Last year, nubia offered its fans an interesting product: drifting away from the notch by implementing two screens, one in front and one in the back. Thus, this gave birth to the nubia X, a very curious handset that now has an heir – the new nubia Z20. This smartphone was leaked a week before its presentation, but now it is official, so let’s get to know it better.
2 Screens, 2 Fingerprint Scanners, & 3 Camera Setup
The nubia Z20’s design is very different from what we have seen in other high-end devices, mainly because it has two AMOLED screens and two fingerprint readers, one on each side of the device. That is designed to unlock the phone as it grabs, since, after all, it will be mandatory to turn around to take a selfie, for example. The back is made of glass and is available in red, blue and black.
Talking about the screens, the “main”, that is the one in the front, is a curved AMOLED panel of 6.42-inch 19.5: 9 with FullHD+ resolution (2,340 x 1,080 pixels). wwith a maximum brightness of, according to the brand, 600 nits. The screen we have on the back, which we can call “secondary”, is also AMOLED, but 5.1-inch with HD+ resolution (1,520 x 720 pixels). It will be used, mainly, to take pictures and to have a kind of screensaver when not in use.
Powered By Snapdragon 855 Plus, A Gaming Smartphone?!
The internal hardware consists of six or eight GB of RAM with 128 or 512 GB of internal storage. There is no 256 GB intermediate version. The processor, of course, is the Snapdragon 855 Plus for the public gamer. And now that we talk about gamers, highlight that the frames are sensitive. So they can be configured to emulate buttons and execute actions in games.
