THIS PHONE HAS NO NOTCH / FRONT CAMERA BUT PROVIDES A SECOND DISPLAY AT THE BACK FOR SELFIES

Isn't that smart???




Meet Nubia X, the phone that gives you a full-screen display without the notch. While so many competitors are using various mechanisms like the sliding camera feature in the latest Huawei Honor to hide the notch (which is disliked by a lot of people including myself), turns out that ZTE used a uniquely smart way to get rid of it together with the front camera by providing you with a secondary screen behind.

Remember when front cameras did not exist? The times when you had to position your arm at weird angles to take a picture, and only hope that your face appeared in the shot with the right facial expression? Looks like this problem has been genuinely solved now with the Nubia X.

The secondary screen behind the Nubia X isn't just for the camera but you can use it set a clock or a live wallpaper with the help of the Always-on feature of OLED screens. It doesn't end there just yet, it optimized for gaming; the secondary screen can serve the purpose of the familiar L an R buttons popular on the PS Vita. Not a lot on this feature has been confirmed yet but I'm pretty sure hardcore android gamers would love it.
