The new Nubia Z17S comes with a 5.73” Full HD+ screen of 18:9 ratio. The emblematic red circle that was the home button is now implemented in the UI to make way for the taller display.
The phone runs on a Snapdragon 835 chipset, paired with either 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage or 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The OS is Android Nougat with the latest Nubia UI 5.1 on top.
One change that nubia made in the Z17S, compared to the the Z17 is the cameras. While the main setup remains unchanged with the 12 MP + 23 MP combo, there are now two cameras on the front, both featuring 5 MP sensors. There is Gorilla Glass on top, and the body is made of aviation-grade aluminum alloy.
The 3,100 mAh battery supports 26W fast charging and ZTE promises 50% charge in 25 minutes.
Samsung Galaxy S8+
As the name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a larger version of the Galaxy S8, equipped with an even bigger, 6.2-inch Infinity display stretching from edge to edge. The screen is also taller, allowing the phone to remain somewhat manageable in the hand despite the extra-large screen area. To make room for the taller screen, however, Samsung has replaced the physical buttons with on-screen ones, while the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back. In terms of software and hardware, the Galaxy S8+ is nearly identical to the S8, powered by the fast and efficient Snapdragon 835 SoC. But the additional space has allowed Samsung to fit in a bigger, 3500mAh battery. And the camera is similar to the 12MP unit found on the Galaxy S7, but improved software processing allows it to create better photos by stitching together the best portions of multiple frames.
