When it comes to entry-level smartphones, the biggest problem is usually storage. For less than RM500, most budget devices come with a paltry 16GB of storage and if you’re lucky, some might come with 32GB. If you’re in the market for an affordable device that has more storage to keep your photos, apps and videos, here’s an interesting deal for a Nubia smartphone.
The nice thing about the futuristic tech you find of flagship smartphones is that there’s often a good chance that they will likely trickle down. given time, to more affordable handsets. We’ve already seen the wildly popular slim bezel screens make their way to mid-range devices and sure those do come with watered down specs but the experience is broadly similar for a sizable price cut.
But what if you’re one who doesn’t want the cut in performance. What if you want the best flagship specs you can get on a smartphone, including that nice new screen, at much lower price? Nubia‘s got you covered with their new Z17S smartphone.
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.
ZTE’s sub-brand, nubia, is increasingly making inroads into the Malaysian market. After introducing its selfie-centric M2 series, nubia is finally bringing its flagship model locally with the Nubia Z11. It has top of the line specs with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, and you can get it for under RM2,000.
If we take at look at smartphone shipment numbers, having a selfie-centric smartphone seems to be a briliant idea. The OPPO R9s is currently the most popular Android smartphone and it is clear that both OPPO and vivo are doing well worldwide because of their popular camera/selfie focused models.
Nubia, ZTE’s independent brand wants to cash in the selfie craze by introducing two new models in Malaysia. What’s even interesting is that both are quite similar in hardware and pricing as their key competitors.
