These months are the most important of the year. Almost all brands present or put on sale their smartphones these days, and this means that the media have a lot of work. Now even more if we add all the brands that are gaining strength from China.
Today I bring you two new terminals that ZTE has presented, that brand that little by little is taking a very successful and very productive path. The two terminals that have been presented have a metal body along with glass for the back. A combination that they really like, and that many brands are choosing to include in their terminals.
I was very surprised when I saw the specifications of this terminal, which has the latest in hardware and with a very careful design. We have a diagonal of 5.5 inches for the touch panel. This panel will have resolution FullHD, and be made by Sharp. If you look at the front of the device, we see how it does not have the optimization of the space that we would have liked, since it has some somewhat larger upper and lower edges.
In order to run with this screen, ZTE has chosen the jewel in the crown, as far as processors are concerned. We will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 inside the Z9 Max. This makes the device a clear reference for the high-end. Recall that it brings the same SoC as the recently presented HTC One M9 or LG G Flex 2. Without a doubt a success on the part of the company to include this processor. Along with 810 we will have 3GB RAM, a combination that all the top of the range are opting for.
For the photographic section we will have a sensor 16 megapixel IMX234, which will allow us to record up to 4K and take pictures with an f / 2.0 aperture. Also have an LED Flash, that is, we will only have one key. If we go on to talk about the front camera, it seems that ZTE has put the batteries and has decided to opt for a sensor 8 megapixels, which is coming more than enough for the calls selfies.
One thing that I did not like very much is the issue of storage, since it has 16 GB by default instead of opting for the 32 GB that all the devices are including in the high range. Even so, we can insert a MicroSD card to have that extra space. The terminal is completed by a battery of 2,900 mAh and a double SIM card slot.
If we talk about software, of course, the device will come with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, but we will not see it in its virgin state, but it will come under Nubia UI 2.8. A layer that reminds us of almost every layer of customization that comes from China.
In general, a very interesting device, which enters the high range for a price of about 360 euros, but which we will not be able to see in Europe if it is not through importation, since ZTE has no expansion plans at the moment.
But not only has the 5.5-inch terminal been presented, but we also see another bet very interesting for the mid-range. It is a very similar terminal cake, but with some changes that make it drop a little in terms of range. Even so, it gets fully into the bets for the mid-range that come from China.
The terminal has a screen that descends to 5 inches, but that maintains the resolution in FullHD, which becomes a success in my opinion. This lowering of the screen also affects performance, so they have chosen to include a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, a 64-bit octa-core that is reigning in the mid-range, and that has very good performance. It also reduces RAM up to 2 GB, something totally normal for the processor it mounts.
Everything else is shared with its older brother the Z9 Max, so we will also have a great photographic section in this terminal. We will also continue to count on 2,900 mAh battery, so the autonomy is good.
This terminal nor will we see it in Europe If we do not find it imported, it will have a price of 220 euros, which means that it becomes one of the best options for the mid-range.
What do you think of the new device? Would you like to see it in Europe?
