Nubia's dual-display handset surfaces with a bezel-less front screen and a useable rear display?
A video found in China on the Weibo messaging site reportedly shows off a Nubia dual-display handset with a bezel-less display on the front of the phone. A second full-function screen can be found on the back of the device. Unlike last year's Meizu Pro 7, which features a small second screen on the back of the device, the Nubia handset has a rear screen that weighs in at more than 4-inches. The regular front display could be larger than 5.5-inches and features an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Because the back screen on the Nubia phone is 4-inches or larger, it can be used to view the same exact things that you would find on the front screen. The small back display on the Meizu Pro 7 only shows the weather and notifications. Another advantage of having a full-function rear screen is that a front-facing selfie camera is not necessary. This allows the phone to be produced without a notch in the front. There is a dual camera setup on the back, which can be used to snap selfies. The rear display can be employed as a viewfinder for self-portraits. This phone does feature a fingerprint scanner, but it is not on the display. Instead, the biometric reader is found on the side of the phone.

There is no word on whether this video is legit, and if so, when or if this dual-display handset will be released. At the top of this article is a pair of screenshots from the video with the back of the phone on the left, and the front display on the right.

While the big non innovative players are a sleep the competitors are innovating.

Samsung got a foldable display device coming in 2 months. Hell, it has already been shown to some. That's not innovation from a major company? Lmao

Not really. A rear screen means no notch because you don't need a front camera. If you like crap designs like notch, then there's nothing more to say.

One of the weirdest concepts I've seen. Could be a nice solution. I think it would've been better if designed like the old xperia z5 where the back is perfectly symmetrical to the front so it doesn't feel like you're looking at the back of the phone.
