To maximize the total screen real estate on a smartphone, manufacturers have taken different approaches. From notches to sliding cameras, this is what is commonly seen on devices. In order to achieve an edge-to-edge display, ZTE’s Nubia brand has come with an interesting new solution. Its new Nubia X doesn’t have a selfie shooter, thereby dispelling the need for a notch. Thanks to a secondary display on the back, the phone’s rear cameras could be used for taking a selfie. This is certainly a unique way to snap images, and we want to discuss the other hardware details with you too.
The Nubia X Features a Dual-Camera System at the Back Which Will Also Act Like Its Front Camera Once You Fire up the Secondary Screen
The front display of the Nubia X is 6.26 inches with a resolution of 2,280 x 1,080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The phone does have really slim top and bottom bezels, and it has managed to achieve a screen-to-body ratio of 93.6 percent without the use of a sliding camera mechanism.
The primary display is supplemented by a low-resolution 1,520 x 720 pixels 5.1-inch secondary screen that can come in handy for HD selfies. In addition to that, the display on the back also provides some advanced controls for a better gaming experience, and you can also use it for wallpapers and custom signatures. The secondary display can also be turned off, after which colorful glass back of the phone looks like that of any other phone.
The rear camera system (16MP F/1.8 + 24MP F/1.7) would enable you to take better selfies and as per Nubia, the portrait mode of the camera is backed by AI to provide the right kind of bokeh and beautification effects. The company has also applied its software-based three-level blue light filter which will prompt you to flip the side at bedtime for eyesight protection and improved sleep quality.
The company thinks that the phone’s 3,800mAh battery and the NeoPower 3.0 ‘Smart Freeze’ technology would provide enough juice to sustain the device for an adequate amount of time. The phone also features fingerprint scanners on both sides of the phone for convenience.
The Snapdragon 845-fueled Nubia X runs Android 8.1 Oreo along with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. Price will start at $615 in China, but the company hasn’t said anything about an international launch yet. From the look of things, the Nubia X will remain exclusive to the Chinese market. Third-party online retailers will put the device on sale, but you’ll have to confirm if the supported bands will compatible with your region’s network.
