Nubia Z17S, Z17 mini S officially divulge in China with cinematic display

ZTE has launched two new mobile phones in China: The Nubia Z17S and Nubia Z17 miniS which come with four cameras on board. The front panel is covered with glass Gorilla Glass, and it is the same, but already with 3D effect, closes the rear of the housing, while the frame is made of aluminum. The Nubia Z17 arrived with 6GB RAM and Snapdragon 835 processor but an 8GB RAM variant also showed up.

Nubia Z17S is a quad-camera smartphone. Apart from that, the Nubia Z17 miniS rocks a dual 16MP front camera.

The device is equipped with a 3200 mAh Li-ion non-user replaceable battery with fast charging capability via UBS type C port.

So as you can see the device is a flawless mixture of powerful specs and good hardware. The smartphone has a 5.2 inches display with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution at 424 PPI density. Besides, the Nubia Z17 miniS comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The new smartphone features dual front and rear cameras.

ZTE launched the Nubia Z17 and Z17 Lite a few months ago after being leaked several times.

On the inside, the Nubia Z17S uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, 8GB of LP-DDR4X RAM, and 128GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage. The Nubia Z17 miniS costs lesser at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 20,000). It has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top and this is a LTPS TFT display.

So, to conclude the Nubia Z17S offers state of the art features, but considering the price tag of INR 40,000, the device feels bit overpriced for a Chinese brand (OnePlus 5 with similar storage is priced at the much lower price tag). There is also a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device.

Nubia Z17S specs: Completed with a 23-megapixel Sony IMX318 sensor paired with a 12-megapixel Sony IMX362 sensor at the rear side with dual-tone LED flash and 2x optical zoom. The device has 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. It measures 147.50 x 71.20 x 7.60 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 155.00 grams. The rear of Nubia Z17 miniS features a dual 13MP camera. It runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and comes with the company's custom user interface: Nubia UI 5.1. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, 3G and 4G.
