After rumors and leaks over the course of the last couple of weeks, the ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini S (quite the mouthful) is now official. It's made of aircraft-grade aluminium to keep the weight in check - 158 grams and thin at just 7.60mm. It is a dual-SIM 4G VoLTE smartphone with a hybrid slot which uses the second nano-SIM slot to expand storage.
Under the hood you have the Snapdragon 625 and Adreno 506 GPU powering the smartphone with a 5.2-inch 1080p display which covers 85% of the NTSC color gamut with 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass protection. You have a 23MP rear camera here with Sony's IMX318 sensor, f/2.0 aperture lens, 4K Video recording and Phase Detection Autofocus. For selfies there is a 13MP front camera with Sony IMX258 sensor and 80-degree wide angle lens.
Alongwith the camera and flash on the back you will also find the round fingerprint sensor. The antenna lines have been pushed to the periphery similar to the iPhone 7 and have been made to match the color of the phone for a cleaner appearance.
There will be two storage options to choose from, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, both of which come with 4GB of RAM. Connectivity options include dual-SIM 4G VoLTE support, dual-band WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS. There is a sizeable 3000 mAh non-removable battery here as well which can be charged over the USB Type-C port of the phone. Although there was no mention of fast charging, SD625 does support QC 3.0 fast charging.
The Nubia Z11 MiniS will come in silver, gold and black color options priced at 1499 yuan ($222 / Rs. 14900) for the 64GB storage variant and 1899 yuan ($280 / Rs. 18900) for the 128GB version. It will be going on sale on October 25 in China, it is currently available on pre-order.
