Another render of what's said to be Nubia's upcoming bezel-less smartphone surfaced online on Sunday, depicting a thin handset with small top and bottom bezels and almost no side bezels. The device shown in the newly leaked render is seemingly identical to the one that surfaced online last week and presumably has the same origin seeing how the two handsets even feature similar lock screens. While depicting the device in its entirety, the latest leak is partially redacted and therefore not completely revealing, though it does indicate that the mysterious smartphone boasts a circular red capacitive Home key that's a hallmark of handsets created by the Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer. The render also shows what may be a volume up button or the top of a volume rocker on the right side of the device's body.
While some of the recently leaked renders indicate that the Shenzhen, China-based phone vendor is working on a bezel-less device that's somewhat similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, the company is seemingly not copying Samsung's design language seeing how both renders of the alleged Nubia-branded device show a screen that seems to feature a standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Likewise, the top bezel of the phone is approximately twice slimmer than the bottom one, presumably because the latter is meant to house a capacitive Home button, which is yet another difference between the device that can be seen above and Samsung's latest Android flagship series. Both renders of the mysterious Nubia handset that have been revealed so far show a smartphone with a black glossy finish which may be one of the available color variants of the device, provided that it actually exists and hits the market at some point in the future.
The Chinese original equipment manufacturer (OEM) is currently expected to launch the Nubia Z17 on Thursday, June 1. The company's upcoming flagship likely isn't the one shown here as numerous previous leaks suggested that the Nubia Z17 will sport a more conventional design. An update on Nubia's other future products including their availability and pricing is expected to follow in the coming months.
