As teased by the brand ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo last week, ZTE-owned Nubia has announced a new smartphone named Nubia Z17 mini. The USP of the smartphone is the presence of the dual rear camera system which has started to become more mainstream as the time is passing. It also boasts of featuring up to 6GB RAM onboard.
To start with, the new Nubia Z17 mini features dual 13MP cameras with a f/2.2 aperture on the back. One of them is the monochromatic sensor for clicking Black and White shots and another one is the RGB sensor for capturing colors. It then merges shots clicked by both sensors which is expected to deliver a better output and hopefully help you get more Instagram likes.
As for rest of specifications, it sports a 5.2-inch Full HD display with 2.5D curved glass. It has been launched in two variants with Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 and Snapdragon 653 processors coupled with 4GB and 6GB RAM respectively. The phone has a 16MP front shooter with f/2.0 aperture and 80-degree wide-angle lens. It offers 64GB internal storage with support for microSD cards.
The whole package is powered by a 2950mAh battery with fast charging compatibility. It will be running Nubia's Nubia UI 4.0 based on Android Marshmallow v6.0 out of the box. Other features include a fingerprint scanner, VoLTE support, Bluetooth 4.1, and NFC support.
Nubia has priced the SD652/4GB RAM and SD653/6GB RAM variant at 1699 Yuan (about $246) and 1999 Yuan (about $289) respectively. The phone is currently up for preorders and is available in Elegant Black, Black with Gold, Champagne Gold, and Red color options.
