    "Today, at a press event in Beijing, China, Nubia has launched its latest smartphone — Nubia Z17S, along with Nubia Z17 MiniS.

    The Nubia Z17S comes with a bezel-less full-screen display, which has become a norm these days. Almost every company is now coming out with a bezel-less smartphone — a trend that started with Xiaomi Mi MIX.


    It comes with a 5.73-inch display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2040 pixels and pixel density of 403ppi. The screen has an aspect ratio of about 17:9 and sports DCI-P3 wide colour gamut, with colour saturation of 96 percent.

    There is a layer of Gorilla Glass 4 on top of the display for added protection. To make space for the bigger display, the company’s trademark red-circled home button has been removed.

    The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm‘s flagship Snapdragon 835 octa-core 64-bit processor, clocked at 2.45GHz along with Adreno 540 GPU. The device is available in two variants — one with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while other with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.

    The Nubia Z17S comes with a dual camera setup at the back. It has a 12-megapixel primary camera and a 23-megapixel auxiliary camera. It has 1.4-micron pixels, f/1.8 aperture, and 6P optical lens. The camera supports 2X optical zoom and 10X digital zoom. It comes with additional features such as 3D noise reduction. It comes with a layer of sapphire protection lens.


    The camera comes with the all-new NeoVision 7.0 image engine. It has AI Portrait mode — an algorithm for personality learning for additional features such as face recognition, edge processing, 3D beauty, level enhancement, among others.

    On the front, it features a 5-megapixel dual camera setup with an 80-degrees wide angle lens and f/2.2 aperture. It also supports background blur and beauty mode along with multi-effect filter.

    The phone supports 4G LTE along with the usual set of connectivity options, which includes Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS. There is one port on the device — USB Type C"

    The screen to body ratio is 90.36%.

    Honestly, I wish I had access to the same Orchid Grey that the S line has. I like how my phone looks don't get me wrong but I wish it was more purple. I also wish all the colors were available in the states. I know people who i got to switch to the Note 8 would like to have the Deep Sea Blue as an option or even the Gold.

    We had Midnight Black, Orchid Grey and Gold Don here, but I prefer Black.

    I nearly did pick Orchid Grey as it is truly stunning, but I love the 'Murdered Out' look of the Midnight Black

    I got the Orchid Gray, but would have perferred the Deep Sea Blue personally. Not a big deal though.

    On the OP, the ratio looks to be me to be almost the same as the Note 8.

    But why is nowadays nearly every smartphone manufacturer saying it's smartphone would be bezelless?
    Bezelless would mean a screen to body ratio 100%

    It's just marketing, like retina display, truetone, etc. When it's truly bezelless oems will come up with a new, fancy term.
