The Chinese Nubia showcased some advanced features of Nubia Alpha at the MWC 2019 back in February. Nubia Alpha has the features and hardware to replace a smartphone, according to this company.
At the CES 2019 conference in Las Vegas, the company first introduced the Alpha smartwatch. The company said it should be launched in China in April for the first time. Now the official launcher date of 8 April has been revealed by Nubia.
On the market in China, the eSIM variant is restricted, unfortunately, so even voice and video appeals can take place. The Bluetooth variant will be used on the foreign markets, on the other hand.
Under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC which is partnered with 1GB of RAM. It works on a customized OS with many features. The Alpha Smartwatch has an internal storage capacity of 8GB for app installation and offline storage.
The 5000mAh battery is supposed to last one or two days depending upon the usage. The Nubia Alpha’s 4-inch flexible display stands out from Android Wear devices. The unusual resolution of 960 by 192 pixels is available with a 4-inch flexible OLED display. Given that this new segment is a first-genre device, the design still needs some refining. On either side of the display, the large two bezels make it too voluminous on your wrist.
The watch is backed by a camera alongside an extra sensor to track air gestures. With that sensor, one can wave on a smartwatch to control it with ease. The Alpha smartwatch has 5MP front-facing camera with 82-degree wide-angle view with an aperture of f/2.2.
We are expecting Nubia to launch truly wireless earbuds named Nubia Pods on the release day. These Nubia Pods were launched in partnership with 1more.
