ZTE will soon launch the Nubia Z11 miniS in India by end of March this year for a price of around INR 14,000. The company has tasted a fair amount of success in China where it went official last year.
Top features of this sleek designed phablet are 4G VoLTE connectivity, 4GB RAM, Fingerprint scanner, Snapdragon 625 and OTG support.
ZTE is always careful while manufacturing their models, last month they also added another model in the Blade series called Blade A2 Plus for a price of Rs. 12,000 and the Z11 miniS is their second supply for this year.
Let’s now start our review, read on!
Design-wise, its slim and weighs just under 160 grams. The fact it has a 5.2″ full HD display, it can easily be hold with single hand.
The display too makes up to 424 pixels per inch and its a brilliantly crisp, offers great brightness as well. The screen to body ratio at 70.65% gives more space to the glassy screen. It is covered by a metal from edges to back case and even then it doesn’t weight too much is quite remarkable.
The rear snapper of 23 megapixels is awesome to say the least and that too at such a low price is treat and if you’re a photographer, loves taking snapshots then this phone is indeed made for you.
Other than the most commonly used features and modes on the back cam we also have a Phase detection, 2.0 F aperture and a spectacular image resolution of 5536 × 4152 pixels.
On the front side there is a 13 MP selfie cam with 2.2 F aperture.
It will run the Android Marshmallow v6.0 with a touch of nubia UI 4.0.
The battery is not small but also not as powerful to keep the phone running for entire day with heavy usage. The CPU and display will surely gulp a lot of battery. But thanks to the Type-C port we can quickly juice up the cell.
It is powered by a Octa-core processor clicking at 2 GHz and drives Snapdragon 625 SoC and co-powered by Adreno 506 graphic engine. Both are paired with 4-gigs of RAM.
The 64 GB of internal memory is huge and most welcome, the same can further be expanded up to 128 GB.
The VoLTE technology comes enabled with the support of all the Indian bands available. Other than that we have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS with Glonass and all other bunch of network technology.
The fingerprint scanner responds quickly and placed at the back underneath the LED flash.
Other features includes, FM radio, Loudspeaker, 3.5 mm Jack, etc.
USB On-The-Go support and the sharp display, higher RAM and a powerful SoC will bring the gaming experience at a satisfactory level but be aware of an average battery cell.
The price hasn’t been revealed but the rumors has it that it will be under Rs. 14k.
We are going with 3 out 5 star!
