ZTE Nubia Z7 equals majority of LG G3 specifications
ZTE has launched three Android smartphones as successors to the Nubia Z5S and Z5S mini. The main Nubia Z7 is a device similar to the LG G3 in terms of specification, complete with a 1440x2560 5.5-inch display, the Nubia Z7 Max is a slightly lower-specification device with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, and the Z7 mini has a slightly smaller 5-inch Full HD screen.
The main Nubia Z7 has a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage, reports Phone Arena. On the back is a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and an Exmor RS sensor, with it also having a 5-megapixel front camera, Wi-Fi, dual SIM LTE connectivity, and a 3,000mAh battery. The Nubia Z7 Max keeps the bulk of the Z7's specifications, except for the lower-resolution display and 2GB of RAM, but it turns out to be a much cheaper device.

The third smartphone in the batch, the Z7 mini, keeps the same processor RAM, front and rear cameras, and dual SIM card capabilities as the Z7 Max, though its storage is lowered to 16GB and it uses a 2,300mAh battery.
ZTE is selling the Nubia Z7 in China for 3456 yuan (approximately $550), while the Max and mini versions cost 1999 yuan ($320) and 1499 yuan ($240) respectively. It is unclear if ZTE is planning to bring the new Nubia devices outside of China in the future.
