Nubia Z17miniS launched, quad cameras and Snapdragon 653 in tow

There aren't a lot of better looking devices on the market.
There aren't a lot of better looking devices on the market.
From dual rear cameras to quad cameras, OEMs are beginning to get the idea that more is better. The Nubia Z17miniS is the newest device to feature that camera configuration and we can only hope it makes a difference in actual performance. Probably not, we expect.

ZTE's sub-brand, Nubia, announced the launch of its Z17miniS at an event in Shenzhen yesterday. The device is a solid upper mid-range offering and it comes with the bold design factor that Nubia has gained a reputation for.

The Nubia Z17 was launched in Q2, with it being the first Android device to feature 8 GB of RAM, and the Mini S makes for a cheaper option in the same vein. The Mini S sports a 5.2-inch FHD display, with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. It's powered by the Snapdragon 653, and features a massive 6 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 64 GB of storage, albeit without the option for a MicroSD.

Camera-wise, it uses dual 13 MP Sony IMX258 sensors, in the monochrome + RGB style, and with a F/2.2 aperture size. The selfie shooter also comes in a pair, this time with a 16 MP + 2 MP configuration. Nubia hasn't been keeping up with the competition in this department, so it'll be interesting to see how these actually pan out.

Other specifications include a front-facing fingerprint sensor, NFC support, a 3200 mAh battery, and the dire lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Mini S is available in Deep Blue, Aegean Blue, and Black Gold. It goes on sale on October 19 with a price tag of US$305.
