Chinese consumer electronics giant ZTE has officially launched its subsidiary smartphone firm, Nubia, in India. 

The company has opened Nubia's official India page. To build fan base in the subcontinent, they have created the region-specific social network accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

In Nubia's India page, the company has posted a promo image that shows a black-box; and the caption reads: "NOW, THERE IS NO LIMIT TO WHAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE. COMING SOON." This hints a new device will be launched in India soon.

If sources of AndroidOS.in are to be believed, ZTE is expected to release flagship compact smartphone Nubia Z9 Mini in the subcontinent.

Nubia Z9 Mini was originally unveiled along with Z9 Max in China in March. It features metallic- frame on the edges, but has sturdy plastic case on the back side.

It sports 5.0-inch full HD display and runs on the Snapdragon 615 Octa-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB in-built memory, and a 2900 mAh battery.
