Nubia, ZTE’s sub-brand has had a fairly busy run till now. The company has released two premier smartphones till now, namely the Nubia Z17 and its compact sibling the Z17 Mini. Now it seems the company has turned its attention towards the entry-level segment with the Nubia NX907J surfacing on TENAA recently.
TENAA is China’s equivalent to the US Federal Communications Commission and certifies every smartphone before its launch in China. The interesting point to note here is that generally TENAA also gives us a lot of information regarding the smartphones it certifies and the Nubia NX907J is no exception.
From the listing, we can see that the smartphone is carrying an octa-core CPU clocked @1.4GHz SoC but it does not mention whether it is from MediaTek or Qualcomm. The chipset is complemented with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage which can be expanded via a microSD card up to 128 GB. The front of the Nubia NX907J is dominated by a 5.5-inch HD (720 x1280) display. At the rear of the device is a 13-megapixel camera with a LED flash while selfie duties are handled by a 5-megapixel sensor up front. Powering all this hardware is a 2900mAh battery unit which might seem a little low but coupled with such anaemic hardware and an HD display it is likely to be more than enough. The device is shown running on Android v.6.0.1, Marshmallow most likely under Nubia’s custom UI skin.
The TENAA page has a couple of images of the Nubia NX907J which show us that the device is definitely a budget segment handset with a chassis made out of polycarbonate and metal. There is a physical home button under the display of the device which mind you has huge bezels all around so it would not be winning any design competitions. The power button and SIM tray are on the right side of the frame while the volume buttons are placed on the left side of the chassis frame.
We should see this budget device arriving sooner rather than later thanks to its listing on the TENAA website.
