The Nubia Alpha smartwatch, made by Chinese telecom company ZTE, will make its commercial debut at MWC in Barcelona next month. According to a post on the Weibo social network, the device, which has a bent OLED-display will be made commercially available after the show.
The device has been shown at different trade shows earlier, such as the IFA in Berlin last september. It’s quite a chunky beast, not as slick as an Apple Watch or Android Smartwatch. What differentiates it from the market leaders is the flexible display which stretches 180 degrees around the wrist.
It’s not clear what operating system the watch will run. It won’t be Android, as demo devices on trade shows were unable to run Android apps. The device had built-in apps though for workout tracking, answering phone calls, controlling music and such.
