Nubia is back with a dual-screen phone, the Nubia Z20. The phone sports a 6.41-inch and 5.1-inch FHD+ and HD+ AMOLED screen on the front and back of it respectively. On the rear side of the phone, the screen starts just below the triple camera set-up and mixes with rest of the rear cover, the same way we saw in last year’s Nubia X.
As for the triple camera set-up, the device carries a 48MP snapper with OIS, a 16MP ultra-wide sensor (122.2-degree FOV with 2.5cm macro shots), and an 8MP 3x telephoto sensor. And as the second screen along with the triple cameras can be used to portrait shots, you’ll miss the selfie sensors in Nubia Z20.
Similarly, the phone has pressure-sensitive edges on offer alike HTC and Google’s Active Edge technology, along with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on each side. The latter tech offers users with the scanner option on their preferred side. An alternative move to this could have been the use of in-display fingerprint scanner on both sides but it significantly raises the overall cost on the flip side.
The Z20 is powered by a Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset paired with a 6GB or 8GB RAM. As for storage, there are two variants — 128GB and 512GB. The phone houses a 4,000mAh battery with 27-watt fast charging.
Some other significant features include 8K video recording, USB-C, and Bluetooth 5.1 but you’ll miss a 3.5mm port. Also, it might be one of the first phones using Bluetooth 5.1 which is said to enhance the indoor navigation and tracker tag performance.
The Nubia Z20 retails for 3,499 yuan (~$497) for 6GB/128GB variant in China. Similarly, the 8GB/128GB variant costs 3,699 yuan (~$525). While the price for the 512GB option is yet unknown.
