China’s major smartphone makers are gearing up for a flare of big announcements next week, andZTE is the latest OEM to send out press invites for an event that the company plans to hold on October 17.
As usual, the press invite is holding back details of what to expect from the event. But it’s easy to guess that the occasion is related to Nubia, which means we can expect to see the successor to ZTE’s sub-brandNubia Z11 Mini on Monday.
There’s not much information about what specs will be squeezed into the Nubia Z11 Mini successor or what name it will officially adopt. Probably, Nubia Z11 Mini S? We can only guess. It would be safe to assume that its camera – the main selling point of the Nubia Z11 Mini — will boast powerful specs.
The Nubia Z11 Mini’s impressive 16-megapixel camera features a Sony IMX298 sensor, phase detection autofocus capabilities, an f/2.0 aperture lens, and a 3D noise reduction technology that makes the phone great in low light.
It also supports RAW, an uncompressed image format that helps preserve the details captured by the sensor. It only makes sense, then, that ZTE will build upon the imaging features of Nubia Z11 Mini and, perhaps, wedge a dual rear camera into its successor.
