The nubia Z17 features a premium splash-proof metal design and is practically bezel-less too. The phone flaunts a dual camera setup at the rear comprising a 23MP sensor and a 12MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture, 2x zoom, up to 10x dynamic zoom and autofocus speeds of just 0.03 seconds. For selfies, it gets a 16-megapixel wide-angle snapper with f/2.0 aperture.

As for the other specs, the nubia Z17 features a 5.5-inch full HD display. The phone comes in three RAM and storage configurations – 6GB / 64GB, 6GB / 128GB and 8GB / 128GB. Software-wise, the phone boots Android 7.1 Nougat with the new nubia UI 5.0 on top, and has a built-in NeoSmart AI engine, which learns the user’s usage patterns. The phone is powered by a 3,200mAh battery that supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0, which makes it the first device to boast this new tech. The device also has the NeoCharge 2.0 fast charging technology.
