nubia Z17 goes official with Snapdragon 835, 8GB RAM

The highly anticipated flagship from ZTE sub-brand nubia is finally official and it's a monster. Dubbed nubia Z17 is packs top-end features that is yet to make its way to 2017's flagship device. It comes with a bezel-less screen, dual-rear cameras, Qualcomm's top end processor and a massive amount of RAM.

The nubia Z17 sports a premium build flaunting metal body and is splash proof as well. It also has very slim bezels on the left and right side, but the top and bottom have regular bezel, so don't expect the screen-to-body ratio to be impressive as Xiaomi's MIX, Samsung's Galaxy S8 or LG's G6.

It packs a massive 8GB RAM, making it the second smartphone in the world to pack that much memory after Asus' ZenFone AR.

Connectivity options on-board include NFC, 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type-C port and Infrared sensor. Unfortunately there is no 3.5mm audio jack, so you'll have to connect audio accessories through USB-C port or Bluetooth. However it comes with stereo speakers.

Software-wise it runs Android Nougat based nubia UI 5.0 and comes with built-in NeoSmart AI engine, which learns usage patterns of users to offer suggestion. It is fueled by 3200mAh battery, that supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology.
