The notch on smartphones has been the bane of our existence for some ever since last year. Unfortunately, that seems to be the only solution for the ever growing screen ratios on smartphones. Or so we thought, until Arstechnica.com reported about the Nubia X, that decided the only way to remove the notch is to remove the front selfie camera altogether. While this would illicit many gasps of surprise to many selfie enthusiasts all over the world, rest assured that you will still be able to take endless selfies with this smartphone still.

While there are only 16MP + 24MP dual rear cameras on the back, there is now a viewfinder screen on the back as well. Tech specs are impressive with a 6.26 inch, 2280x1080 LCD display and with the notch now gone, it has a 93.6 percent screen to phone ratio. Meanwhile, the viewfinder is a 5.1 inches, 1520x720 OLED display. It runs on Snapdragon 845, with 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 3800mAh battery capacity, and Android 8.1 Oreo. The device is now available for purchase in China for 3299 CNY (1986 MYR). 

The Nubia X isn’t the first phone to introduce an innovative way to remove the notch from smartphones. OPPO created the Oppo Find X, which has a motorized top that can flip the camera forward and back, the vivo Nex with its little pop up camera, and Xiaomi's sliding phone, the Mi Mix 3. The Meizu Pro 7 had a similar concept albeit with a smaller and oddly placed screen on the left side of the back of the phone.

To date, this is the most expensive way to remove a notch from your phone. So far, there is no official Malaysia release date for this device yet. What do you guys think? Is this way the most efficient way to purge notches from your smartphones? Stay tuned to TechNave.com for more tech news.
