Nubia Z17 Smartphone Appears Surprisingly on Official Site; Features Vertical Dual Rear Cameras and 3 Colors
The Nubia Z17 smartphone has surfaced on the official website of the Shenzhen-based ZTE sub-brand mobile company Nubia. It was apparently published accidentally and has since been taken down.
However, a Weibo user was able to grab a screenshot before it was removed. The authenticity of the leaked image of the Nubia Z17 remains up for debate, however.

As seen in the leaked image, the Nubia Z17 will have a dual-edge curved display with no side bezels seen. It will come in three color options; frosted gray, champagne gold, and aurora blue. The blue and gold variants also appeared in leaked images recently.
The Nubia Z17 is unlike the ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini, which sports horizontally arranged dual rear cameras and was launched last month. Its dual rear camera setup (23-megapixel and 12-megapixel) will be designed vertically with a fingerprint scanner embedded right in the middle. It is expected to sport a 16-megapixel camera on the front.
The Nubia Z17 will come in two RAM variants in China. The first model unit will have 6GB and the second model unit 8GB. Both will feature 128GB of internal storage.
The Nubia Z17 was spotted on a benchmarking website Geekbench last week with the model number of NX563J. According to the listing, it will sport an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset clocked at a speed of 1.9 GHz.
The Nubia Z17 will run on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 support. It has a similar 4GB of RAM and will be announced on June 1 for regions outside China.
