Display and layout

The Nubia Z17 MiniS is a beautiful, elegant terminal with a premium feel to the eye. This is due to its construction materials, the same, for example, that iPhone uses in its terminals. We found a very effective combination of metal and glass. The rear panel is constructed of 3D effect glass that conforms to the surface of the palm of the hand, providing a good grip. Between the rear panel and the screen we find the metallic material, which we can find in several colors: Golden Black, Dark Blue and what they have called 'Aegean Blue'. The Nubia Z17 Mini is also characterized by those distinguished red piping around the dual sensor of the main camera and the home button on the front.

Its dimensions are 147.5 x 71.2 x 7.6 millimeters and it has a weight of 155 grams. As for the screen, we see a panel of 5.2 megapixels and Full HD resolution . It is not as big as other 5.5 terminals but it is still a highly recommended terminal for the consumption of multimedia content.


The highlight of the Nubia Z17 MiniS: 4 cameras arranged in two sensors for the main camera and another two for the selfie camera. While on the back we find a monochrome sensor and another 13 megapixel RGB, we see how Nubia has put more detail in the double selfie camera. Here we find a 16 megapixel sensor with a larger focal aperture. It is accompanied by a second 5 megapixel sensor to achieve the long-awaited out-of-focus portrait effect that users like so much.

Processor, memory and storage

The Nubia Z17 MiniS does not have the latest processor on the market, but with the Snapdragon 653 you are not likely to miss it. Maybe it may show some lageos when playing a game that requires a higher processor. This eight-core processor is accompanied by a gigantic 6 GB RAM and no less than 64 GB of internal storage. If it falls short, insert a 256GB microSD card. Nothing to object to these striking figures, which accompany an inexpensive terminal, on the other hand.

Autonomy and operating system

The battery of this Nubia Z17 MiniS is 3,200 mAh . The brand ensures that we can reach a day and a half of autonomy, but these figures must be taken with caution. As soon as we open the mobile box and turn it on, we will see that the installed operating system is Android 7.1 Nougat.


  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac, dual band.
  • NFC.
  • Fingerprint sensor.
  • Bluetooth 4.1.
  • FM Radio.
  • USB Type C that provides fast charging to the equipment.
  • There is no headphone connection.

This terminal can be purchased from October 19 for a price of $ 305 to change (about 260 euros).
