ZTE is offering the Nubia Z17 8 GB RAM version for pre-orders
ZTE released the Nubia Z17 with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage back in June, but ZTE is already planning to offer an upgraded version with 8 GB RAM, which can be pre-ordered between August 21 -28. The Chinese manufacturer mentioned that the new 8 GB version will be immediately available for direct purchase after August 28, however, the pre-orders get included benefits such as 10,000 mAH power banks, headphones and discount vouchers.
Pre-orders can be placed on the official Nubia site or on JD.com (warning: both sites are Chinese). There are two versions: the 8 GB RAM + 64 GB internal storage for CNY3,399 (US$479) and the 8 GB RAM + 128 GB internal storage for CNY3,999 ($599).
Here is a list of the most outstanding features coming with the ZTE Nubia Z17:
• IPS LCD display with 1080p resolution
• Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core CPU
• Adreno 540 GPU
• 16 MP front camera + dual 12 MP / 23 MP back cameras
• Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) out of the box
With the new Nubia Z17 8 GB RAM version, ZTE intends to provide a serious competitor for the LG G6 and the OnePlus 5. Even though the new 8 GB RAM version is only available in China for now, ZTE will most likely release it worldwide at a later date.
