ZTE, as promised, has unveiled its Nubia Z11 Max smartphone at an event in China. The new ZTE Nubia Z11 Max smartphone will be available to buy in China starting June 16 priced at CNY 1,999 (approximately Rs. 20,000), while there is no word on the international availability. The Chinese company had previously teased footballer Cristiano Ronaldo to be related to the new Nubia smartphone in some ways and as a result ZTE is launching a special variant of the handset.
Interested consumers in China can buy the Cristiano Ronaldo Collector's Edition of the ZTE Nubia Z11 Max which will come with an entire package including a special case, selfie stick, and wallpapers among others. The special edition smartphone sports the footballer's image and signature at the back. It will go on sale starting June 18 and will be priced at CNY 2,299 (approximately Rs. 23,000). Unfortunately, ZTE has not revealed whether the limited edition of the Nubia Z11 Max will be limited to China or will be available in other markets as well.
