Nubia, the Chinese smartphone brand is celebrating its fourth anniversary today. Just like its parent company ZTE, Nubia also sells its smartphones in most of the western markets. Earlier this year, the company launched the Nubia Z11, Z11 Max, and Z11 Mini smartphones as the successors to the last year’s Nubia Z9 smartphones. The global launch of the flagship Nubia Z11 was held at the IFA 2016 in Berlin. Today, at its anniversary event, the company unveiled the new smartphone called Nubia Z11 Mini S. The device was earlier listed on TENAA where we got the most of its details along with the first look.
The Nubia Z11 Mini S comes with an Aluminum build body with curved antenna bands over the top and bottom edges. The Meizu Pro 6 is the first smartphone to feature similar antenna design and the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus also came with the same curved design. On the back of the device, we can find the circular fingerprint sensor. The Nubia Z11 Mini came with a similar design but sports glass on the rear instead of metal. On the front is a 5.2-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution display with a 2.5D glass laid on top. There is bezel-less display as seen on the flagship Nubia Z11.
Under the hood, it is powered by Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz and coupled with Adreno 506 GPU. It has 4GB of RAM and comes in two variants with 64Gba nd 128GB storage options. There is also a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion upto 200GB. It will be available in Champagne, Khaki, and Black Gold colors. The device is backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery and with NeoPower 2.0 power management, it can easily last more a than a day of mixed usage. The earlier launched Nubia Z11 Mini came with a slightly smaller 2,800mAh battery.
Coming to the USP of this new device, there is a 23MP rear camera with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture, and Sapphire lens. For selfies, Nubia Z11 Mini S offers a 13MP front camera with PDAF, f/2.2 aperture, and 5P lens. It supports dual SIM dual standby with the help of hybrid SIM slot where the user can opt for MicroSD card instead of the second SIM. The Nubia Z11 Mini S also offers 4G VoLTE connectivity on both the SIMs. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based Nubia UI 4.0.
