Yesterday ZTE sub-brand nubia took the wraps off its latest creation, the Z17 mini smartphone with dual rear cameras. The handset is set to go on sale in China on April 12, but ZTE is doing something pretty unusual with it.
Namely, the Z17 mini will be one of very few nubia-branded devices to actually be officially sold in markets other than China. The phone will become available in Europe, India, and other unspecified locations starting in late May.
Unfortunately more concrete details aren't available yet, but if you've been impressed by what the nubia Z17 mini offers in its metal-clad body and you don't live in China, this should be good news for you anyway. International pricing hasn't been announced either, but in China the Z17 mini starts at CNY 1,699. That currently is about €232 or INR 15,842, but keep in mind that Chinese prices never translate 1:1 in other currencies when mobile devices are offered outside of the mainland. It wouldn't be surprising to see the nubia Z17 mini priced from €249 or even €299 when it lands in Europe.
I think the reason that they don't expand is that there might be some IP/patent cases that would probably come there way. They're okay operating in China, but outside and they are open to litigation. Shame for us consumers though.
I don't know why they are holding off from releasing the blade v8 pro in Europe. It would be a great moto g5 plus rival.
interesting but you can buy plenty of 5.5" trash in other places sho st fu.
