ZTE’s Nubia launched their flagship smartphone Nubia X with a secondary AMOLED screen last year. Now, the company has announced a 5G variant of the same device dubbed the Nubia X 5G with Qualcomm’s X50 modem. Nubia X 5G was introduce at the 5G+ mobile conference hosted by China Mobile.


The Nubia X 5G runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC with Qualcomm’s X50 modem for 5G connectivity. The 5G logo is printed on the back beside the rear dual LED flash to indicate that this smartphone is 5G capable. Apart from the logo, there is no visible change in design compared to last year's Nubia X.

Although we know the SoC and modem, the rest of the specifications are still unconfirmed. But we believe they would be similar to the 4G Nubia X launched earlier this year.


Here's a look at what we can speculate about the specifications. The Nubia X will come with a 6.26-inch FHD+ 19:9 aspect ratio display with minimal bezels and a screen to body ratio of 93.6%. It does not have a front camera because a secondary 5.1-inch HD+ AMOLED screen on rear side can be used in conjuction with the rear camera to capture selfies. 

It has two cameras on the back. A 16-megapixel rear camera with AI scene recognition, dual-tone LED flash along with 24-megapixel camera.


It has a fingerprint sensor on both the sides to make it easier to use either of the two displays.

The Nubia X 5G is expected to pack 3800mAh battery that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging. At present, there is no confirmation on availability.
