While most of us Android enthusiasts in the West will probably take a break from technology on Christmas Day, spend some quality time with our families and check our stockings for presents from Santa, Chinese techies might get an unexpected treat come December 25.
Just two days ago, we saw some real-world images of the ZTE Nubia Z5 show up online. Frustratingly enough, they didn’t show off a whole lot. Now we’ve got some images of the front of the device, but only a section of the screen.
While ZTE’s smartphone sales are expected to top off at around 25 million, 10 million less than predicted, it seems to take more than that to take the wind out of the company’s sails. ZTE has announced that it expects to sell 50 million smartphones in 2013.
Although we don’t have psychic abilities as far as we know of, we were ready to bet that ZTE was going to counter Huawei’s newly unveiled 5-inch Ascend D2 phablet with a super-phone of its own soon. It only took around 24 hours or so for that to happen, so we’re proud to have been proved right and to be able to present to you the ZTE Z5.
