There are a couple of new flagship smartphones running on Snapdragon 835 processor these days. This includes the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Xiaomi Mi 6, HTC U11 and the Galaxy S8 for the US market. If you’re looking for that extra edge, ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia has a new flagship smartphone that stands out as an interesting alternative.

Meet the Nubia Z17. It’s the first Snapdragon 835 powered device to come with 8GB of RAM and it’s also the first to incorporate Qualcomm’s latest QuickCharge 4+.

The Nubia Z17 features a 5.5″ Full HD display and it runs on Qualcomm’s top of the line Snapdragon 835 processor mated to 8GB of RAM and has 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. This is the second smartphone to feature 8GB of RAM after the ZenFone AR.

For imaging, the Z17 features a dual-camera system with a 23MP + 12MP combo that has a 1.4 micron pixel size and f/1.8 aperture. It boasts a 0.03-second ultra-fast focusing speed and comes with a hybrid 2X zoom feature.

The body of the Z17 is said to be 98% metal and it’s also listed as the first outdoor waterproof Nubia phone but there’s no mention of its IP rating. The device also comes with a machine learning feature that will optimise the device according to your usage for a better experience.

Keeping the device powered is a 3,200mAh battery which is rated to last up to 2.4 days with its NeoPower 3.0 power saving system. It comes with a NeoCharge Quick Charging feature which can do 50% charge in 20 minutes. This charging technology is based on Quick Charge 4+.

According to Qualcomm, the latest Quick Charge 4+ offers the same benefits as Quick Charge 4 and it comes with better thermal management, faster charging and better safety features. It comes with Dual Charge, that comes with a second power management IC which helps to lower thermal dissipation while reducing charge times. In summary, a Quick Charge 4+ compatible device can offer up to 15% faster charging or 30% better efficiency compared to Quick Charge 4. Quick Charge 4 promises 50% charge in just 15 minutes for a device with a 2,750mAh battery.

In China, the Nubia Z17 with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is going for 3,999CNY which is about RM2,512. It will be available in 5 colours – Aurora Blue, Black Gold, Obsidian Black, Solar Gold and Flame Red.

8GB RAM is unnecessary… Better to optimize their software instead of racing to be the first in everything.


    Yes agreed to your points. Pointless for 8GB if software is not optimizing it potentials.

    On spec everything is perfect but need to see how the optimization of the software concern.

    Phone is nice and looks premium and would like to have one in hand but put off by the rate of updates and the customer services outside China.

      In he first place, their target market is China so don’t expect any service or for it to even launch officially in our noob country. In our country, only Samsung and Apple is needed.

    But then, if we talking about optimisation on android it is pretty meaningless. Android has a fatal flaw to begin with. Virtual kernel is needed. So there will be always bugs and lags no matter how optimised they claim to be


      what do u mean by virtual kernel? yes,android use vm for apps that use java n it may causing a lot of gc events to occur,but if ram is enough,gc wont interrupt too much.

      but native apps(c++)also can run in android without gc.(closer to metal) there r lots of them.

      ios has kernel,android has kernel,windows has kernel,its the main source for hardware n software to run harmoniously,to control hardware,wakelock n etc.


    whatever the case, have to give them credit for making a phone with that spec but priced under rm 3k


What else can we expect from China brands …. more cameras, more RAM, more pixels, more thin, more gimmicks …

world depends on western companies to revolutionize technology and easily win back market lost to asian brands..


    U came out which cave ?

      Mat Salleh

      Western technologies forever leading Asian, best example Google, most use search engine, Microsoft, most use OS, Apple, share 90% of global mobile phone revenue etc..not any Asian can match no match at all, Samsung wants beat Apple? Dreaming can, Chin phone want grab Apple share? Dreaming can, Asian never can match Western technologies.


        IPhone still made in China…

          Mat Salleh

          Made in China for less than 0.1% labour cost, profit is Apple. All Android and IOS belongs to US companies, Asian forever a pity nation without advance technology, shame to you.


          this person and the other f*** is clearly a troll and white a** bigots / licker. you want to talk business i can go on forever with you there !!

          that f***er aside …. it looks real nice specs wise and design coming from Nubia but like most people said better to optimize the whole phone both software and hardware then adding more gb or RAM or pixels. Those comes later as a bonus.


          lot of words coming from someone that can't even speak proper english. lol

          Mat Salleh

          Pity primitive technology, all Asian use US Android and iOS phone, without US, all Asian still living in trees, without US, all still caveman.You should thanks US for all they created makes mankind advance.


          lol, expecting ppl to care for troll like u… expect to be banned by the moderator soon. bye-2.


        Who is running Google? An Indian. Who is running Microsoft? Aslo Indian. According to Apple diversity report, 20% are Asians. Saw whatever you want, Asians are the pushing westerners forward. Even a lot of car companies are being bought over by Chinese and Indians.


Omg what a gorgeous phone with the gold and red accents.
