Luckily for ZTE the world didn't end today, but it wasn't bold enough to launch a phone with a new ZTE Nubia Z5 release date now on the cards.
Yesterday we reported that the Chinese firm was planning a dooms-day unveiling of the 5-inch, full HD Nubia Z5 but it looks like the tipsters have gone the way of the Mayans with their prediction skills.
The official Nubia website now has a fancy countdown clock, informing us that the super-sized phone will arrive in 5 days times – on December 26.
Thanks to the official website we can now be sure the Nubia Z5 is the real deal, although specifications, price and availability are still a mystery.
The latest reports suggest the handset will sport a 1080p HD display, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera with Android Jelly Bean running the show.
