First unveiled at IFA 2018, the Nubia Alpha’s latest prototypes sport a four-inch, 960×192 OLED display, which is currently the “largest wearable flexible screen in the industry,” according to Visionox, the screen’s manufacturer, and it’s protected by a heat-resistant polymer called Polyimide. It features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, Bluetooth, WiFi, 4G eSIM support, a 5-megapixel camera, and a 500mAH battery, good for between one and two days on a single charge.

“The Alpha also doubles as a fitness tracker with basic sleep, exercise and heart rate monitoring. All of these features will be accessible from a “custom-made wearable OS” that supports voice commands, multi-touch and finnicky air gestures. It will be sold in three different versions: a black, Bluetooth-only model for €449 ($510 USD), a black 4G eSim variant for €549 ($623 USD) and a 4G eSim alternative coated in 18-karat gold for €649 (roughly $737 USD). At least one of these models will have a staggered release worldwide in 2019,” according to Engadget.
