by Jed John 14

Two new Nubia smartphones have appeared on the website of China’s telecoms certification agency TENAA where they have been certified. The smartphones are listed with the model numbers NX551J and NX573J and both adopt with the same design language. The renders of the two Nubia devices shows both also has white front panels, with a round home button having a red circle design.

The renders of the two Nubia devices shows both have white front panels, with a round home button embedded with a red circle on top. At the rear, both the NX551J and NX573J are quite different in looks as one comes with a dual camera setup and similar U-shaped antenna similar to the one Apple features on the iPhone 7 Plus, while the other one sports a single camera with the antenna band running right through the camera (renders of this particular Nubia smartphone has actually leaked earlier on).

The listed specifications also show that one of the smartphones is a mid-ranger while the other is a high-end model. Of the two, the NX551J which uses a dual-camera and U-shaped antenna sports a 5.5-inch OLED display with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080p).The device is equipped with an octa-core processor with a frequency of 2.0Gz and the processor works with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which is capable of being expanded up to 128GB.

The camera setup is listed as a 13MP shooter at the front and a 16MP shooter at the rear. The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and packs a large 3,560mAh.

On the other hand, the second model NX573J sports a 5.5-inch TFT display 1280 x 720 pixels. It features an unnamed Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. The processor is backed by a 3GB  RAM while there is 64GB of storage. Also, the device comes with a 13MP front camera and a 16MP rear shooter. The new phone also runs on Android Marshmallow while the lights would be kept on by a 2,900mAh battery.

We don’t know for sure when the smartphones would be released but we believe that wouldn’t be too far off. Already, Nubia had teased the launch of a dual camera smartphone believed to be the Nubia Z17 Mini scheduled for tomorrow March 21. That may just be the NX551J model dropping but we are not so sure about the name. A 5.5-inch Mini? Now, that’s an irony but it won’t be the first device have such strange naming pattern if that happens to be the case.

      Hi, I am planning to get a new phone and I was wondering if you could suggest me one? Redmi Note 4X or MI5s?

      • Assefa Hanson

        What are you looking for, what is your priority or most important thing to you, if you want amazing battery life, good gaming performance , cheaper price then go 4x

        If you want better gaming performance a better camera but less battery performance and is willing to spend more go mi5s


        Moto G5 plus

        When are you planning on buying it? If you are set on buying a Xiaomi, I would wait to see the reviews of the 5c, Xiaomi’s Surge S1 phone. The price sits between the 4x and the 5s. I am interested to see how the performance/efficiency is. With Xiaomi designing the SoC it could be very well optimized.

        • Lucien

          Hi Balco, I am planning to buy a new phone pretty soon. The 5C seems to be a great phone but its battery capacity is a downside for me. I would love to wait for the MI6 but I guess the device will be sold at a higher price tag after reseller’s margin profit. I have seen some reviews for the Redmi Note 4X Mondial version, it is a great phone with amazing battery life and moreover Xiaomi managed to improve the camera which takes pretty decent pictures even in low light. I really like the Redmi Note 4X in black color (front and back). On the other hand, there is the MI5S which is available around 285€ for the 3GB/64GB grey version. MI5S is a flagship phone and has a lot better camera compared to the Redmi Note 4X. After seeing some reviews, MI5S’s fingerprint scanner is apparently not perfect and the up & down volume buttons generating some noise when using them.

          I am not really a power user, if the Redmi Note 4X was a bit more compact I would have gone for it without any hesitation.

            For battery we need to see how efficient the Surge S1 is before we can say either way. It could end up having better battery life than the Mi5s or it could be worse. Until it’s tested we won’t really know.

            Have you considered the Redmi 4 Prime? It’s similar to the 4x only a smaller size

          • Lucien

            I have seen techtablets review for the MI5C and it looks like that the battery life is ok. However, the device have weaker 3G and 2G, maybe this will be fixed with software updates. I have considered the Redmi 4 Prime for a long time but it is sold at a price above the current price asked for the Redmi Note 4X which is available with band 20 4G LTE. The microphone is also weaker on the Redmi 4 Prime, I mean that when recording some videos the sound is noisy. Redmi Note 4X has also a better camera.

            It is difficult to make the right choice.

          • balcobomber25

            3g and 2g speeds are affected by a lot and won’t be the same for any 2 users. Everything from network choice to location from a tower will affect speeds.

            Having said that just get the 4x it seems like that is the one you really want. It doesn’t take long to get used to using a 5.5 inch phone over a 5 inch. Many people even prefer the larger screen once they actually start using it.

          • Lucien

            Thanks for your comment. I really don’t know if I will like a 5.5″ device to be honest with you. Are you waiting for the MI6?

          • balcobomber25

            Go to a store and just play around with some 5.5 phones, I didnt think I would like it either, now I prefer bigger phones.

            I am waiting for the Mi6 and the next Meizu MX phone.

          • Lucien

            Thank you for your message! According you, what will be the price of the MI6 after resellers add their margin profit? I am considering to wait for the MI6 but at the same time the price of the MI5S (the grey version) is slowly declining. MI5S has some issues according some users that’s the reason why I am hesitating to buy the device. Moreover, if the MI6 is sold at an attractive price I might be tempted to get one but who knows when the device will be released because of the limited stock of SD835.

            I remember that you bought an Honor 8, what do you really think about Huawei/Honor in terms of software optimization?

            Maybe I should get the Redmi Note 4X even if I do prefer 5.2″ screen for a better usage with one hand.

            Peace Balco!

          • balcobomber25

            Mi6 will start at 1999 yuan in China but that will probably be for a SD821 version. The 835 will be a more premium model. (This is all my opinion).

            As for resellers you can usually add $50-100 to figure out their markup. The good news is the Yuan is currently weak against the dollar so the Mi6 will cost less than the Mi5 did on the second hand market.

            I haven’t had too many issues with the Honor 8. Huawei has come a long way from the days when they had terrible software. I still prefer Xiaomi’s MIUI to any other software but EMUI from Huawei is close to being really good.

            Thanks Balco! Any news from MaxPower? All the best!
