ZTE ANNOUNCES NUBIA X, A FULL DISPLAY PHONE WITH DUAL OLED SCREENS
Just when you think what more could we expect from smartphone companies hit the market with better upgrades. With years advancing, the screens are getting bigger and quality better. ZTE’s new all-screen phone, Nubia X is a perfect example for that. So you can wave goodbye to jagged phone edges.
When we say “all-screen” we mean no front-facing camera either. Instead, ZTE has come up with a solution of their own. There are dual-cameras at the back and a secondary display to capture your selfies. Moreover, you can enjoy widgets like screensavers and clocks at the back of your phone rather than looking at the same old boring metal rear sides.

Display and Designs

The body of the phone is made using aviation grade 7000-series aluminum. The back is as beautiful as the front. Its 3D glass and curved edges along with an OLED unit make it unique and special. You can have widgets and always-on features on the rear OLED display unit and it can be turned off when not in use.
The phone enjoys impressive features with a huge 6.26-inch display with a resolution of FHD+ (1080 X 2280) and a 2.5D glass cover to protect it. Its aspect ratio is 19:9. The rear display is comparatively smaller. It has a 5.1-inch HD+ resolution. The aspect ratio for this is the same as same as front display, 19:9.
Hardware and Storage
Nubia X uses Snapdragon 845 chipset and an Adreno 630 GPU to bring the phone to life. The phone has a 6 or 8 GB RAM. It also has an internal cooling system to avoid thermal throttling, heating up and adjusting the phone’s temperature. It uses a multi-layered graphene cooling module to achieve that. The phone does not have a slot for a memory card but with an internal storage of up to 256 GB and a total of three memory variants (8/256, 8/128, and 6/64) the phone manages to impress nevertheless.
Camera and Software
Right up to its expectations, Nubia X is packed with a lot of photography features. The dual rear camera features a 1.8 aperture 16 megapixels sensor and another 1.7 aperture 24 megapixels sensor. The camera offers a portrait mode with AI scene detection for great beauty shots. Moreover, there is an HDR mode so that the quality of your pictures is not compromised. The video camera has a 240 fps slow motion video recording.
The phone uses Android 8.1 Oreo for fast performance, updated apps, and smooth running. Even though ZTE has not announced when the model will get the latest Android 9.0 update, the phone has a pre-installed software called Nubia UI 6.0 X. It works perfectly with the giant bezel-less screen, using smart gestures and exclusive apps.
Android Pie features allow you to keep a track of your habits. With eye health settings, dark mode and other options this phone really puts the ‘smart’ in smartphone. AI scene detection automatically detects which side of the phone you are using (front or rear) and switches accordingly. You can unlock this phone in just 0.1 seconds using the two fingerprint sensors on each side of the phone.
