The ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini debuted this month, in a localized launch, but now it seems to be headed towards the international market, as it just received the FCC blessing. A version of it codenamed NX529J just passed the testing phase of the US authority.
It’s been certified for Bluetooth and WiFi usage, plus FDD-LTE and WCDMA. The handset came to life on April 19th, packing a 2.5D 5 inch Full HD screen, plus an octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor and Android 5.1 as the OS, with the new Nubia UI 3.9.6 on top. There’s a 16 megapixel back camera included, with PDAF and an 8 MP front facing shooter.
At the back find a variety of covers, that mimic wood, metal and all sorts of textures and also at the back there’s a fingerprint scanner. We’ve got 4G LTE support here, plus VoLTE and hybrid dual SIM slots. The battery on the Nubia Z11 Mini is a 2800 mAh unit. The price is very affordable at $231 and the device has been selling in China for 5 days.
Expect an US launch this summer.
