ZTE’s Nubia brand division just announced announced Nubia Z17 miniS, successor of Z17 mini that was introduced earlier this year. The phone surprises with it’s dual cameras set at the back and front.

The Nubia Z17 miniS comes in Black Gold and Deep Blue colors and is priced at 1,999 yuan ($303 / €256). There is also a Aegean blue color variant that costs 2,099 yuan (~$318 / €269). It will be available for order from today and goes on sale from October 19th in China.

The specs list reveals a mixed set of components, some good, some modest, but the phone is quite interesting and I don’t think western markets will ever the to see it.
