ZTE unveiled its latest Flagship Device the "Nubia X" in an event held in China on October 31st. With the mixed reactions for the "notch" trend received this year, it was only a matter of time before Device manufacturers came up with Unique solutions to eliminate the notch and ZTE has done the same.

The New Nubia X is all Screen on the front with a ~86.6% screen to body ratio. One of the main highlights of the device is the dual-screen. The primary display is a 6.26" FHD+(i.e. 1080x2280) IPS LCD Panel with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The secondary display on the back is an OLED panel with an HD+ resolution (i.e. 720 x 1520). Both the displays are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The Nubia X is powered by the Snapdragon 845 CPU, based on the new 10nm FinFET process with an Adreno 630 GPU & comes with 6/8 GB of RAM. For storage options, you have a 64GB, 128GB & 256GB variant with no slot for micro-SD card.

Talking about the photo & video capabilities of the device, the Nubia X comes with a dual rear camera setup. The primary lens is a 24MP shooter with f1.7 aperture, and the second lens is a 16MP shooter with an f1.8 aperture. Both the sensors support Phase-Detection Auto-Focus. The interesting thing to note here is that the device doesn't come with a front selfie cam. The rear camera doubles up as a selfie shooter using the secondary display on the back of the device. As usual, we have AI stuff too like AI Portrait, AI Scene Recognition and slow-motion video recording at 240FPS.

For added security, there's not one but two fingerprint sensors which are mounted on both the sides. Unlike most of the flagships, this one doesn't come with a face recognition hardware. Connectivity options include dual-band WiFi & Bluetooth 5.0. There's no NFC on the device. Talking about the battery capacity we have a non-removable 3800 mAh li-po battery, and there is also support for Quick Charge 4.0 to charge up the device in a go quickly. Like most of the devices, this one too comes with a USB Type-C reversible connector.

According to the Nubia, the secondary display also doubles up as a controller for games.

It's good to see OEMs take a different approach to solve the notch issue and get rid of it finally but these design choices come with some cons too. What's your take on the device?
