As expected, Nubia Z20 has been made official as the brand's Android flagship for the year. It was unveiled at an event held in China and will be making its way to global markets soon enough. The unique selling points of the smartphone are dual displays and Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor.
The Nubia Z20 has a 6.42-inch Full HD+ AMOLED primary display with slim bezels and no notch. The secondary display is a 5.1-inch HD+ AMOLED panel on the backside. It blends with the back panel in such a way that unless you turn it on, you would not know that the phone actually has two displays. Both displays support AOD 2.0 which is an Always On Display tech for showing relevant information, videos, graphics, customizable texts, and even GIFs.
It is currently the third smartphone to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor as it joins the club formed by Asus ROG Phone 2 and Black Shark 2 Pro. It has been released in three configuration models: 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, 8GB RAM with 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM with 512GB storage.
The triple camera setup includes a 48-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor (122-degree FoV), and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom and 30x digital zoom. It does not have any dedicated selfie camera as it makes use of the aforementioned camera setup for selfie and video calling purposes as well.
There is a 4,000mAh battery to keep the lights on with 27W fast charging support. Just like dual displays, it has dual fingerprint scanners which are present on each of the side frames. Other features include USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.1, and dual 4G VoLTE support. It will be running Nubia UI 7.0 based on Android 9 Pie out of the box.
The Nubia Z20 has been priced at CNY 3,499 for 6GB/128GB, CNY 3,699 for 8GB/128GB, and CNY 4,199 for 8GB/512GB models. All the models are already available for prebooking with sales starting August 16th.
