Chinese phone maker Nubia is set to launch the Z11, an Android smartphone featuring a bezel-less design, this September. The handset will be available in 14 countries including the United States, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Thailand and India.
Nubia, which is a brand owned by ZTE, first announced the Z11 back in June and was made available in China in July. The brand isn’t that well-known in the West, but with the global launch of the handset, that’s about to change.
The Nubia Z11 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD 1080p IPS display and it looks like it doesn’t have any bezels on either sides. It has a screen-to-body ratio of 81 percent, making it look like users are just holding a screen.
Under the hood, the Nubia Z11 is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. If that’s not enough, users can also pick up the 128GB model which comes with 6GB of RAM. Either way, users will still be able to expand storage via microSD.
In terms of photography, the Nubia Z11 comes with a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera which uses a Sony IMX298 sensor. The camera features an aperture of f/2.0, software image stabilization and phase detection autofocus, according to Engadget.
Accompanying the 16-megapixel camera on the back is a fingerprint sensor. The Nubia Z11 also comes with USB Type-C and a 3,000 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 30 support. It runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Nubia UI 4.0 running on top.
In the audio department, Nubia didn’t skimp out on the Z11. The device comes with an AK4376 sound chip and hardware to provide HiFi+ audio quality. The speakers also have Dolby Atmos Surround Sound support.
The Nubia Z11 will be available in starting in September and will sell for €499 or around $557 for the standard silver and grey models. There’s also a special black gold color option which costs €599 or around $668. The handset will be available from Nubia’s website, Amazon, eBay and other online retailers, according to The Verge.
