ZTE scores 2.5 million pre-orders for the Nubia Z5S and Nubia Z5S Mini

ZTE has managed to score 2.5 million pre-orders for its newly announced Nubia Z5S and Nubia Z5S Mini smartphones. Both devices will initially be available in China, but we do expect to see them launched all around the world in early 2014.

In a press release, ZTE compares its success to the one of Xiaomi, saying that the new Nubia phones surpass previous record set by the vendor that is often referred as Apple of China. ZTE, of course, is a much bigger company and this is actually a praise for Xiaomi which doesn’t have as nearly as resources as ZTE does.

Anyway, the ZTE Nubia Z5S pricing starts at 1,999 Yuan ($329), while its Mini sibling goes for 1,499 Yuan ($246). Both phones come with 3G connectivity, though we’re certain LTE-enabled variants will be released shortly. And we’re guessing these variants will be the ones hitting the West next year…

    These two are pretty solid phones. ZTE is onto something with these kinds of devices…
