Despite the dominance of the notched 19:9 displays in the Android market for the last year, Nubia has taken a different approach with the Nubia X; removing the notch and the front-facing camera completely in lieu of a giant screen at the front of the smartphone.
The display at the front of the Nubia X is a 6.26-inch FullHD+ LCD screen. How, you might ask, will users of the Nubia X will be able to take selfies? Well, Nubia has placed a 5.1-inch 1520 x 720 OLED display at the rear in order for its users to take selfies with the 16MP f/1.8 + 24MP f/1.7 main cameras.
The screen at the rear can also act as buttons while gaming. Speaking of gaming, the Nubia X comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset to deliver top notch gaming experience and is backed by up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB UFS 2.1 of internal storage.
Nubia has also moved the fingerprint scanner to both sides of the smartphone instead of placing it at the rear for a more ergonomic experience. The smartphone is powered by a 3,800mAh battery with fast charging via its USB Type-C port.
