Nubia Launches Visually Borderless Z9 Smartphone

Nubia Launches Visually Borderless Z9 Smartphone

Sick of your phone screen actually having edges? The latest high end Android phone out of China looks amazing.

The flagship devicewas unveiled yesterday at a fashion show in New York. The screen still technically has a very thin edge, so how good the nubia Z9 really is in person remains to be seen. But you know what, I want one. A lot.

The Samsung S6 Edge started the trend, and here at Gizmodo we loved it. After using Dell’s new infinity display it’s hard to go back to a normal screen.

The nubia Z9 uses a 5.2 inch 10920 x 1080 screen that runs right to the edges of the phone. It also uses the Snapdragon 810 chipset, has a 16MP camera with OIS, a 2900 mAh battery and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop.

It can also use the edge of the phone and screen to control a range of different things, such as snapping a picture, swiping through images or playing a game.

The phone comes in three versions — Classic, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, for $735 (US $564). The Elite has 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and costs $840 (US$645). The Exclusive has the same specs but adds a fingerprint reader and costs $945 (US $725).

It won’t be available till later in the year (and no Australian release date is given). Until then, check it out in action below.
