ZTE's new Nubia Z11 boasts flagship specs and a sharp looking -- though somewhat familiar -- metal body. If you're thinking it looks like the iPhone, you're not wrong: the Z11 even has a circular home button. The Chinese company has deviated from Apple's design, however, by putting the fingerprint scanner on the back of this 5.5-inch phone.
While the Z11 does look pretty swish, at least in ZTE's press pics, the price isn't too bad. It will come in two flavours, a version with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage for 2,499 yuan, which converts to around $375, £280 or AU$510. A model with 6GB memory and 128GB of storage will go for 3,499 yuan, which is about $525, £295 or AU$710.
it will launch the phone in the US at the same time as China. It's expected to be instead of via carriers like most phones.
With respectable specs, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera and 4G LTE, this phone could be quite a good deal for those looking for an off-contract flagship that doesn't cost a bomb. We'll find out when we get our hands on it soon.
As a bonus for soccer fans, ZTE will also be selling a Cristiano Ronaldo-signed version, though this is likely only limited to China.
