ZTE sends out press invites, a new nubia phone coming in mid-October

With a new nubia device bouncing around the rumor mill, there was bound to be an event soon. And here it is – a press invite was sent out for an October 12 unveiling.

Just what will be unveiled the invite does not say it merely shows a glowing rectangle of light. If this is a bezel-less device, then the NX589J linked above is not it. That one very much has bezels.

But there was another device too, NX595J, which was slated to have a larger screen and smaller bezels (though this particular leak is rather iffy). Whatever the model number, an upgrade on the nubia Z17 seems to be in order.

Its interesting that this new ZTE nubia will drop between the Pixel 2 (October 4) and the Huawei Mate 10 (October 16). Those two are heavy hitters and ZTE needs a real attention-grabber if it wants to compete.
