If you look at smartphones today, nothing much has changed when it comes to form-factor. We’ve seen manufacturers offering thinner bezels and curved screens but they essentially candy bar designs. Unlike in the early 2000s, we do get phones in various shapes and sizes like the original Motorola Razr, V70, Flipout, Nokia 7280, 7600 and the HTC Desire Z.
For those who wants something different, ZTE will be introducing a foldable smartphone that can transform from a normal phone into a mini-tablet.
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.
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+.
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.
UPDATE: We’ve updated the guide! Now there are four brand new smartphones for you to choose from.
It’s that time of the year again. Although a whole host of new smartphones have been launched, a lot of the conversation is about the smartphones at the top end of the market. “What about those on a tight budget?”, you must be wondering, “Do tech sites even care about those of us who can’t spend a month’s salary on a device?”, you’re probably thinking.
Well, we care. So, here are some of the best phones you can get for under RM1,200.

With CES 2017 happening in a couple of days, ZTE is expected to announce a new smartphone under its Blade series. This would be their upcoming Blade V8 which replaces its current V7 series.
