Nubia Z20 phone has two displays and no notch

Nubia Z20 phone has two displays and no notch”

Nubia launched its new flagship Z20 smartphone bearing Dual AMOLED display in China yesterday. That said, the Nubia Z20 takes after the Nubia X of past year with the front and back display style.

The device features FIT4.0, pressure-sensitive frame with custom long and short grip shortcut functions, and an option for right and left virtual game buttons functions on the secondary screen. Interestingly, there's no in-display fingerprint scanner, and the biometrics are handled by dual side-mounted fingerprint scanners, catering to both lefties and righties. At the back, the phone flaunts a flexible AMOLED display that blends into the glass build. And this is there for many reasons, not just to take selfies. You will be able to perform 30x digital zoom and 3x lossless zoom. So that's also an interesting design choice.

That rear 5.1in always-on display is described by Nubia as "fully functional", which is less encouraging. The rear screen also shows various lighting effects while doing certain tasks, like playing games or music.

Dual screen phones are admittedly the most eccentric and most expensive way to solve the notch problem. Now, you can flip the screen over, reply to the message, come back to the main screen & continue doing what you were doing. The device builds on the success of the nubia X, which debuted the brand's dual-screen technology. Under the hood, the latest Nubia phone has the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC with up to 512GB of onboard storage. It used to launch high-end gaming smartphones in par with Asus's ROG and Xiaomi's Black Shark. The company doesn't mention if it's UFS 3.0 storage, so it is UFS 2.1.

Coming to the cameras, there is a triple camera setup on the back & that's it. There is no front camera. There is no selfie shooter because the main camera system is enough. It can shoot 8K videos, supports 2.5cm macro shots, high-quality portraits, night mode and has a dual flash setup on the rear. It also features the new Snapdragon 855 Plus processor and packs a bigger battery with a faster charging (27W) technology.

In addition to 4G VoLTE, the Nubia Z20 provides support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, and USB Type-C fast charging port. The Nubia Z20 8GB + 512GB variant is priced at $596 (4,199 Yuan). The device is now on pre-order in China, and will go on sale from August 16. The release for the US, Canada, and the European Union is planned for September 2019.
