ZTE patents another dual-screen smartphone design

Remember the Nubia X? It was the ambitious and out-of-the-box thinking from ZTE  that brought us the first dual-screen smartphone. This allowed ZTE to build an exquisite edge-to-edge display on the Nubia X that was released in November last year. Now, new patents have been reported by Mobielkopen that furthers the same idea with some tweaks.


Gizchina News of the week

According to the publication, ZTE applied for a new dual-screen patent with the secondary screen on the rear being a smaller one. This one takes up just a smaller portion of the upper back while the Nubia X had a much bigger full-fledged second screen. The patent was granted at the State Intellectual Property Office last week. Apart from that, a triple camera setup, dual bottom speakers, and a USB Type-C can be seen easily. For now, this is just a patent that has been approved and we don’t know if/when this design will ever make it to final mass-production levels, if ever.

    Nubia is NOT ZTE. Why do you continue this nonsense? Nubia has not been ZTE owned for years. ZTE still own shares in Nubia, but they are NOT a majority shareholder and they are no longer the parent company. Look on the Nubia website and see if you can find ANY mention of ZTE.
    So, whose patent is this? ZTE or Nubia?
