While there were a few wearable smartwatches showcased at IFA 2018, ZTE sub-brand Nubia caught everybody’s attention by displaying its new wearable smartphone, which the company calls Nubia-α (alpha). While the company hasn’t revealed much about the device, a new teaser video for the wearable smartphone has now surfaced online, which makes us believe that the company could launch the smartphone soon.

The 37 second teaser video posted on YouTube by a channel called Social Nubia, gives us a decent idea of what to expect from the new smartphone. It looks like the Nubia-α will be carrying a tall bendable OLED screen, which along with the watch strap will wrap itself around the user’s hand. The smartphone will also be carrying a heart rate sensor at the back, and some fitness related features.

A camera lens can also be seen placed next to screen, which means that the Nubia-α will support video calling and other photography features. There also seem to be two buttons placed on either side of the screen, but we’re not sure what they will be used for, or if they are actual buttons. Because of the screen, the interface will of course be vertically aligned. The video does give us an idea of how the incoming calling screen and the contacts screen could looks like. Music player and some fitness features are also shown.

The Nubia-α looks sleek and stylish with its OLED panel and metal strap. The smartphone will also be available in black and white colors, both of which look pretty good. While Nubia seems eager to tell the world about its new smartphone, it hasn’t revealed details on its specifications or a possible launch date. We just have to wait and find out.
