ZTE To Launch A High-End Flagship On July 21: Will It Be The Rumored ZTE Star 3?

by Joel 3

ZTE’s Nubia division has been very busy in the past couple of months. After launching the Nubia Z9 Mini, Max and the bezelless Nubia Z9 flagship, the company also launched the Nubia My Prague smartphone in Europe recently.

But these devices were from the Nubia division and there are a couple of ZTE’s own lineups like the ZTE Blade series as well as the Grand S series. It looks like one of these series will get a new flagship model on July 21.

Yes, we have received an invite from the company for a new flagship launch even which will be held on July 21. The invite further says that in addition to high-end specs, the new flagship will focus on its design as well as battery life. The company reportedly will incorporate a large high-density battery enough to last for about 50 hours.

Unfortunately at this moment, we are not quite sure which is this new flagship model. At this time of the year, the company usually launches the Nubia Z series smartphones but all the Z series models are already released. Moreover, both the Grand S and Blade series have got a new flagship model earlier this year. So, it would most likely be from the ZTE Star series. The latest flagship in the lineup (Star 2) was launched last year in December. Hence, its possible that the new flagship, the ZTE Star 3 will meet us on July 21.

We have been hearing good things about the Star 3, like a dual rear camera setup and even the possibility of 4K display! But, the company is yet to confirm any of these specs.

Anyways, we will be keeping a close eye on the company for more updates. Yesterday, we reported that the company sold over 26 million smartphones in the first half of 2015 and aims to sell about 60 million by the end. So, its not surprising to see that the company is adding yet another flagship in its portfolio, which could boost its sales.

So, what do you think is this mystery flagship phone? Do you think its the Star 3 or do you have any other guesses?
