While Apple has created a digital notch bar, Samsung are engineering a below the surface front camera, and Google have issues with their second notch appearing, ZTE has disrupted the notch issue entirely with the creation of dual-screens on the Nubia X.
The Nubia X’s nifty talent was leaked ahead of its official launch in a video clearly showing the second display on its back, making a front-facing camera completely unnecessary as users can take a selfie or video chat with the rear camera.
This is a full-colour OLED screen with a resolution of 1,520 x 720 and it blends into the glossy glass back seamlessly as you can see on notable leaker Ice Universe tweeted out.
This is the Nubia X, a dual-screen phone with a very high screen ratio.

The screens are unlocked by fingerprint scanners positioned on either side of the device, one scanner for each screen.
The ZTE Nubia X is running on Snapdragon 845 with older Android 8.1 Oreo instead of Android 9 Pie with a choice of 6GB or 8GB of RAM. Check out more specs here.
Currently, the device is being released in China alone and there are no current plans to enter the Nubia X in the global market.
