Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE has a knack for sleek border-less phones which started with the launch of the Nubia Z9 in 2005 and continuing all the way to the launch of Nubia Z17 last year which came with a 2.1 Full-Screen design and a screen to body ratio of 90.36%. Now it aims to a completely different smartphone, one that eliminates all the bezels.
The company teased an image in the official account in Chinese media platform Weibo. The image reads “Full Screen 3.0” along with an outline of the smartphone. We can safely assume the borderless device has passed the manufacturing stage and on the verge of unveiling. It is speculated that the selfie camera is being placed at the top of the display in the middle, akin to the Essential PH-1 which has somewhat a smaller notch. A notch also means the company joins the list of Android smartphone manufacturers following the notch design of last year’s Apple iPhone X.
The device is speculated to be the Nubia Z18 flagship which is speculated to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 8 GB RAM. Currently, there is no information about the price or availability of the smartphone. The predecessor Z17 and Z11 were launches in the month of June so we can expect the smartphone to hit the markets by this month or the next.
