CES 2014: Nubia phones from ZTE are made for shutterbugs

2:03 /

Souped up with 13-megapixel rear facing cameras and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras, ZTE looks towards budding photogs with its Nubia 5S and 5S Mini.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La here from CNET and I'm here at CES 2014 in Las Vegas with the ZTE Nubia 5S and 5S Mini. Now let's start with the 5S first. It has a 5-inch 1080p screen and it is equipped with a Snapdragon 800 processor. The device is aimed for photo enthusiasts, so there's a 13-megapixel camera with flash as well as optical image stabilization and a new low-light sensor from Sony. It also can record 4K video. On the front you'll see a 5-megapixel camera. It's powered by a 2.3 ampere-hour battery and it runs Android 4.2.2. However, ZTE told me that it can be updateable to 4.3. As for capacity, it doesn't have expandable memory but it does have 32 gigs of internal memory and 2 gigs of RAM. Now let's move on to the 5S Mini. ZTE scaled back a lot of its specs but it's still a decent handset. For example, it has a 4.7 HD 720p screen. It also is powered by a 2 ampere-hour battery and it has 16 gigs of internal memory as well as expandable memory up 32 gigs. While you won't find a lot of the camera features that I mentioned previously in the 5S, it's still has a 13-megapixel camera just like the 5S as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Now, unlike the Nubia 5S which only comes in black and white, the Mini comes in a wide array of colors. Right now we are looking at the matte white one but it also comes in green, pink, yellow and blue. Now US availability is still up in the air for these handsets, but a prior Nubia device did make its way to the US where it was sold on line and unlocked. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out the Nubia 5S and the 5S Mini from ZTE.
