Although there isn't a timeframe for when ZTE's nubia Z18 handset will arrive to market, if these newly leaked pictures of the alleged handset are to be believed, it will look quite similar to the Essential PH-1.
As you can see from the images, the handset offers a small cutout towards the top of the display to make room for the front-facing camera. The Z18 also has a near bezel-less look around most of its edges but does still have a small chin on the bottom section.
As for specifications, if the listing found on TENAA is accurate, the smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor, come packed with either 6GB or 8GB RAM, with internal storage options coming in at 64GB or 128GB. The unit will have dual rear cameras, featuring 24MP and 8MP sensors. The front-facing camera will also be 8MP.
Again, there isn't a timeframe on when this handset will find its way to consumers but since it is part of the ZTE's nubia line, we can probably be certain that it will most likely be exclusive to Asia when it does come to market.
