The ZTE Nubia Z7, the top end offering in the company's Nubia line-up, may soon be treated to a successor, if we are to believe a video, posted on Chinese social media. It only gets a cameo in a fashion presentation, but that's about enough to reveal a few details on what will likely be the Nubia Z9.
For starters, the new model will sport a shiny glass back with a central Nubia badge, very much reminiscent of the Z members of the Sony Xperia family. The boxy rectangular shape with a surrounding metal frame is not far from Sony's design language either. To be fair, though, the marginally rounded corners are a feature of the current Nubia Z7 as well.
The previous model packed a 5.5-inch QHD display, and in the gentle model's hands it appears that the screen size will remain the same. She is, however, tapping on a black screen, so it could just be a mockup.
Unfortunately, we're still in the dark when it comes to hardware. The alleged Nubia Z9 might make it to the MWC, merely a few days from now, so the wait won't be long.
