Yet another Chinese smartphone manufacturer has launched a phone with 6GB of RAM. The latest brand to bite the dust is ZTE. The ZTE Nubia Z11 was announced in China and will go on sale from July 6 in the country. There is no word on its global availability or of a possible India launch.
The phone will come in two variants: one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and the other with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM. The 4GB RAM variant is priced at CNY 2,499, which is roughly around Rs. 25,000, and the 6GB RAM variant will cost you CNY 3,499 (approximately Rs. 35,000). Both the variants of the phone support external microSD cards up to 200GB of storage capacity.
Interestingly, there is also a special edition Christiano Ronaldo variant of the phone with his signature on the rear. This limited edition phone will be available in Obsidian Gold colour.
The phone has a 5.5-inch 2.5D curved Full-HD (1080p) display with a layer of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 on top of it. Under-the-hood is a quad-core 2.15GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, with Adreno 530 GPU for graphics. It runs the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS but there is a layer of Nubia UI 4.0 skin on top of it. The Nubia Z11 comes with dual-SIM capability but one of the slots also doubles up as the memory card slot. The 16-megapixel primary camera on the rear comes with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) features, and there is also an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. The fingerprint scanner sits on the rear of the device.
The phone has a 3000mAh battery with support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology and also packs in Dolby Atmos for audio.
