I guess ZTE is ready to unveil its next two Nubia smartphones, and… they cannot hide it! The two upcoming models (Nubia Z17S and Z17 Mini S) were just spotted (just for a while – but enough to get a screenshot) on Jingdong Mall.
This means that both phones will be unveiled together during the upcoming event that has been scheduled for October 12 (that’s tomorrow). In case you forgot, there were rumors hinting at a new Z17S with full screen 2.1 design, and recently a ZTE Nubia phone with model number NX589J was certified by TENAA.

What we know so far is this: the Z17S does seem to have adopted a bezel-less display, since there is no trace of the trademark red holo capacitive button on the front of the phone. It will measure 147.5 x 72.7 X 8.6 mm and will weigh a modest 170 grams. The Z17S will be available in blue and black colour variants. On the back it will pack a dual camera setup, right below which lies the fingerprint scanner. The best part about this smartphone, it has dual cameras up front too. So no need to flip your phone for portrait selfies!
It is expected to sport a 5.73-inch display, with speculations saying that it’ll be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. The listing on TENAA revealed only the 1.8GHz clock speed. But considering the fact that this is a flagship, we can expect to see top of the line hardware. It’ll sport 6GB/8GB RAM with 32GB, 64GB, 128GB storage options.
The Nubia Z17S and Z17 Mini S will see the light of day tomorrow and we expect it to come with loaded with Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box. Watch this space for more!
