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.
