A device going by the name “SRQ-NX501″ recently passed through the halls of the FCC, which is more than likely the ZTE Nubia Z5 NX501.
The device will work on both GSM and WCDMA networks, and is Bluetooth and WLAN capable.
The China version of the device comes with a 5-inch display, a full HD 1080p resolution, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, has 2GB RAM, features a 13MP camera, and ships with 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Rumors say that the American variant will feature an upgraded processor, the Snapdragon 800. This is quite the surprise, since in the past, Chinese devices making their way over to the United States normally have downgraded specs, including RAM and processor speed.
