One way to remove the front-facing camera but still have selfies is to have a secondary screen on the back. That’s what the ZTE subsidiary nubia did with their latest flagship Nubia X that was introduced last week.
The phone was announced for sale in three colors and with three memory configurations and all 100,000 units were gone in under a minute.
With a post on Weibo, nubia boasted about ending the first flash sale in just 57 seconds. It is planning to do a second one, scheduled for exactly at midnight on November 11, also known as Global Shopping Festival Day in China.
The prices of the nubia X are expected to stay the same – CNY3,299 ($473) for the 6/64 GB version; the 8/128 GB configuration is CNY3,699 ($530); the most expensive variant is 8/256 GB for CNY4,199 ($602). These are the prices for the Deep Gray and Black Gold options, the Sea Light Blue is CNY100 more, or about $15.
