the market is certainly not lacking of giant smartphones but as far as us, the consumers, are concerned, it won’t hurt a bit to have more options. one of the latest to join the big phone fray is Chinese maker, Nubia with its Z5 Android Smartphone. officially unveiled in Beijing a day after Christmas, the Z5 looks to be pretty promising in terms of the look department. under the hood, it is equipped with a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (APQ8064), supported by 2GB of RAM and sports a Sharp-sourced 5.0-inch 1080p high definition display with OGS full lamination technology, boasting a pixel density of 443 ppi. other features include Adreno 320 GPU, 32GB of internal storage, a 13.0-megapixel F2.2 BSI main camera with five element lens from Konica Minolta (with LED flash, of course), a 2.0-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2,300mAh battery, a full suite of sensors including 3-axis gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, ambient and proximity sensor and your usual servings of connectivity options. all these goodies are packed into an aluminum unibody design phone touting a super narrow bezel of 2.67mm and a ultra slim profile of just 7.6mm thin. along with the Z5 Android Smartphone, Nubia is offering user a secured, private cloud storage with free backup service (much like Apple’s iCloud), though no details of the capacity is not given. the Z5 will be loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Nubia’s proprietary gesture controls. available in a choice of white or black for 3,456 RMB (roughly US$555) in China but no word as to whether this beauty will be made available globally.
