The Nubia Alpha (or Nubia α) offer a mobile experience completely innovative and ..strange. Essentially, it is a watch connected that the display extends to the strap, it claims to supplant your smartphone. Here’s everything we know about this hybrid smartphone/watch connected.
When will be released the Nubia Alpha ?.
The output of Nubia Alpha will be phased in depending on the model and region. The model with a connection only Bluetooth will be launched in black, from the month of April in China, the United States and Europe.
If you want his version of the eSIM, which will allow you to make calls without connecting to your phone, then you’ll have to wait, at least, the third quarter of 2019.
How much will it cost the Nubia Alpha ?.
The price of course depends also on the model you choose. The one with Bluetooth will cost 449 €, which is rather high. If you want the version eSIM in black, so, the price goes up to 549 €, and gold-plated 18K, it will be 649 €.
That brings the Nubia Alpha ?.
The most striking feature of the Nubia is its design, worked in collaboration with Visionox. It has a screen OLED flexible 4-inch which makes the turn of your wrist. Its screen is embedded in a body made from stainless steel or 18 carat gold, if you opt for this variant), with meshes made of metal. The Nubia is resistant to water and heat.
The operating system of the Alpha is awesome, you can control this gadget hybrid, using voice commands and gestures, in order not to clutter the screen with icons.
Nubia says that the operating system is infinitely customizable and that it offers a whole new way to interact with what’s closest to our hearts, but we expect to have it tested to confirm what point you can the personify, and to what extent it is intuitive.
The Nubia cannot be considered as a gadget or notebook without a slew of sensors that would track all aspects of your life. It monitors your heart rate, tracks your sleep, your physical activities and more.
It has the air of being a shows connected extraordinary, but what is it that has made it a phone ? Thanks to the technology eSIM, to the Bluetooth connection and Wi-Fi, it allows you to send SMS, make calls and access the Internet without having to associate it with a smartphone.
This is not the first gadget portable to offer support eSIM, but it is certainly the first one who claims it does not require a telephone.
One of the most used features on modern smartphones is the camera, and the Nubihas also thought. The Alpha has a module of 5 Mp built-in to side of the screen. It can be enabled with a simple swipe, or flick, however, its usefulness remains to be seen..
All this is well and good, but that is what makes the Nubia Alpha ? You will not find bullet standard smartphone, but the Snapdragon Wear 2100 Qualcomm, with 1 Gb of RAM and 8 Gb of storage space.
It is to be noted that its chip is since outdated, it reminds us that it has been launched for the first time in February 2016. We ask, then, why Nubia is not equipped with the processor the latest, the Snapdragon Wear 3100.
All of this certainly seems interesting, but we are not convinced that the Nubia Alpha is going to completely replace our smartphone. Not yet, in any case..
