Nubia’s gaming smartphone concepts were shown off at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, and now some additional renders surfaced. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll be able to see two different designs of Nubia’s gaming smartphone, both of which were shown off at MWC 2018 (in addition to a third one whose render was shown off earlier). We were able to take some images of the back sides of concepts that Nubia showed off, so if you’re interested in checking that out, click here.
That being said, Nubia’s gaming smartphone concepts were not functional, and all we were able to see are back sides of those three concepts. Well, thanks to these newly-surfaced renders, you can get a better look at two out of three concepts, and these renders even show what the front side of one of those concepts looks like. These phones look rather odd, futuristic if you will, but it’s worth noting that these are only concept designs, and it is possible that they never become official. The first image down below shows a phone which seems to have LED indicators on the back, while the second image lets you take a look at a phone which offers a really odd-looking back side. That handset seems to be made out of metal, while it has some sort of a grippy material thrown in there as well. The first concept sports a single camera on the back, while the second comes with a dual camera setup.
Nubia’s General Manager, Ni Fei, said in early February that the company is working on a gaming smartphone, though that is all the info that he shared. We’ve talked to Nubia at MWC 2018, but we were unable to get an estimate as to when will the company release its gaming smartphone, as it seems like a date still hasn’t been set, or anything of the sort. Several other smartphone manufacturers are said to be working on gaming smartphones, and all that started (rumors and reports) when Razer released its gaming handset, the Razer Phone. Nubia’s gaming smartphone will probably be fueled by the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC, and it will probably ship with 8GB of RAM on the inside, though we’re only guessing at this point.
