Cristiano Ronaldo, arguably one of the biggest stars in the history of football, has been spotted with the Nubia Z17 Mini. The footballing icon posted an image of himself posing with the yet-to-be announced Nubia Z17 Mini on his Instagram account. According to the caption, he recently did a photo shoot with Nubia in a bid to promote the device and is impressed by the dual-camera setup on the rear of the smartphone. The Real Madrid player also mentioned that he is looking forward to the launch of the device on April 6th.
Ronaldo has been the image for Nubia smartphones for quite a while now, the footballer is basically Nubia's spokesperson. However, this is likely the first time that Ronaldo has teased a new smartphone (and it's obvious which one) just days before the launch. The device held in Ronaldo's hand confirms that it is indeed the upcoming Nubia Z17 Mini, and this can be seen from the placement of the fingerprint scanner on its rear, along with the dual-camera setup. The design is very much alike to the images found on the TENAA listing a few days back. As far as specs are concerned, the device is expected to be equipped with a 5.2-inch 1080p display. Under the hood, it will be powered by a chipset which is clocked at 1.8GHz, though the model of the processor is unknown at the moment. However, rumors have suggested that the device could be powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 or the Snapdragon 653 processor.
Memory wise, the Nubia Z17 Mini will likely come with 4GB of RAM coupled with 64GB of internal storage which will most likely be expandable via a microSD card. The dual-camera smartphone is expected to sport two 13-megapixel shooters on its rear, while selfies will be handled by a 16-megapixel camera. Keeping the lights on is a decently sized 2,930mAh non-removable battery. TENAA's listing also suggests that the device will be running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and not Android 7.0 Nougat. This 4G LTE enabled device is expected to be priced between 1,499 Yuan ($217) and 1,799 Yuan ($260). The launch of the Nubia Z17 Mini will be taking place in China on April 6th.
