The biggest new sis that they will measure in at 5.2 inches and 6 inches, accordingly. Other specs include a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3-4 GB of RAM and a 2K panel.

We saw some of the best voice control features with the ZTE Star 2. It worked like a charm during our hands-on time with it. Now ZTE is announcing they don’t plan to keep this feature exclusive to this device, which comes as great news to us.

More rumors about the Nubia Z9 emerge and today we have a possible price point. If an online retailer’s page is to be believed, the Nubia Z9 is to cost 4299 Yuan!
