ZTE Nubia X6 is a spec junkie’s dream come true, but you’ll probably never be able to get it

zte-nubia-x6-2014-03-26-01

ZTE decided they wanted to go and pull out all the stops for their latest smartphone, which has just been revealed as the ZTE Nubia X6. The company is not typically known for deliver the most compelling options in the world, but this list of specs will wake you up this morning better than any cup of coffee ever could. Here’s what they’ll be stuffing inside:

  • 6.4-inch 1080p HD display
  • Snapdragon 801 processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 128GB of storage
  • 4,250 mAh battery
  • 13 megapixel rear AND front camera

All for about $640, no less. The device also comes in a lesser specced model, though we’re no yet sure where that baseline lies.

Unfortunately this thing likely won’t be seeing the light of day outside of China, but if you happen to be making a move to Hong Kong in the near future then you’ll definitely want to track this one down. Consider making it your next smartphone if you can’t help but to have the most ridiculous suite of specs available.

    thats what online stores are for :) As long as it supports the right networks

    • JaswinderSinghJammu

      Exactly, you don’t want a big ole phone with amazing specs and you are stuck on 2G

      • a) youth.in.asia

        Like a Note 3 on the Sprint network?

    • Vincent Emmanuel Lee

      It has dual sim support 3g and LTE

      That’s what I was thinking, I’ll import it in a second if it’ll work on T-Mobile.

  • Cliff_McAllister

    (Viewing my spec checklist) Yeah it’s a no go for me unless it has stun gun capabilities. But all the other specs fit my criteria.

    • Henri Weich Conradie

      If you put it in an Otterbox Armour case (if one existed for the device) I’m pretty sure you could knock someone out by wacking ‘em in the back of the head with it.

    Holy crap………… o__O

    DAT BATTERY <3

    • Henri Weich Conradie

      The sensation of seeing a device like this could probably be called a techgasm.

  • Marsg

    6.4 inches, while I do like the specs this is bordering in tablet territory.

    • http://www.phandroid.com Quentyn Kennemer

      Bordering? It damn near completed its invasion.

      • Henri Weich Conradie

        We are the Phablet-Men. Your devices will be upgraded. You will all be uniform and large.

      • Marsg

        Some consider 7+ tablet sized. I’m not liking this trend at all, maybe their trying to cover up the fact that they need a bigger battery.

  • Timbo1

    This is what the Xperia Z Ultra should have been…camera wise and not the crappy one that’s on it now.

  • Chris McKeever

    Sd Card slot I hope? 256GB would be sploogetastic!

    • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

      Oh man that’d be great! Either way 128 is sweet. We need more devices with this option.

    • Henri Weich Conradie

      Yo dawg we heard you like storage space…

  • AbbyZFresh

    No Google Play store. No buy

    • Grady Reid

      Not like you couldn’t install it yourself.

    • Henri Weich Conradie

      You sound like a stereotypical store owner. Hurry up and buy!

  • DavidB23

    Who is buying these gigantic phones? That is just over a half inch shy of a 7″ tablet!

    • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

      I am.

    • No_Nickname90

      I set my friend’s LG G Flex near my Nexus 7 2014. That phone is quite large. =.S

    • Henri Weich Conradie

      Depending on the bezel I could see myself buying a device with about 5.7″ screen but if it becomes too large to pocket and/or to pocket without risking losing it I’m afraid I wouldn’t buy it.

  • domatau

    PHAT-BLET

  • Tony Lai

    And then the phone is outdated in 3-6 months =P

  • J Cav the Great

    “Woah! Down Boy” *looks at crotch*

    • Henri Weich Conradie

      Is that a phablet in your pants or are you just rectangled to see me?

  • guitarist5122

    This will put the galaxy mega to shame

    • Grady Reid

      Everything that isn’t apple puts that garbage to shame.

      • Henri Weich Conradie

        Galaxy Mega would actually be perfect for people with less-than-great eyesight who don’t really care about specs or being able to pocket your phone.

    • No_Nickname90

      The Galaxy Mega is larger, but weaker than the Note 2, if I’m not mistaken.
