First live images of China's ZTE Nubia Z5 flagship

Nubia Z5 will be thinner than iPhone's 5

The first live image of ZTE's Nubia Z5 flagship smartphone introduced at the end of October has now been offered, thanks to China's CNMO. Along with the image, the source got some information about the handset, including that it will ship in Asia in December. The phone's body was reportedly styled in Italy, and a side-by-side comparison to Apple's iPhone 5 reveals it is slightly thinner.

The image also shows dual speakers, a camera with an LED flash (reported to sport a 13-megapixel sensor), the SIM card door, and a 3.5mm headphone/set jack. Otherwise, the phone is expected to get a quad-core CPU and one of the first 5-inch touchscreens with 1,920x1,080 resolution. While the choice of OS isn't revealed, it's expected to be one of the latest versions of Android, likely skinned to ZTE's specifications.

Pricing still hasn't been revealed, and the phone likely won't arrive in markets outside of Asia. [via PhoneArena]

    Talk about a misleading photo. The one demonstrating thinness is set so as to imply a large difference when it's marginal at best *and* that difference demonstration clearly avoids the large bump shown in the shot of the full back.
