ZTE Nubia X Specs and Price

ZTE Nubia X
Jumia Black Friday Deals 2022

Chinese OEMs have been quite impressive lately, pushing new innovations into the smartphone scene. One of them is to maximise screen space as much as possible and we’ve seen some different approach to achieve that. The Vivo Nex S uses a pop-up selfie camera, on the Oppo Find X has a motor powered selfie camera slide and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has magnetic slider to show the front camera. On the ZTE Nubia X, the smartphone adopts a second screen at the rear side which you can use to take selfies. This eliminates the need for a front camera, hence, things like the notch on the Huawei Mate 20 X no matter how fancy is not even needed.

Design and Display

You have to give it to ZTE on this one, the ZTE Nubia X looks good and aesthetically sound for a smartphone that has two display. You have an aviation grade aluminium frame holding the glass body together. The all screen front is quite amazing with almost bezel-less sides and a tiny bit of bezel at the top and bottom. The rear side has a dual camera accompanied by two LED flash.and the rear screen.

Having two screen on a smartphone is unconventional, however, it seems very functional when you think about it. The main screen is 6.26-inch in size and it is AMOLED with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Also, the resolution here is 1080 x 2280 pixels which is nice considering the size with bright vivid colour display. On the back, you have a smaller 5.1-inch OLED screen with a 720 x 1520 pixels resolution. Its primary purpose is for taking selfies and if it’s not doing that it can be set to show time, wallpaper or just turn off depending on you.

Battery and Camera

With what you have on the ZTE Nubia X, it can handle a days work without any need to plug-in provided it is on a full charge. In addition to a 3, 800mAh battery, the smartphone also has fast charging for convenient top-up of battery juice.

The one-sided camera might take some getting used to but it doesn’t feel.like a challenge really because of the modification made to make this realistic enough. Employing the same set of 16MP and 24MP camera for selfies too, there is a slight difference like the soft LED flash involved rather than the other brighter primary rear one. You would be quite pleased with how good the pictures taken turn out to be.

Hardware and Software

Gunning for top-notch performance, the smartphone features a high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with an Adreno 630 GPU to compliment. The SoC on the ZTE Nubia X will certainly do the trick as it has proven itself in other flagships to be a splendid processor. The smartphone has a 6GB RAM version with 64GB ROM and another with 8GB RAM having either 128GB or 256GB storage space. There is no slot for external storage so you might have to pick the storage option that will suit you. It is a bit disappointing that you don’t have the latest Android OS on the phone instead you’ve got Android 8.1/Oreo pre-installed.
