ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini Photo Leaked Before Official Launching

The digital paparazzi did it again, by releasing a photo of the ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini, right before the official announcement. For many of us, ZTE may seem like an extra-terrestrial company, but check this out : they sell more smartphones than Nokia. Yeah, that's how bad it is for Nokia, folks.  Anyway, the ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini is the mini-me kind of thing when it comes to ZTE's flagship, the ZTE Nubia 5. This one was released officially by the Chinese company and it's one of the best Android running smartphones on the market, in terms of price/quality. The ZTE Nubia 5 comes with an aluminum unibody chassis, running on a Qualcomm S4 chipset, featuring a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz,2 GB of RAM, a full HD 1080p display made by Sharp with a cool 443 ppi pixel density and sports a 13 Megapixels camera. All these are powered by a 2300 mAh battery and of course, the heart of the system is Android 4.2.2 JellyBean. What makes the ZTE Nubia Z5 really cool in my book is its price, which is significantly lower than its direct competitors. zte-nubia-z5[1]  Moving along with the story, we now have photo of the  mini version of the flagship, namely the ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini: ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini  Rumors are that the ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini will have a 4.7 inches wide screen with 720p resolution and it will run on a Snapdragon 600 system on chip, with a quad core CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz, this time a Krait processor instead of the Snapdragon S4. It figures, being a downgrade from the current flagship, at a more affordable price. Also, the ZTE Nubia Z5 Mini will come with the same 8 GB or RAM, but with a camera with a resolution  of only 8 Megapixels instead of 13. The smartphone's dimensions are reduced, the Z5 mini measures 65.7 x 134.8 x 10.3mm and weighs ~160g.  Until now, we have no official statement from ZTE, but hold on to your hat, the Mini for the n00b in you is on its way!
