Confirming its presence at the Mobile World Congress 2019, ZTE’s sub-brand nubia has teased a flexible device which is essentially a wearable smartphone. Called as nubia-α (Alpha), the device was first showcased at IFA Berlin in 2018.
One of the main USPs of the nubia-α (Alpha) is that one can wear it on the wrist. The device features a large curved OLED screen using Flex, the company’s proprietary flexible display technology. The wearable device also has a front camera and button on the sides. The back of device is home to charging pins and heart rate sensor.
The company has not announced any further details about the device.
This is not the first time that ZTE is trying its fortune in the wearable space. Earlier, the company announced Axon M at MWC 2018 that came with two displays attached by a hinge in between.
The Alpha is said to come with a specially tuned proximity sensor that determines the orientation of the wearable smartphone. The company hasn’t revealed any information pertaining to the display resolution, the processor that will power the wearable, the memory or storage, or even the battery life.
