Smartphones have become so rampant today that getting a unique design for a smartphone seems to be asking for too much, but some smartphones like the new ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini manage to sport a design that’s stunning and sets them apart from other smartphones.

Also, it’s one thing for a smartphone to sport a beautiful design, and it’s another thing for it to pack powerful specs to back its beautiful look up. The ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini doesn’t disappoint in both areas, sporting a lineup of spectacular features like a dual camera setup at the rear.

Display & Design

The ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini sports a metal unibody design with slim side bezels. The smartphone is coated with a shiny material which makes easy to spot, and its edges are rounded for easy grip. The smartphone uses capacitive navigation buttons with a physical circular home button.

The Nubia Z17 Mini comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD (1920 * 1080) display with a pixel density of 424 PPI and Corning Gorilla glass protection.

Storage & Processor

The Z17 Mini is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 652 (for the standard edition)/Snapdragon 653 (for the high edition) processor with a clock speed of 1.9GHz. The phone’s graphics operations are managed by an Adreno 510 GPU.

The phone has 4GB of RAM capacity which is more than enough to avoid lags, and 64GB of internal storage for you to store a large number of files. You can further expand its internal storage up to 256GB using the phone’s hybrid SIM slot.

Camera

The ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini was made with selfie lovers in mind, and this is proven by the 16MP camera present on the front top bezel of the smartphone. The selfie camera has a f/2.0 aperture and 80-degree FOV, allowing you to pack more people into your selfies.

Photo geeks are also not left out, as the Nubia Z17 Mini sports dual 13MP cameras at the back. One functions for black & white photography while the second takes colour photos. Both have a f/2.2 aperture, PDAF and are accompanied by a dual LED flash so your pictures can be clear even if the environment is dark.

Battery & Connectivity

A 2950mAh Lithium-Polymer battery keeps the ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini running throughout the day (depending on your usage intensity), and its fast charging technology allows you to refill the battery very quickly after it is drained.

The phone uses a USB Type-C port which allows it to charge fast and gives it USB OTG support. It comes with a hybrid SIM slot and is compatible with a wide range of 4G LTE networks.

Software & Hardware

Below its rear camera module, a fingerprint sensor which allows you to safely and quickly unlock and secure your phone is located. The ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with ZTE’s Nubia UI 4.0 layered on top. The combination of these two means you get the latest software features for Android.
