After a problematic first half for ZTE, the company and its subsidiary nubia finally launched the Z18 flagship earlier this month. The phone arrived with a new understanding of their borderless ideology with curved edges on the sides and a tiny waterdrop notch on the top.
Two weeks after the unveiling the phone will finally be launched in the first flash sale at the Chinese online retailer JD.com. The price is between €350/$410 and €410/$480 for two of the color options in both memory combos.
Both the Nebula Red and the Midnight Black versions of the nubia Z18 are listed, while the Starry Night Van Gogh Edition is still unavailable. The price for the variant with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage is CNY2,799, while the more powerful version with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage is CNY3,299. Sadly, there is no microSD slot, so if you need more room for your files, you need to pull out the extra cash.
The flash sale is already live but will close by the end of the day in China. Once the event is over, we should expect a second flash sale in a week or so, when hopefully the fancier Van Gogh version will be available, even if it means shedding some more out of the wallet.
