Nubia Z17 Variant with 8GB RAM and 64GB Storage May Soon Become a Reality

Nubia, the sub-brand of the Chinese electronics giant ZTE, has been making steady inroads into the international market with some quality offerings. It had launched the Nubia Z17 in June and the device had been one of the most powerful ones manufactured by this particular company. Now, it seems that a new variant of the Nubia Z17 is on offer.

This new variant of the Z17 will have 8GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. This will be a departure from the models currently available: one with 6GB of RAM and with 64GB or 128GB of internal or native memory, while the more premium option comes with 8GB RAM and with 128GB of internal memory. The new variant seems to be a bridge between the two available variants and will be a high-end offering. It was first spotted on TENAA and was reported by The Leaker. This might indicate that the new model may release soon as evidenced earlier.

The new Nubia Z17 variant will arrive in colors like Aurora Blue, Black Gold, Obsidian Black, Solar Gold as well as Flame Red. Like all Nubia devices, the Z17 will have a 5.5-inch bezel-less Full HD display which will boast of a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. At the heart of this device will be the latest and the most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. This SD 835 SoC will work in tandem with the Adreno 540 GPU. Available variants will be 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and the recent addition with 8GB of RAM including 64GB of storage.

As far as the cameras and optics are concerned, the Nubia Z17 will have a dual rear camera setup which will have one 23-megapixel sensor and another 12-megapixel sensor. The 23MP camera will have a f/2.0 aperture, and the smaller sensor with 12MP includes a ½.55 inch CMOS sensor besides dual-tone LED flash. Out front, there is a 16MP snapper for good selfies and video calling.

As far as the price point of the new Nubia Z17 variant is concerned, it will be somewhere between Yuan 3,399 (or approximately Rs 33,000) and Yuan 3,999 (or approximately Rs 38,000) based on currently available models. Armed with an IR blaster, the new Nubia device certainly looks promising.
