Looks like ZTE’s Nubia will join the early birds to launch a smartphone packing Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chipset. A new Nubia smartphone has appeared on AnTuTu’s Weibo page showing a specs lineup which includes the latest Qualcomm flagship chip.
The device is simply identified as Nubia NX606J and is believed to be the Nubia Z19 flagship. Judging by the specs listed, the device is the company’s next flagship model so it really could be the Nubia Z19. The AnTuTu listing shows the Nubia NX606J comes with 6GB of RAM as well as 32GB of storage. This should be one of the variants as there will likely be another one with a more spacious storage. Nubia could also include an 8GB RAM variant on the upcoming flagship model just like we saw on the Nubia Z17. The NX606J is also listed to pack a full-screen design with a FullHD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080pixels. The device will also get its interface from the Android 8.0 Oreo OS out of the box. Of course, the Android Oreo OS will come with Nubia’s Custom UI.
The AnTuTu listing also outlines the benchmark score of the device and it is very much similar to other Snapdragon 845 models which passed through AnTuTu recently. The Nubia NX606J managed to record a score of 271,674 points on AnTuTu. This is slightly higher than the Galaxy S9+ AnTuTu score of 265,257 but the difference isn’t much. We can’t say when the device will be launched but it is unlikely the device will debut at MWC 2018. The Nubia Z17 was launched in June last year but this model could be unveiled a bit earlier than that. We’ll be on the lookout for more details and possibly renders of the device.
