ZTE has confirmed that the company's premium Nubia Z7 Max handset will be launching in India, though it has not indicated pricing or a release date.
While replying to a user enquiring if the Nubia Z7 Max will launch in India, ZTE Corporation's official Facebook handle said, "Thanks for the asking! Yes, it is coming soon."
The reply was first spotted by GizChina. The Chinese handset maker has also not clarified whether it will be unveiling the complete Nubia range in India, or just the Nubia Z7 Max.
Announced last month, the Nubia Z7 Max was expected to be launched in India ahead of the festive season, priced in the range of Rs. 24,000 to Rs. 26,000. An earlier report also claimed that ZTE would unveil the dual-SIM variant of the Nubia Z7 Max for the Indian market.
ZTE launched the Nubia Z7 Max alongside the Nubia Z7 and Nubia Z7 mini. Both Nubia Z7 Max and Z7 mini are the variants of the Nubia Z7.
The ZTE Nubia Z7 Max comes with a 5.5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat (with Nubia UI 2.0).
