Nubia X: Smartphone with two sides


The Chinese manufacturer Nubia is showing a smartphone with two displays at CES. In addition to the 6.3-inch LCD on the front, Nubia has a slightly smaller OLED screen on the back, the second display is activated automatically when the smartphone is turned upside down and the main screen turns off Main screen, but can also operate in mode multi-tasking, which then displays, for example, another application.

Second screen

The second screen is below the semi-transparent glass back of the case. Since it does not need a light source and is therefore very flat, the manufacturer has used an OLED here. When the second display is off, Nubia X looks like a normal smartphone with a colored glass case. Optionally, you can also set up a screensaver, then go through the back of the case.

A front camera does not have a smartphone, make selfie with the Nubia X with the main camera on the back. This saves Nubia a front camera and can even do without a notch or a cutout of the display like the Honor View 20. The front of the Nubia X is therefore characterized by very narrow and uniform edges – this looks good and first view correctly processed.

upper class

The internal values ​​of Nubia X are at the level of the upper class: Snapdragon 845 with 6 or 8 gigabytes of RAM. The two main cameras are resolved with 16 and 24 megapixels. Worthy of note are the two fingerprint sensors connected to each edge, which allow you to unlock Nubia X regardless of the page in use.

Nubia is a former subsidiary of the Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE. The company was spun off in 2015 and from 2017 ZTE has only a minority share. Although the company has a German website, it is still unclear whether Nubia X will also be available here in Germany. However, at CES there were plans for some European markets during the year.

In the spring, Nubia X will be available in the United States and will cost US $ 599, said in Las Vegas. In China, the smartphone is available from November and already almost sold out.
