“The ZTE Nubia Z7 Max is a 5.5-inch full HD phablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor”

Earlier this month, the Chinese smartphone maker ZTE confirmed that it would launch the Nubia Z7 Max phablet in India on its Facebook page. The smartphone was expected to be released in the Indian market before the festive season this year. Now, in accordance with the rumours, ZTE has sent out press invites for a launch event in New Delhi, taking place on September 2nd. The invite from the company hasn’t mentioned anything about the phone that will be launched, but there’s no reason to doubt that it won’t be the Nubia Z7 Max.
