ZTE has introduced two new smartphones under the Nubia sub-brand in China. Nubia Z17S and Nubia Z17 miniS have four cameras and bold glass casings.
Nubia Z17S is a beautiful 5.7-inch TFT display with FullHD+ resolution (2040x1080 px), surrounded by a narrow bezel. The heart of the smartphone is an eight-core Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.45 GHz, powered by the Adreno 540 graphics chip. There are two versions of memory - 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of flash memory, but not expandable with a microSD card. The USB-C port supports OTG.
The phone supports LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi and GPS, Glonass and Beidou. The TAS2555 system with DTS is responsible for the sound, while the power supply provides a 3100 mAh battery with fast charging. On the back there is a Dual Pixel camera with IMX362 and IMX318 modules with 12 and 23 megapixels, with f/1.8 and f/2.0 lenses. The front camera has two 5-megapixel dies with f/2.2 lenses. The housing is 147.46x72.6x8.5 mm in black and navy blue, and the whole phone weighs 170 g. The price - depending on memory version - is 2999 or 3999 yuan. This translates into $ 456 and $ 608.
Nubia Z17 miniS is a weaker model. It has a classic 16: 9 screen with a diagonal of 5.2 inches and FullHD resolution. This model uses the eight-core Snapdragon 653 Pro processor with 1.4/1.9 GHz clock speed, supported by Adreno 510 graphics and 6 GB of RAM. Internal memory holds 64 GB - but again, without microSD and OTG. Communication modules are similar, we will also find the AW87319 sound system with DTS, while the battery capacity is 3200 mAh.
The main camera is based on a 13-megapixel IMX258 with f/2.2 lenses, one of which is monochrome. The front camera has 16 and 5 megapixels, with f/2.0 and f/2.2 lenses. This model has dimensions of 147.5x71.2x7.6 mm and weighs 155 g. The casing can be in three colours - black, navy and blue. Both new models work on Android 7.1 with nubia UI5.0 interface. The price is 1999 yuan, or $ 304. The blue version is a bit more expensive - 2099 yuan - $ 320.
