For some time it has been said that in Nubia they are working on a folding mechanism that can reach this very mobile world congress in Barcelona. A device that opposed the already represented by its competitors, such as Galaxy Fold or Huawei Mate X, and it finally came true, but not in the way we expected. Nubia introduced her new Nubia Alpha in Barcelona, a folding smart clock that is not only connected but also functions as an autonomous clock.
Because yes, we are talking about a folding device. In this case, a clock that can be placed around our wrist and adapts to our contour, becomes a tactile bracelet with intelligent functions. So much that it brings a customized operating system inside it and we can even record video with it. No doubt, the most futuristic smart watch we can see now, but that has nothing to do with the future: Nubia Alpha is present.
This is the new folding Nubia Alpha
As we said, we are in front of our wrist with a collapsible screen. The smart clock with the whole law, although Nubia recommends that it be also called a smartphone, because what it is about is a watch, it can work completely autonomously, without a mobile phone depending or connect.
The flexible 4-inch screen, subjected to endurance tests over 100,000 times
The new Nubia Alpha offers us a 4.01-inch flexible OLED screen that, according to Nubia, has 230% more surface than usual watches we can find on the market. Especially because the flexible screen has a panoramic aspect ratio which allows us to expand the information about it. The Nubian account that the screen is built up to eleven layers to ensure its robustness and durability.
The new Nubia Alpha includes all the operating system features that Nubia has developed for her and which includes a voice assistant to a variety of connectivity options, something we'll do both through Bluetooth and WiFi, and we'll have second option with eSIM this will allow us to have mobile data in every situation.
In addition to the screen movements themselves, Nubia Alpha includes a camera that will allow us not only to take pictures of it, but also to record videoOr store it or send it via messaging or social networking apps. 5-megapixel camera with a 82º wide-angle lens and a f / 2.2 aperture with which we can even make video calls.
Snapdragon Wear 2100 and 500mAh
The Nubia Alpha's brain is Snapdragon Wear 2100 and is accompanied by 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal capacity. The battery is 500 mAh and must stand up to two days' wait, although we probably would have to charge it daily. That's why we'll have a quick refill, by the way.
With the Snapdragon Wear 2100, Nubia Alpha has a Bluetooth version and another with eSIM
Nubia Alpha also includes several sensors that will allow us to develop various monitored activities. How to play sports or measure the quality of our sleep, as well as measure heart rate thanks to the sensors inside the Alpha. The Nubia Alpha has dust and water protection and its screen resilience has been tested by testing more than 100,000 fold tests. The body is made of stainless steel and we can do it in black and gold. In fact, it's an 18-carat gold finish,
We still do not know about the price of this Nubia Alpha in both versions, Bluetooth and eSIM, or in its version in 18-carat gold. We also do not know when it will be available or on what markets it will be placed on the market. We will be cautious about future news about what is now a smart clock with the most attractive design we can find.
