploited for branding the My Prague as a ...

    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 ...

    The Nubia Z11 didn't launch at CES 2016, even though we were so hyped on making it just appear in front of our eyes. Turns out, you can't rush successors over predecessors. But just because the hype has faded from the Z9 and the Nubia brand's global expansion, there's still some fun to be had with a hardware leak on the Z11. [gallery columns="4" ids="460252,460253,460254,460255"] At least, part of the Z11 — that part is the front panel. Would anyone want to own such a thin, brittle object anyways? Anyways, the beveled panel will supposedly ride on top of a major feature carried over ...

    ZTE is looking to blend into the background as far as its own brand goes and let its stars shine — it's somewhat the case with the Axon and Nubia brands already. The latter, by the way, is a full-blown subsidiary of ZTE that wants to expand its label into markets focused on premium handsets at a premium price (and thus, premium margins). Thanks in part to a recent infusion of about $300 million, Nubia shall try. The brand now has its own international website where it will soon sell its products direct to consumers. The site's in Chinese, English and Spanish right now with other ...

    Likely encouraged by the warm reception of US mobile consumers for the Axon line, China-based device maker ZTE is reportedly looking to further perk up its presence in the all-important, super-competitive Western market. Remember the recently rendered Nubia Z11? Of course you do, as it’s not every day that you get to check out such a handsome slab in pre-release form, complete with Samsung-style edges, and what seems like an aluminum unibody construction. This should follow in the footsteps of the Nubia Z9 and Z7, both of which targeted primarily Asian audiences. But ZTE’s very own ...

    After trying (and mostly succeeding) to win the hearts of US Android power users with the relatively inexpensive Axon phone, China-based gadget manufacturer ZTE is reportedly prepping a big push for European mobile consumers. According to official company statements, “devices from the four product lines that we will be focusing on globally” are to be showcased at the IFA trade show next week in Berlin. The four families of course include the Axon and Nubia, but also the slightly lesser known Blade and outright rare Spro. It’s going to be interesting to see which Axon variant shall ...

    There was no flagship at HTC's MWC 2014 event -- just the Desire 816 -- and there was no flagship at ZTE's booth either. We know HTC is preparing the 2013 One flagship follow-up for March 25, but, apparently, ZTE has selected the same day for its Nubia X6 launch, according to the image above. The event will take place on the same day as HTC's All New HTC One (tentative name) announcement, but in Beijing. The phablet is expected to have a larger-than-six-inch display with possibly QHD/2K resolution (though Full HD is mentioned in other leaks), and a 13/16MP camera, depending on which ...
