The launch of the Vivo NEX and of late, the OPPO Find X may kickstart a surge in the number of full-screen, truly bezel-less phones. Nubia was among the first of OEMs to launch phones having thin-bezels. The company is now set to take its own bezel-less phone design to the next level with the Nubia Z18. Leaked renders of the Z18 shows the device will come with super thin bezels. A new leaked photo of the Z18 has now emerged to further confirm the display design.
There is hardly any feature to ascertain that this is the Z18 except for the camera interface. The camera UI is exactly the same as that of the Nubia Z17s as shown in the picture below. The Nubia Z18 looks different in design, though, as the bezels are very thin on all four sides. The bezels are very thin such that it is impossible to house the front camera up there. There is no sign of the sensor being located at the chin but we can’t say if it will pack a pop-up camera.
The Nubia Z18 was expected to feature a notch design on its display similar to the Essential Phone but this new photo shows no such design. But the screen-to-body ratio looks a lot higher than those of previous Nubia models. As far as the hardware goes, the Z18 is expected to feature a 5.99-inch display with an FHD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The device will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM and 64 GB storage on one model. There will be a higher model with 128 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM. It features a 3,350mAh battery and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo. The Z18 is also expected to feature a dual camera setup at the rear comprised of a 24-megapixel main sensor and it has a selfie snapper of 8-megapixel. The phone also packs a rear fingerprint scanner.
