Yesterday, ZTE announced two new devices in its premium Nubia lineup, namely the ZTE Nubia Z9 Max phablet and the ZTE Nubia Z9 Mini. The Max features top of the line specs, which includes the fast Snapdragon 810 processor. Naturally, with high end specs, we expected a big score on AnTuTu and finally, we can officially confirm that we were not disappointed at all.
According to the image given above, the ZTE Nubia Z9 Max scores an amazing 56,892 points. This makes it one of the best smartphones in the market right now. We can also see the compact, ZTE Nubia Z9 Mini besides the Max, however, its score on AnTuTu is just average. Even with the octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, the device managed to score only 28,501 points. This is pretty disappointing given that the 64-bit MT6752 is capable of getting up to 40,000 points!
The ZTE Z9 Max comes with a full HD 5.5-inch display with 3GB RAM and 16GB of expandable ROM. It supports 4G LTE network and runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Nubia 5.8 UI on top. As for the Z9 Mini, it comes with a smaller 5-inch display with full HD resolution, 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM, expandable via MicroSD.
Both the phones feature Dual SIM Dual standby and 4G LTE. You also have the same 16MP + 8MP cameras on these devices along with a 2900 mAh battery.
For more information about both the phones, check out our launch article.
So, now that you have the AnTutu score of the Z9 Max, are you impressed? Would you be willing to shell out $400 for the device?
FYI, both the models goes on sale in China starting April 16th.

Although its been around four months since Google debuted its powerful Nexus 6 flagship, the device is finally coming to China this month. A few days back, the Nexus 6 dubbed Moto X Pro in China hit TENAA further confirming its entry into the domestic market. The specs were also leaked at the same time, but pricing was still unsure.
However, we may finally have an idea about Moto X Pro’s retail price, since a major Chinese media website reported earlier today that Motorola could price this flagship around 4299 Yuan. This comes to almost $692, which is an hefty price even for a device with such powerful specs. When the Nexus 6 debuted in US, it went on sale for a slightly lower $649 retail price for the unlocked version. The price is still not 100% fixed, but still it should easily go upwards of 4000 Yuan.
Motorola has big plans for China this year, as the company is all set to release most of its devices in the market. Moto G, Moto X, Moto 360 and even the Moto Hint Bluetooth Earpiece will see a launch in China this year. Motorola has also announced that its famous smartphone customizations service, the Moto Maker will also debut in China soon. This will definitely be a nice addition since it allows users to choose custom back panels and materials for their smartphone.
As for the specs of Moto X Pro, its as powerful as the Nexus 6. So, you get a 6-inch display with 2K resolution, 2.7GHZ quad-core Snapdragon 805, 32GB of expandable storage and 13MP rear camera. The phone will support all the major networks in the country, thanks to its support for GSM, CDMA, TD-SCDMA, TD-LTE, LTE FDD, and WCDMA.
The Moto X Pro is expected to go on sale by March —> Read More

HTC’s latest revision to its One smartphone …
It looks like HTC is planning to increase its foothold in China this year. We have already heard rumors about HTC One E9 as well as E9 Plus debuting in China in the coming few days. Even the HTC One M9 Plus is expected to be unveiled in Beijing at an official event in April. But it seems like these three aren’t the only premium devices that we’ll see from the company soon.
Upleaks recently revealed on Weibo that HTC is working on a new 8.9-inch tablet in partnership with China Mobile. We could see this new tablet as early as May 2015, says the leak.
The leak reveals a comprehensive list of specs. One of the interesting aspects revealed today is the processor used by this 8.9-inch tablet. Upleaks says that HTC T1H tablet will be powered not by the traditional Qualcomm or Mediatek chipsets but rather, an 2.2 GHz Allwinner H8 octa-core processor manufactured using the 28nm process. The chipset will use the PowerVR SGX544 Graphic Processing Unit.
Other important tech specs include 2GB RAM, 16GB / 32GB ROM and an 8.9-inch QXGA 2048 × 1530 pixel resolution display. The rear camera will be of 16MP while the front shooter will be of 8MP. The tablet will run on Android 5.0 with the company’s new Sense 7 UI on top.
The tablet will measure just 7.88mm in thickness despite the large 6700 mAh battery on board. The HTC T1H tablet will feature dual boom sound speakers too.
There will be two different version of this 8.9-inch tab, namely the HTC T1H Wi-Fi and the HTC T1H LTE. It is said the device will be launched by the end of Q2 2015 around May. No information about its pricing has been leaked but expect it to be cheaper than its competitors.

Bloody Disgusting :
As uncomfortable as it eventually became watching a beloved series like Resident Evil stumble these past few years, theres something to be said about its willingness to adapt. Unless theres a massive dip in sales, its rare for a popular franchise like this to try something different. Capcom has had a worldwide presence for decades, so its easy to forget theyre still very much a Japanese institution, and with that comes a strict adherence to traditions. —> Read More
