Nubia, the Chinese smartphone company that became independent from ZTE in 2015, has an alternative to the continuing problem of what to do with the selfie camera on phones without bezels around the screen.
Oppo and Vivo use motorized cameras, Honor uses a punch hole display, and many others use a notch.
The 5.1-inch, 1,520 x 720 pixel screen on the back of the Nubia looks fabulous, almost like it’s etched in due to being set further under the surface than we’re used to seeing.
For selfies, it uses the rear 24 and 16-megapixel sensors, which will always provide more impressive results than a single, smaller sensor above the screen.
The 8.4mm thickness is manageable, and at 181 grams, it’s lighter than an iPhone XS Max.
Like its competitors, the Oppo Find X and the Vivo Nex S, it looks futuristic and is sure to attract admiring glances.
