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.
Micro USB it appears.
Another new one:
All these low to medium end phones low. Where is the next Flagship coming to North America. LOL
@rasalon These devices have always been the bread and butter for ZTE. I'm hopeful we will see a more premium device this year.
I will second that @ sshasan 😊
@sshasan So what you are saying is, you know as much or as less knowledge than the rest of us here on the USA ZTE Forum. Meaning you have 0 inside track. Bummer. I thought I could squeeze some inside info about some future Flagship Device. LOL. 😀 Speaking of ZTE Flagship Devices in General. The Axon 10 has an official Launch date in China. Sometime in Mid May (I forgot the exact Date) Good for them. 5G tests on 5G network on the Axon 10 in China look impressive BTW.
I like seeing band 71 for sure. Looks like they made something exclusive to Metro and or T-Mobile:
Or maybe CC is Consumer Cellular?
Nubia Red Magic! No band 71. Dammit!
Two new ZTE phones have been spotted going through the FCC. One appears to be a mid-range device while the other appears to be an entry-level one. See links below:
The A5 2020 looks like my kinda device. I'm currently sporting a Moto G7 Power simply because of the battery. This one checks the battery, but unfortunately it looks as though there is no band 12 or no band 71 which prevents me from wanting to buy it since I am a T-Mobile customer. If it's even released in the US that is.
If a company is going to go through the process of approving a phone with the FCC, I would imagine it would be released here in the US. Otherwise, why go through all the effort? But what do I know?
Anyways, here's some more info that popped up today regarding the possibly upcoming Blade 20: https://www.gsmarena.com/zte_blade_v7s_to_arrive_on_october_18_blade_v20_expected_to_tag_along-news-39606.php
A Nubia device coming to the US? Wow🤩
ya that is going to be an interesting device
