nubia Z17 mini Limited Edition launched in India with Snapdragon 653 SoC and 6 GB RAM

Chinese manufacturer nubia, a subsidiary of ZTE, unveiled the Z17 mini back in April this year which is a toned down version of the flagship Z17. Later in June, the company launched the Z17 mini in India. Now today, the company has launched the nubia Z17 mini Limited Edition in the country with some bump in specifications.


The nubia Z17 mini is offered in Black and Gold colors, however, the limited edition comes in Aurora Blue color. However, we are not only looking at a cosmetic change here. The nubia Z17 mini Limited Edition is powered by Snapdragon 653 SoC as opposed to the Snapdragon 652 found on the regular variant.

Moreover, while the regular variant comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, the limited edition comes with 6 GB RAM and and gets the storage bumped up to 128 GB. Apart from these changes, everything else on the limited edition remains the same.

The nubia Z17 mini Limited Edition runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and flaunts uni-body metal design. It has a 5.2-inch Full-HD display with 2.5D curved glass atop. The phone also has a fingerprint scanner at the back and features DTS Surround Sound.

However, the biggest highlight here is the dual camera setup at the back which is a combination of a 13 MP RGB sensor and a 13 MP monochrome sensor. For selfies and video calls, there’s a 16 MP camera on the front which has 80-degree wide-angle lens. Lastly, the phone ships with a 2950 mAh battery which can be charged through a USB Type-C port.

We are grateful to our users and community in India for their affection and faith in nubia products. The Z17mini received tremendous response and with the limited edition nubia Z17mini, we are taking forward the legacy of great camera, great features and UI. We are confident that this product will further strengthen nubia’s name and value proposition in Indian market.” said Eric Hu, Country Head, nubia India.
