Chinese smartphone brands are all over India. After launching the Nubia Z11 and Nubia N1 in India, the company has come out with yet another smartphone, namely, the Nubia Z11 MiniS. With the Nubia Z11 MiniS, the company is betting big on the camera department as it uses a 23MP Sony IMX318 sensor, which was also employed in the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 and Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe which are priced on the higher side.
ZTE’s sub-brand, Nubia has been launching smartphones quite frequently these days. It’s latest offering, the Z11 MiniS comes with pretty competitive specifications alongside the capable camera. The phone features a 5.2-inch Full HD display and boasts a unimetal body design, which has become a norm these days. The phone also has a fingerprint sensor placed on the rear within reach of your index finger.
At the heart of the phone, there’s a Snapdragon 625 chipset with all the eight cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The phone also has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage, which is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.
Like mentioned earlier, the Z11 MiniS comes with a 23MP rear camera with PDAF, six-piece (6P) lens, and LED flash support. To accompany the rear camera, the company has added a 13MP front-facing camera that also comes with a screen flash feature.
The Nubia Z11 MiniS comes with several connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. The phone features a USB Type-C port at the bottom and is armed with a 3000mAh battery. The Z11 MiniS is laden with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Nubia UI 4.0 on top.
The phone is priced at Rs. 16,999 and will be available exclusively on Amazon India in two color options- Khaki Grey and Moon Gold. Nubia said that the Z11 MiniS would be up for sale starting today. Going by the pricing and specifications, the Z11 MiniS will face stiff competition from the newly announced Motorola Moto G5 Plus, which also features similar specs. However, the camera performance of Z11 MiniS should be far better as it uses a better sensor than the one on Moto G5 Plus.
