Having recently launched at Mobile World Congress 2017, ZTE Nubia N11 Lite is set to be a smartphone of choice for entry-level users.

An entry-level smartphone would mean that it is affordably priced. Nubia N11 Lite that is expected to be released in March 2017, is set to be just that.

Let’s see what the Nubia N11 Lite has to offer as per below:

  • 5.5-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixels or ~267 ppi pixel density
  • Metal body
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • MediaTek MT673 chipset, Quad-core processor and 2GB RAM
  • 8MP primary camera with autofocus and dual-LED flash
  • 5MP secondary camera with LED flash
  • 16GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 256GB maximum
  • Android Marshmallow 6.0
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • March 2017 release date

After scrutinising through the specs above, we can safely say that Nubia N1 Lite isn’t necessarily what we thought of a totally entry level smartphone.

Yes, it may be sporting a 5.5-inch IPS screen with just a High Definition resolution, but the Nubia N1 Lite comes equipped with a solid metal body. Not only that, there’s also a fingerprint sensor which is said to allow you to unlock the device in just 0.3 seconds. How many smartphones that you know of have these two features for an entry level device eh?

Under the hood of the Nubia N11 Lite will be the decent MT673 chipset, a quad-core processor with an unknown speed and just 2GB RAM. With this kind of setup, you know that there’s a good chance that you can only use it for the basic stuff – web browsing, social media and very little gaming.

In terms of camera, there’s the 8MP-5MP camera setup that is available. With both cameras having an LED flash, all your photos are set to look bright as a day – even under the dark of night.

Storage-wise, there’s 16GB of internal storage awaits you. Surely that won’t be enough, which is why it comes with a microSD expansion slot that can easily add in up to 256GB of storage.

It is little wonder that the Chinese company decided to release the N11 Lite with the dated Android Marshmallow 6.0 OS. You will miss out on the new features and enhancements that the latest Nougat 7.0 OS brings to the table.

Last but not least, there’s a pretty good 3000 mAh battery supplying the necessary juice to the smartphone. With the kind of specs that the N11 Lite is having, surely it can easily last you for a day without any hiccups.

ZTE Nubia N1 Lite tries hard to offer an entry-level smartphone that you can be proud of. It is one of those stylish-looking smartphones that hides what underneath it, and that’s something you don’t normally find in the market these days. The metal body and fingerprint sensor are excellent additions to an otherwise boring device.

The ZTE Nubia N1 Lite will most likely be released in March 2017 although there’s no mention of its price just yet. It will only be available in Black colour.
