Details of the ZTE nubia Z5S had been leaking. Those early leaks were suggesting a handset with a 5-inch display and Snapdragon 800 processor. And well, it looks like that is what ZTE has unveiled. Or, at least part of what ZTE has unveiled. You see, along with the 5-inch nubia Z5S, there was also word of the nubia Z5S mini with a not-so-mini 4.7-inch display.
While there are some differences between the two handsets, they do share many of the same specs. For example, both are launching with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and both will have LTE and/or 3G connectivity (depending on the market). Both models will also have a 5 megapixel front-facing camera and 13 megapixel front-facing camera. That said, while both models have a 13MP rear-facing camera, they are not identical.
The nubia Z5S will have an f/2.0 aperture with optical image stabilization and the ability to record video at up to 120 frames per second and also in 4K. The Z5S mini will have an f/2.2 aperture and skip on the optical image stabilization. Both models also have 2GB of RAM and options for 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.
Otherwise, the Z5S is powered by a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor while the Z5S mini has a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600. In terms of battery, the Z5S has a 2300 mAh and the Z5S mini has a slightly smaller 2000 mAh. Both handsets are on the thin side and measure in at 7.6mm thick.
As for weight, the Z5S and Z5S mini are close and come in at 126 grams and 120 grams respectively. The Z5S 5-inch display is 1080p and with a ppi of 442. The pricing will vary depending on whether the handset has LTE or 3G and by how much internal storage is available.
But with that in mind, the Z5S pricing will begin at 1999 Yuan for a 16GB 3G model and top out at 3546 Yuan for an LTE model with 32GB of storage. The Z5S mini starts at 1499 Yaun for a 16GB 3G model and then climbs to 2345 Yuan for an LTE model with 32GB of internal storage.
