From the look of things, it seems like Nubia is getting ready to announce a new smartphone expected to be Z17. The device spotted at Geekbench listing reveals few hardware details. The device model number is NX563J and the best thing is it is running on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood.
Nubia recently unveiled Z17 Mini, that's why there are fair chances upcoming device will be unveiled as Z17. A few weeks ago when Z17 Mini passes TENAA certification, its model number was NX569J. Those who are unaware, MSM8998 is Qualcomm's Octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC clocking at 1.9GHz.
The SoC is accompanied with 4GB RAM but we can expect top of the line variant will have at least 6 gigs of RAM because Z17 Mini top tier model packed with 6GB RAM. The device is running on Android Nougat straight out of the box. As far as benchmark listing scores is a concern, the device gained 1853 points on single-core test whereas on multi-core test device managed to achieve 6379 points.
A couple of weeks ago, Nubia released a teaser of Z17 which showcase that device is featuring 5,000mAh battery and Helio's P10 SoC but the latest listing and Z17 Mini confirms that's not the case. The standard flagship can't have inferior chipset on board.
