At the end of March, ZTE has unveiled two devices as part of their Nubia Z9 lineup of devices, the Nubia Z9 Mini and Z9 Max. The company’s flagship, Nubia Z9, has arrived earlier this month however. The Nubia Z9 is the most interesting out of the bunch here, this ‘bezel-less’ handset has a number of unique functions and it looks rather sleek considering the ‘bezel-less’ design. We’ve already covered that handset at length though, and are not here to talk about that, but about the Nubia Z9 Mini which was just launched in India.

The Nubia Z9 Mini is made out of metal, well, a metal frame which is stuck between two sheets of glass that is. This handset features a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) OGS display on the front, and on top of it, you’ll find Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core SoC which ships with an Adreno 405 GPU for graphics. The Nubia Z9 Mini sports 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card up to 128GB), and a 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package. The 16-megapixel shooter (Sony’s IMX234 Exmor R sensor, f/2.0 aperture, 6P lens) is located on the back of this handset and flanked by an LED flash. The 8-megapixel snapper (Sony’s IMX179 Exmor R BSI sensor, 80-degree wide-viewing angle) is available on the front side of this device. This is a dual-SIM handset which offers 4G LTE connectivity, and Bluetooth 4.0 is also available. Android 5.0 Lollipop comes pre-installed here with ZTE’s Nubia UI 2.8 on top of it. The Nubia Z9 Mini measures 141.3 x 69.8 x 8.1mm and weighs 145 grams.

The Nubia Z9 Mini will ship in Black color option only and is priced at Rs. 16,999 ($267) in this Asian country. The device will be available exclusively through Amazon.in starting today, so if you’re interested, you might want to visit the source link down below. The Nubia Z9 Mini is about $20-30 more expensive in India than in its homeland, China. That’s not that big of a difference, but it’s up for you to decide whether it’s worth it or not.
