Nubia, a Shenzhen, China-based smartphone maker, unveiled its groundbreaking dual-screen smartphone, the Nubia Alpha at the MWC Barcelona. The smartphone, which combines the features of a smartphone and a smartwatch, received several “best of CES” awards at CES Las Vegas in January.
The display in Nubia Alpha is the largest wearable flexible screen in the industry (up to 230% larger than standard wearable displays). Custom-engineered for brilliant visuals and durability, the panoramic, 4-inch, wrap-around screen lets you see more, control more, and experience more, said Nubia in a press release.
Phone that You Can Wear on Your Wrist
The flexible display allows you to wear it on your wrist. With Bluetooth, Wifi, and eSIM technologies, the Alpha allows you to send texts, make calls, and access the internet without the need for a separate smartphone. The phone is also equipped with a 5-megapixel camera with clever UI shortcuts.
Anodized Stainless Steel Body
The Alpha is crafted from the most premium materials and available in both black and gold colors. Constructed from anodized stainless steel, the gold variant features a band plated in real 18k gold. In regards to durability, the Alpha is water-resistant, and the flexible display is coated in heat-resistant Polyimide.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 platform, the Alpha provides a smooth day-to-day experience. Boasting 1GB of RAM + 8GB of onboard memory, it provides advanced mobile processing power, amazing connectivity, and impressive battery life.
