Nubia Launches A Smartphone That Folds In To A SmartWatch



 At the ongoing Mobile World Congress, ZTE Nubia has released a flexible smartphone that can be folded then wrapped around your wrist as a smartwatch. This wearable comes with an OLED bendable display, e-SIM support, a camera, and runs on a custom OS.

The smartphone maker released the product which is the supposed finished version of its Alpha concept that it first showed off during IFA in September 2018.


Dubbed Nubia Alpha, the smartwatch comes with an OLED 4-inch flexible display (960x192) which the company says has more than 230% more screen room than the standard smartwatches.

There's a Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC onboard which is kind of old because it was released in 2016. There's 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, a 500mAh battery size that Nubia claims can last up to a day or two (48 hours of standby time).

The Nubia Alpha runs on a custom OS that Nubia claims can perform what your Android device does. The smartwatch can be controlled via motion gestures, has two knobs on the right edge to aid in navigation, a heart rate sensor and a T9 keyboard for typing text.

For connectivity, the device supports 4G connectivity, WiFi, e-SIM and Bluetooth. The device has a built-in speaker, a heart rate monitor sensor, a 5MP camera 82 degree wide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture.

 Nubia designed a clever UI shortcut for ease of use e.g tapping the screen will take pictures while long pressing it will record a video.


The smartwatch was made from anodized stainless steel which is available in black and gold. The band too is also available in black and as well 18k gold.

Other features of this wearable is that it is water-resistant and the display is coated in a heat-resistant polymide.

The Nubia Alpha will be up for sale starting in April and will be available in two options; the Bluetooth -only black variant (which will pair with a phone) will be sold for $510, while the e-SIM variant (which also serves as a phone) will be sold for $625. The gold-plated version will be sold for $740
