On September 5, Nubia released its flagship Z18 in Beijing. At present, this smartphone is on sale and the 6GB+64GB version is priced at 2,799 Yuan ($408) while the 8GB+128GB version has a 3,299 Yuan ($481) price tag. Now, a new Nubia phone has appeared online but this time, it is nothing like the Z18. A new video recently appeared on Weibo which shows the new Nubia device with a dual display. The last time we saw a dual display smartphone was sometime last year when Meizu released the Meizy PRO 7 which comes with a rear “painting screen”
However, the new Nubia dual display smartphone is quite different from the Meizu PRO 7. Although the front display is larger than the rear just like the PRO 7, the rear display is significantly larger in this upcoming Nubia phone compared to the Meizu Pro 7. The bezels on this new phone are thicker in the rear display especially on the top which houses a dual camera setup. One interesting aspect of this smartphone is that the front display is completely bezeless on all four sides. Apparently, you do not need cameras on both sides of this smartphone because the rear display is full-coloured and larger than 4-inches thus you can conveniently take a selfie with the rear display acting as the main display.
The displays have no notch and the dual rear camera setup is lodged at the top left of the smartphone. It supports a side fingerprint sensor. Is this smartphone the successor to the Meizu PRO 7? Well, it looks far better than the PRO 7. Recall that the PRO 7 rear screen only supports the display of weather, notification, steps and few other functions. The secondary screen of Nubia’s dual-screen phone can do everything that the main screen does.
Taking a wide guess, the main screen of the Nubia device is upward of 5.5.inch while the rear display is above 4-inch. The detailed specifications and release time of this new machine are not known for now. Of course, Nubia may start a new series for this dual-screen phone like the “Red Devil” series.
This device is certainly worth looking forward to. Do you think that this device will be a hit? Let us know in the comment.
