The Nubia X is a dual-screen phone that launched last year. Including a second screen is Nubia‘s way of achieving an edge-to-edge design as the main display nearly covers the whole of the front with just slivers of bezels at the top and bottom while the second albeit a smaller screen is surrounded by bezels that house the phone’s triple cameras.
The phone comes in multiple variants that Nubia has been releasing in batches. Today, the variant to go on sale is the Blue-Gold version which has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It is priced at ¥4299 (~$625) and is available for purchase on JD.com.
The Nubia X has a 6.26-inch 2280 x 1080 LCD primary display and a 5.1-inch HD+ OLED display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and a 128GB/256GB/512GB of non-expandable storage.
The design of the Nubia X means it doesn’t have a front-facing camera, so you have to use the main cameras on the back for taking selfies which is where the second display comes in as it serves as the viewfinder when taking selfies. There are two cameras on the rear – a 16MP f/1.8 sensor and a 24MP f/1.7 sensor.
The secondary display not only works as a viewfinder when taking selfies, but it can also serve as additional touch controls when playing a game on the main screen. And since it is an OLED display, it has an always-on-display feature which is customizable and can be configured to display animations, custom messages, or even used to monitor a virtual pet that comes with the phone.
The Nubia X doesn’t only have dual screens, it also has two side-mounted fingerprint scanners. There is Bluetooth 5.0, a type-C port, an IR blaster, and a 3800mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0. It runs Nubia UI 6.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
