Nubia Z17S Hands On and Photo Gallery

Pricing and availability

Nubia Z17S launched with 5.73-inch bezel-less display, 8GB RAM and four cameras

ZTE sub-brand Nubia has expanded its product portfolio with the launch of two new camera-centric smartphones, namely, Nubia Z17S and Z17 miniS in the Chinese market.

On the software side of things, the Nubia Z17 miniS comes running Android Nougat out of the box with the company's custom skin Nubia UI 5.1 on top.

Even though that sound a bit ridiculous, but I guess everyone is entitled to their own perspectives, even if they are irrational. Both the new smartphones come equipped with four cameras-two rear-facing sensors and two front-facing sensors, which are also their main highlight. The smartphone comes with 6GB/8GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB of internal storage with no support for SD card expansion. The Nubia Z17S is company's flagship smartphone, whereas the Nubia Z17 miniS is the successor of Z17 mini, which was launched earlier this year. The latest Nubia smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 octa-core chip. Out of the two sensors used for the phone's primary camera setup, the 12-megapixel sensor (Sony IMX362) has an aperture of f/1.8 and an individual pixel size of 1.4µm.

Starting with the Nubia Z17S, the handset comes with a 5.73-inch Full HD+ display with a screen resolution 2040×1080 pixels and offers 96 percent NTSC colour gamut. There is a fingerprint sensor on the back.

Let's start with the most affordable of the lot, the Nubia Z17 miniS.

Coming to the camera department, the Nubia Z17 miniS features a dual camera setup at both the front and the back. The smartphone will be available for pre-orders in China from today and official sale begins from October 19. The handset runs on Nubia UI 5.0 on top of Android 7.1 Nougat.

The Nubia Z17 miniS will be available in Black Gold and Deep Blue colors and is priced at CNY 1,999.

The mid-range Nubia Z17 miniS has the following dimensions: 147.5 x 71.2 x 7.6 mm and weighs 155 grams. Besides, the Nubia Z17 miniS comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The front cameras are 16MP and 5MP in configuration. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, 3G and 4G.
