Well no band 71 means no money from me. I really like this device too.
I'm not 100% sure on this, but I believe ZTE still holds a minority stake in Nubia.
Nubia is it's own company. ZTE has reduced it's stakehold in it. They still own Nubia stock (49.9%), but Nubia is 100% in control of products, product development, marking, etc.....
Since ZTE owns less than 50%, technically they are no longer considered a subsidiary.
Anyways, this device wasn't designed with the USA market in mind. It's very interesting they would try to release it here without the full band support people would want. And the unlocked device market is tough to crack here, so I don't really expect it to do very well as other OEMs have tried. You "have to" get into a carrier store here. As One Plus has gotten.
I don't particularly like the idea that you need to be in bed with the carriers to be successful in the USA, but that's just the way it is for now.
Looks like the global version has all the bands you could want:
ZTE Blade V10 coming in hot from the FCC!
@hollap, looks like ZTE is on the move this year. I keep watching for the new Axon for the USA.
