ZTE brand Nubia has begun sending out invites for the launch of its new smartphone on April 6. Last week, ZTE announced three smartphones – Nubia M2, M2 Lite, and N2 despite the much anticipated Nubia Z17 mini, which was earlier reported to be revealed on March 21. It now, however, looks like Nubia Z17 mini could still be in works and is rumoured to be launched. Additionally, certification site TENAA has certified two new Nubia smartphones with model numbers NX569H and NX569J.
The media invite sent out by Nubia (via GSMArena) features a dual camera-like design with red and green hue. This strongly suggests that the Nubia’s new smartphone would sport a dual-camera setup, as seen on the recently launched Nubia M2. Besides, in a similar news TENAA certified two smartphones bearing model numbers NX569H and NX569J on March 28. According to GSMArena, the model number NX569J is tipped to bear a dual camera setup, unibody metal design, and a rear fingerprint scanner, and it may be the Nubia Z17 mini that was also rumoured to bear a dual camera setup.
According to the earlier reports, ZTE brand Nubia was rumoured to launch the Z17 mini on its March 21 event but it didn’t happen. Instead Nubia M2, M2 Lite, N2 were launched without any hints for Nubia Z17 mini. Going by the TENAA certification report, Nubia Z17 mini might get launched on April 6.
