The ZTE Nubia X was announced today, and just as expected, it is a dual screen flagship. To give you all the information about the latest device from ZTE, read on and see some of its key features, full specifications and price. You also get to see the ZTE Nubia X release date in China and other markets.
ZTE Nubia X Features
The best feature of the ZTE Nubia X is unarguably its display, which achieves 93.6% screen-to-body ratio. It uses the LCD panel, while on the back you will find a secondary OLED screen. The main display of the Nubia X has a Full HD+ (1080 x 2280 pixels) resolution and a 6.26 inch diagonal with a tall 19:9 aspect ratio. The secondary display stretches to 5.1 inch, with the same 19:9 aspect ratio but lower HD+ (720 x 1520 pixel) resolution.
The ZTE Nubia X is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset, coupled with either a 6GB or 8GB RAM. The internal storage options ranges from 64GB to 256GB, but have in mind that microSD card expansion support is not available.
The ZTE Nubia X does not come with a front-facing camera, this is because you can easily snap selfies with the dual setup on the back using the secondary camera. The cameras are aided by AI scene recognition feature and PDAF phase detection autofocus.
From the battery angle, the Nubia X is powered by a 3800mAh battery, which promises to last at least for a day after a full charge to 100%. The phone came with Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box, with nubia’s UI6.0.2 on top. Another interesting part is that the phone came with two fingerprint readers positioned on the two sides. Depending on which one you use, you can unlock either screen. The scanners also double as navigation buttons, which is kind of cool. Sadly, there’s no 3.5mm audio jack.
