To date, smartphone manufacturers have adopted several ways in order to deliver the full-screen experience on their devices. Apple’s notched display from iPhone X series seemed to be the most popular solution at the moment with many Android manufacturers have adopted it as well. However, a number of companies managed to think of other solutions too such as motorized body by OPPO and Vivo alongside the revival of slider form factor by Xiaomi, Honor, and Lenovo.
That being said, the latest attempt which was done by Nubia on its new flagship the Nubia X is way different though. The company has decided not to implement a front camera and dedicate the front area of the phone specifically for a 6.26-inch Full HD+ display. Through Nubia X, the company managed to deliver a screen-to-body ratio of 93.6%.
So, how would you snap a selfie with Nubia X then? Naturally, you must use the phone’s rear camera to do that but don’t worry about misaligned selfies because there is another 5.1-inch HD+ OLED touch display on its back.
The rear display which can seamlessly blend back into the phone’s physical design when not in use can also be configured to show dynamic pictures, clocks, and wallpapers. Speaking about the rear camera, it is equipped with a 16MP and 25MP sensors alongside AI-powered enhancements.
Running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the Nubia X is also equipped with fingerprint scanners on both sides of its body as well as a 3800mAh battery. Scheduled for release in China within this month, the 6GB/64GB variant is priced at CNY 3299 (about RM 1999) while the 8GB/128GB version goes for CNY 3699 (~RM 2242).
It is not known whether this phone will be making its way into Malaysia or otherwise. Given the excitement over at Nubia Malaysia’s Facebook page though who have stated that the phone will be released to international market at the end of this year or early 2019, you might want to stay tuned for further updates.
