ZTE will be launching the Nubia Z11 and Nubia N1, both of which were launched in China a few months ago, in India next Wednesday. While the specs of the handset are already out, the pricing and availability of both the devices will be revealed at the upcoming event.

In terms of specifications, the Nubia Z11 comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a 25D curved glass, a 16MP primary camera with dual LED flash, PDAF and OIS, and an 8MP selfie camera. Under the hood, it features a powerful 2.15Ghz Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options. There is also a microSD card that supports up to 200GB.

The premium smartphone sports a 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0, a fingerprint scanner at the back and a USB Type-C port for charging. In China, the 4GB RAM variant is priced at ¥2499 (roughly Rs. 25,000) while the 6GB RAM model costs ¥3499 (roughly Rs. 35,000).

As for the Nubia N1, which is a slightly toned-down version of the Nubia Z11, the specs are pretty decent as well. It is powered by a 64-bit 1.8GHz Mediatek Helio P10 octa-core SoC, 3GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage.

The Nubia N1 also sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C port like its elder sibling. The camera has a 13MP sensor with PDAF, f/2.2 aperture and LED flash at the back and an impressive 13MP sensor with beauty filters at the front for selfies. The handset is also big on battery, as it gets its power from a 5,000mAh unit.

Both phones are dual SIM enabled, support 4G LTE and VoLTE, and based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based Nubia UI 4.0. The Nubia N1 is priced at ¥1699 (roughly Rs. 17,200) in China.
