Nubia may not be a hugely-popular name in the mobile world, but the former ZTE subsidiary does make some really interesting smartphones. The company is now prepping to launch a new smartphone – Nubia X – and it’ll reportedly go official on October 31.

As noted by GSMArena, a teaser of the upcoming smartphone was recently shared on Chinese social networking service Weibo by Nubia CTO Ni Fei. The teaser doesn’t reveal much, except for the above-mentioned launch date and a stylized ‘X’.

However, due to numerous leaks and rumors over the past few weeks, we already have an idea of what to expect from Nubia X. Apparently, this is the smartphone that was earlier rumored to launch as Nubia Z18s.

The most interesting feature of Nubia X has to be its dual display. The front of the smartphone is likely to have a bezel-less screen – a 6.26-inch FullHD+ panel with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. There’s neither a notch, nor a selfie camera. Why? Well, that’s what the secondary display is for.

If the leaks are to be believed, Nubia X will come with a 5.1-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 720×1520 pixels on its back. This display will act as a viewfinder, allowing users to take selfies using the dual-camera system at the back, reportedly comprised of a 24-megapixel sensor and a 16-megapixel sensor. This is definitely the most-innovative solution we’ve seen a company come up with to do away with bezels. The secondary rear screen is also expected to have an ‘Always On’ mode and will be able to display the full Android user interface.

A flagship smartphone, Nubia X is likely to come with a Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage, as revealed by a TENAA listing. A 3,800mAh battery is also expected.
