ZTE's Nubia X strives to make dual-screen smartphones mainstream.
At CES this year I met with a team from Chinese phone company ZTE to check out its latest flagship smartphone: The Nubia X. The phone maintains all of the typical specs of most flagship smartphones today, but there's one more thing setting it apart from the field--the dual display.
ZTE listened to tech pundits and consumers complaints about phones having a notch on its beautiful displays and came up with a solution. Nubia X has two screens -- one on the front, and a second on the back. The second screen can easily be used during typical smartphone use (or to take a selfie). The phone also features an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
