As we enter the second half of 2017, we’re beginning to see more flagship Android handsets equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset. The latest to join the list is Chinese phone maker ZTE, with its Nubia Z17.

The second Chinese company to have a Snapdragon 835 SoC in its phone (the first is Xiaomi with the Mi 6), the Nubia Z17 has, on paper, everything you’d want on a high-end Android phone launched in mid-2017.

Here’s a list of its key specs:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
  • 5.5-inch full HD display
  • 23MP (F2.0) + 12MP (F1.8) dual-rear camera setup
  • 16MP, F2.0 front-facing camera
  • Up to 128GB internal storage, 8GB RAM
  • Supports Dolby Atmos
  • IP67 certified
  • NFC, USB-C, IR blaster
  • 3,200mAh battery, supports Quick Charge 4+
  • Up to 2.4-day use on a single charge
  • Nubia UI 5.0 (on top of Android 7.1)

Interestingly, the Nubia Z17 supports Quick Charge 4+, the faster yet more efficient upgrade of the also-very-new Quick Charge 4 fast charging tech that’s hardly on any device yet. The IR blaster is also a nice inclusion, for those who like their phone to double as a remote control.

The ZTE Nubia Z17 is available in black/gold, white/gold, black, blue, and red color options. The starting price of 2,799 CNY (~S$569) will only net you 64GB storage and 6GB RAM; the 128GB storage/8GB RAM flagship of all flagships model is priced at 3,999 CNY (~S$812).
