Today, the Nubia Z18 Mini has been finally launched in China. It comes with some formidable specs at a great price point. Apart from the regular version it has also been launched in a Limited Provence Edition. Let’s check out what the Z18 Mini brings to the table.
Design and Specifications
Measuring 148 x 70.6 x 7.6mm in size and 153 grams in weight,the Z18 Mini has a glossy metal body. The design is minimalistic with a 5.7-inch FHD+ display with a 2160 X 1080p resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio up front. Other than the display, an 8MP f/2.0 camera, and the earpiece, the front is barren of any other components. And surprisingly,it does not have a notch! Not exactly something great or different, but still different from what every other phonemaker is doing. It does happen to have facial recognition too, which Nubia claims unlocks the phone in seconds.
Under the hood lies the Snapdragon 660 clocked at 2.2GHz coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. The Limited Provence Edition comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. A curved metal back plate covers the rear of the phone where a dual camera setup of a 13MP primary and 5MP secondary camera sits. Powering the Z18 Mini is a 3450mAh battery and Android 8.1. Connectivity includes the usual options, 4G VoLTE, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS/GLONASS, USB type-C and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
