Last October 15 Nubia teased that they will be announcing something new soon and it looks like we now know what they have up their sleeve as details on the Nubia Z9 Max Elite and Z9 Mini Elite have leaked online today.
According to the leak, the Nubia Z9 Max Elite features an upgraded side fingerprint sensor which allows users to unlock the device as well as activate other functions including releasing the camera shutter and more. As for its configuration, the Z9 Max Elite features almost the same configuration as the standard Z9 Max including the 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and 4G LTE connectivity. The Z9 Max Elite also supports expandable storage via microSD card up to 128GB, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a USB Type-C port.
As for the Nubia Z9 Mini Elite, it features a few upgraded specifications including the increase in RAM from 2GB to 3GB, the addition of a retinal scanner, and a few new features. The Z9 Max Mini Elite features a 5-inch full HD 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 1.5GHz 64-bit octa-core processor, the aforementioned 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 4G LTE connectivity, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
The leaked information did not include the price and release date for either of the new devices so we’ll have to wait for more leaks or an official announcement from Nubia.
