The biggest challenge while making a smartphone these days is designing the front without any notch. The camera always takes up your front display in some form of a notch. Well, Nubia X has solved this problem by adding a secondary screen. Nubia, a ZTE brand, this week introduced its new smartphone with front and rear displays and Qualcomm’s high-end SoC.
Nubia X features a 93.6% screen-to-body ratio on the primary LCD, with Snapdragon 845, 6-8GB of RAM, and a 3,800mAh battery. The primary display is a 6.26-inch IPS LCD offering a 2280×1080 resolution, a 19:9 aspect ratio and yes, without any notch. The secondary display is a 5.1-inch OLED that has the same aspect ratio, but a 1520×720 resolution. The body has two fingerprint readers which are side-mounted, so the phone can be unlocked from either of its sides. Nubia claims that it uses graphene layers to cool down the key electronic components.
Since the secondary display is OLED panel, power consumption should be less. So it is difficult to say how long will the Nubia X last on one charge. Nubia claims that its camera software can detect scenes and environments to adjust settings. The primary camera is a 24 MP sensor with a f/1.7 aperture coupled with a 16 MP sensor with a f/1.8 aperture. The camera is designed to be used both for regular and selfie photos. Nubia will come with Android 8.1 OS and its own Nubia 6.0 UI. The lower variant price will be $470 and a higher variant will be priced $600(in China).
This is the Nubia X, a dual-screen phone with a very high screen ratio.

Let’s see how it performs in the market, sure thing there will be no face unlock which might be an issue but still, it is not a deal breaker. The phone looks very beautiful and should be beast in performance too with snapdragon 845. It has very little bezels on the top and a slightly noticeable chin at the bottom.
