Meet the Nubia X: Dual displays, 93.6% screen, Snapdragon 845

ZTE has announced the latest flagship under its Nubia sub-brand, the Nubia X. One of the handset’s key highlight are its dual displays – a 6.26-inch front display and a 5.1-inch screen at the back. Now, this workaround has allowed the manufacturer to maximize the smartphone’s total screen real estate. Besides, the company has also ditched the selfie shooter and the notch in order to achieve an impressive screen to body ratio. Even more interesting is the fact that the phone’s primary camera takes care of clicking selfies.

Specifications-wise, the Nubia X gets a 6.26-inch full HD+ (2280X1080 pixels) front display having an aspect ratio of 19:9 and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Even the bezels around the edges are really slim, giving the handset an impressive screen to body ratio of 93.6 percent.

The smartphone also has 5.1-inch secondary HD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The display on the back can be used to take selfies and other tasks. It can also be turned off after which it looks like any normal handset.

Under the hood, the Nubia X gets powered by Snapdragon 845 processor bundled with 6GB/8GB of RAM, Adreno 630 GPU, and up to 256GB of built-in storage. Software-wise, the Nubia X runs the Android 8.1 Oreo with Nubia UI 6.0.2 on top.

In the photography department, the smartphone features 16MP+24MP dual rear cameras with dual-tone LED flash and PDAF. There’s no dedicated selfie camera on the front, but the secondary display at the back can be used to click HD selfies.

Elsewhere, the Nubia X gets fuelled by a 3800mAh battery with NeoPower 3.0 Smart Freeze technology. Connectivity features on the Nubia X include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB Type-C port. Sensors on board the handset include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass, gyroscope, and proximity sensor.

As far as pricing goes, the Nubia X gets a starting price tag of CNY 3299 (INR 35,000 approx.). However, the company is yet to announce the handset’s availability in other international markets. That said, key sources indicate that the handset would likely remain exclusive to the Chinese market.
