With the official launch of the Nubia Z9 only a few days away, it isn’t a surprise that information on the upcoming device’s price has been leaked through Chinese social media site Weibo. According to the leak, the new bezel-less smartphone from Nubia will cost a staggering 4,299 Yuan.
For reference, the Nubia Z9 features the first truly borderless design in the industry and also features a slew of high-end specifications including a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,000mAh battery.
It looks like the folks at Nubia are really positioning the Z9 as a high-end smartphone and banking on its borderless design and high-end specs as big selling points because at 4,299 Yuan, the Nubia Z9 costs only around 1,000 Yuan less than the iPhone 6.
There’s still a chance that the leaked price could be higher than actual selling price when the device is officially launched on May 9 so we’ll just have to wait for that. And if it does end up costing 4,299 Yuan, we wonder if the design and specifications of the Nubia Z9 will be enough to convince users to buy it.[source]
