April 20, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

ZTE has several Android smartphone lineups currently available out in the market. The company’s Nubia, Axon and Blade smartphones are quite popular, though the Nubia line is mostly being sold in China. ZTE is going to change that in the future, the company has already introduced their global nubia.com website back in January, and we do expect them to start selling Nubia devices outside of China in the near future, maybe even before the end of the year.

That being said, Nubia has introduced three smartphones back in May 2015, the Nubia Z9, Z9 Mini and Z9 Max. The Nubia Z9 Mini’s successor was announced yesterday, and it is called Nubia Z11 Mini. This announcement more than expected considering the fact that Nubia teased the arrival of this smartphone for quite some time now, and it seems like the Nubia Z11 and Z11 Max will be announced next month. Anyhow, along with the spec and availability info, we’ve shared some official images of the Nubia Z11 Mini yesterday. Well, first hands-ons started popping up in China, so we might as well take a closer look at ZTE’s all-new smartphone. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see quite a few real life Nubia Z11 Mini images which should give you a better look at the phone. The device is made out of metal, as you can see, and it features Nubia’s well-known circular capacitive home key below the display. Both the power / lock and volume rocker keys are placed on the right-hand side of the phone, and the bezel on the sides is quite minimal, almost non-existent. The Nubia Z11 Mini is a sleek looking phone, no doubt about it.

The device sports a 5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 3GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 617 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 2,800mAh battery is also a part of this package. The 16-megapixel shooter is available on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel front-facer is also included here. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed on the Nubia Z11 Mini, and on top of it, you’ll find the company’s Nubia UI 3.9. The device sports two SIM card slots, and comes in Black, White and Gold color options. The rear-facing fingerprint scanner is also included here, as you can see, and the device measures 141.9 x 70.4 x 8mm, while it weighs 138 grams. The phone costs 1,499 Yuan ($232) in China, and will be available for purchase on April 25th (first flash sale).
