Nubia, ZTE’s sub-brand has officially entered the Malaysian market. At its official launch today, nubia has also shared that their newest flagship, the nubia Z17 will be coming to Malaysia very soon. This is the world’s first Snapdragon 835 flagship smartphone with 8GB RAM and it’s also the first to feature Qualcomm’s newest QuickCharge 4+ fast charging technology.
While having the latest hardware and charging technology, it features a 5.5″ Full HD display and it also comes with 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. At the rear, it gets a dual-camera system (23MP + 12MP) and powering the device is a 3,200mAh battery.
With its NeoCharge Quick Charging feature that’s based on Quick Charge 4+, the Z17 can be charged up to 50% in just 20 minutes. While such charging speed is impressive, the Quick Charge 4+ charging brick isn’t available yet, so you might need to get the faster charger separately once it is available.
