The 5G revolution is rolling out now, and manufacturers aren’t left behind. Every phone makers wish to get captured in the book of the first 5G smartphones. At the official introduction of the 5G alliance at a pre-MWC Shanghai 2019 event hosted by China Mobile, ZTE sub-brand Nubia announced its first mobile phone ( the Nubia X 5G) that can click to the next generation connectivity.
Launched back at the MWC2019, the Nubia X device went against the trend, taking a pretty extreme approach to solving the notch problem: it puts a second display on the back, removing the entire need for a front-facing camera. The device, unfortunately, is powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and can only click to the 4G network.
The Nubia X 5G as announced today is simply the same device as the 4GB variant of the X, but now with 5G connectivity. The design and of course the internals are, essentially the same, although the Nubia X 5G gets the 5G logo located at the top right corner of the secondary display. In a similar manner, the Nubia X 5G gets two new addition – a new processor and a new modem – most likely the Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon X50 Modem which allows it connect to the next generation connectivity.
While the device is expected to share the same internals with the standardNubia X, increasing the battery capacity could be considered, perhaps to make up for the slight changes in the future. Nubia has yet to reveal the Nubia X5G pricing, as well as rill out date.
