The Nubia Z11 is a smartphone with a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, up to 6GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner, USB-C port, and 64GB of storage.
In other words, it has the kind of specs you’d expect from a flagship smartphone in 2016.
But Nubia also describes the phone as a bezel-free devices, which isn’t entirely true: there are top and bottom bezels. But the glass really does seem to stretch pretty much from the left edge of the phone to the left, giving the Nubia a higher screen-to-body ratio than you’ll find on most phones.
ZTE subsidiary Nubia launched the Z11 in China earlier this summer. Now the company has announced plans to bring the phone to 14 countries around the world, including the US, UK, Germany, Italy, India, and Indonesia, just to name a few.
In Europe, Nubia will offer a standard edition model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for €499. A Black Gold Edition with 6GB of RAM will run €599. There’s no word on the US pricing yet.
Each model features a microSD card slot for up to 200GB of removable storage, a Sony IMX298 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilization and an 8MP front camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery that the company says lasts for “at least” 1.5 days of run time.
The phone also supports fast charging.
The Nubia Z11 will face plenty of competition in the marketplace… including from another ZTE phone. The company’s ZTE Axon 7 is priced at $400 and features a Snapdragon 820 processor, a 5.5 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a 20MP camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of stroage, and a 3,250 mAh battery.
