ZTE brand Nubia on Thursday launched its latest Z series smartphone, the Nubia Z17 mini, at an event in China. The smartphone has been priced starting at CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 16,000) for the 4GB RAM variant and CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 18,800) for the 6GB RAM option. The handset will be available in a variety of colours including Elegant Black, Black with Gold, Champagne Gold and Red and will go on sale from April 13. There’s no word yet as to when the smartphone will make it to the Indian market.

The Nubia Z17 mini sports a metal unibody design with extremely thin bezels on the left and right side and a slim form factor at 7.45mm. The back features a dual camera setup on the top left side and a fingerprint sensor centered just above the Nubia logo. The red circular haptic Home Button resides on the front.

Powering the phone is an octa-core Snapdragon 652 or 653 processor (depending on the memory variant) with Adreno 510 GPU and 4GB or 6GB of RAM.

Meanwhile the front gets a 16-megapixel camera with 80-degree wide-angle lens for selfie lovers.
