Nubia Z5 mini not your typical miniature: 4.7in, quad-core, 2GB RAM, 5MP front camera

Nubia Z5 mini not your typical miniature: 4.7in, quad-core, 2GB RAM, 5MP front cameraI scribbled some words about the rumoured Nubia Z5 mini a few weeks ago, but at that time there was nary a whisper on specs and we cynically feared another 4.3in yawn-a-thon (no offence, Samsung Galaxy S4 mini).

Turns out we were wrong, and we’re not afraid to admit it. The now-official Nubia Z5 mini actually sounds pretty freakin’ good.

Starting with the Nubia Z5 mini’s display, it weighs in at 4.7in, which is only 0.3in smaller than the full-sized Nubia Z5 announced at the end of 2012.

In the CPU department, we’ve got a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor paired with a meaty 2GB of RAM.

As for camera action, the Nubia Z5 mini has a 13MP rear camera, and – even better than its big broski – a 5MP front shooter. It's increasingly common to find multi-megapixel front cameras over in China.

Other Nubia Z5 mini specs include 16GB internal storage with a microSD slot welcoming a further 32GB, and a presumably capable 2,300mAh battery. It’ll also come in a range of colours, including white, pink, blue and yellow on the rear.

The only potential turn-off is the 720p resolution on the 4.7in display, but otherwise it sounds pretty great. And heck, it’s selling for CNY 1,888 which equates to roughly £200.

Ridiculous. 4.3-in (SGS4 Mini) and now 4.7-in = "Mini"?

Yes, since when is 4.7" mini? What does that make the iPhone 4s? Nano?

Yeah, stelph, but nobody at all buys iPhones...

Seriously, if you disregard the handful of successful phabletty things, MOST smartphones in use are 4-in and smaller.
