Nubia Sends Out Invites For The Wearable Phone Launch
Nubia earlier confirmed that it will launch a flexible device at the Mobile World Congress(MWC) on February 25. More details about the device have surfaced as Nubia has sent out invites for the event. The event will see the launch of the Nubia Alpha, a foldable wearable phone that can be tied around the wrist.
The event’s uses a tagine “Flex your Life”. It also shows a device with a flexible display. It wasn’t clear what kind of flexible device we could expect, earlier when Nubia made the announcement, but the graphic on the official invitation resembles the shape of a display. The Nubia announcement shows up after companies like Samsung and Huawei have already announced that they will showcase a foldable smartphone at the MWC. Those announcements will both arrive before the Nubia event.
Nubia Alpha: The Future?
The Nubia Alpha was shown as a concept back in August. It was a smart wearable that can be tied around a wrist. Nubia didn’t reveal anything about the device and it wasn’t even available to be tried out back then. But it seems that the company is ready with the device and it may be available soon. While the specs of it aren’t known, the Alpha in the trailer looks like a smartphone on the wrist, making the use of a tall, flexible OLED display for its flexible needs. It might also have a Type-C port for charging and a single camera on the front.

The device may end up looking different than what was shown at the IFA as it was a concept back then. The flexible wearable idea looks to make a compelling case for flexible smartphones and may end up actually proving to be useful. The pricing and availablity of the Nubia Alpha isn’t known yet, but we won’t have to wait long to find out more about the device.
