ZTE pulled off the same trick it did last year with the Z7 Nubia Max and mini, and announced a Z9 Nubia Max and a Z9 mini variant as well. The Max is a 5.5" 1080p handset with Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3 GB DDR4 memory, and 16 GB of storage plus a microSD slot. The camera duo is a 16 MP rear and 8 MP front-facing shooters.
ZTE Nubia Z9 Max throws in a Hi-Fi audio experience with 7.1 channel surround, thanks to the premium AK4375 sound processor. All of this is backed by a 2900 mAh battery pack, and stuffed in a premium titanium frame with a thin aluminum alloy casing covered with reinforced patterned glass as a back surface. The phone is running Android 5.0 with nubia UI V2.8 on top.
