ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia will bring a premium 6GB variant of its Z17 Mini to India. The new variant will feature 128GB of inbuilt storage and will also be upgraded in terms of hardware. It will also be offered in a new color – Aurora Blue.
Nubia launched the Z17 Mini back in India back in June in a single variant with 4GB of RAM with 64GB of inbuilt storage. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 652 processor.
While the new 6GB variant of the Z17 Mini features a slightly better Snapdragon 653 processor. However, the rest of the specs of the device remain the same. Nubia has not revealed the pricing and exact launch date yet.
Nubia Z17 Mini Specifications
The Z17 Mini comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The smartphone runs Nubia UI 4.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
As mentioned already, the 6GB variant will be powered by a more efficient octa-core Snapdragon 653 processor. The new variant will feature 128GB internal storage, which will be further expandable via microSD card up to 200GB.
One of the main highlights of the Nubia Z17 Mini is its dual rear camera setup. The device features a pair of 13-megapixel Sony sensors (Monochrome + RGB) with f/2.2 aperture. The rear camera also features OIS, PDAF, NeoVision 6.0, dual LED flash. At the front, it sports a 16-megapixel camera with 80-degree wide-angle lens and f/2.0 aperture.
Connectivity options it offers are Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, GPS, GLONASS, and USB Type-C port. The phone packs a 2950mAh battery with fast charge support. The device also features a fingerprint sensor on the back.
Since the 4GB RAM variant of the smartphone was launched at a price of Rs 19,999. So, it’s very obvious that upgraded version of the Z17 Mini would surely come at a good price tag. Also, we might expect the price cut to the existing 4GB variant.
