Leaked images show the mini version of ZTE’s flagship Nubia Z5 in action, hints at a MIUI inspired interface.

ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini (1)

After launching the Nubia Z5 flagship Smartphone, rumors began flying that ZTE is also working on a mini version of their flagship. Unlike other mini versions with 4.3-inch displays, the Nubia Z5 Mini is actually quite big, with a  4.7-inch HD display in tow. That’s 2012 flagship specifications in a ‘mini’ categorized phone, guess we aren’t too far off from when 5-inch phones will be considered small (mini).

ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini specifications:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 APQ8064T
  • 1.5 GHz Quad-Core Krait CPU
  • Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 4.7-inch HD (1280 x 720) TFT IPS Display
  • 8 MP Rear Cam, 5 MP Front Cam
  • Micro SD Card Slot
  • Micro-USB, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Dimensions: 65.7 x 134.8 x 10.3mm
  • Weight: 160 Grams
  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

Notice the MIUI inspired icons

The Nubia Z5 Mini will be one of those many new Smartphones which pack unconventionally powerful front cameras, a 5 MP module in this one, self-shot lovers rejoice. The rear camera is an 8 MP unit which we’re pretty sure will be capable of shooting 1080p video. ZTE’s upcoming phone has nothing mini about it, dimensionally being almost equivalent to a Galaxy S4. Thickness and weight of the phone are a tad on the high side, we’re hoping that this bump is being used to pack a powerful battery (if not, then bummer).

The ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini is expected to hit markets in July with a yet-to-be-revealed price tag. Of course, the device will end up cheaper than the flagship Zubia Z5. Stay tuned for more coverage.
