ZTE’s Nubia Z17 is the first smartphone to support Quick Charge 4+ — but that’s not all it’s good for. It’s also extremely powerful, packing a Snapdragon 835 processor and a colossal 8GB of RAM.

Enclosed in the Nubia Z17’s iPhone 7 Plus-esque casing, you’ll find a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 128GB of storage, a dual rear-facing camera (23MP+12MP), a 16MP front-facing shooter and a 3,200mAh battery.

The Nubia Z17 is available in China starting today, where it can be picked up in five colors — black, blue gold, red, and black and gold — with pricing starting at CNY2,799 ($411) for the 6GB/64GB variant, and topping out at CNY3,999 ($583) for the 8GB/128GB model.

What’s so good about Quick Charge 4+?

According to Qualcomm, Quick Charge 4+ can charge a standard 3,200mAh battery to 50 percent in a mere 25 minutes, which is around 15 percent faster than its predecessor, Quick Charge 4.
