ZTE sub-brand Nubia took the wraps off of its newest smartphone this week, and it's got a couple of interesting features to help it stand out in the sea of Android phones.
The Nubia Z20 features a 6.42-inch FHD+ display on its front with no notch, hole-punch, or pop-up camera. Since there's no front camera on the Z20, Nubia has given the phone a second screen on the back. This 5.1-inch touchscreen is fully featured and lets you take selfies with the rear cameras of the Z20 as well as show always-on notifications.
The triple rear camera setup on the Nubia Z20 includes a 48MP main sensor, a 16MP ultra wide angle camera with a 122.2-degree field of view, and an 8MP telephoto cam with 3x optical zoom. The cameras also boast super slow motion video capture, a Pro Mode, and a Super Night Mode to help you get better low-light shots.
Another major feature of the Nubia Z20 is its processor. Inside the phone is Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 855 Plus processor that offers a higher CPU clock speed and improved GPU performance over the regular Snapdragon 855. Only a couple of other phones have been announced with the Snapdragon 855 Plus so far, so its inclusion in the Nubia Z20 is notable.
Other specs of the Nubia Z20 include up to 8GB of RAM, UFS 3.0 storage, 512GB of internal storage, and a 4000mAh battery that supports up to 27W fast charging over USB-PD.
The Nubia Z20 will launch in China on August 16th. Pricing will start at 3499 yuan ($495 USD) for the 6GB/128GB model and go up to 3699 yuan ($524 USD) for the 8GB/128GB model.
The exciting news is that it's also coming to the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Europe in September (via Android Police). Sometimes these high-end Android phones with interesting features like a second screen are exclusive to China, so it's great to see that the Nubia Z20 will make its way to other parts of the globe for anyone intrigued by the Z20's dual screen design.
