Nowadays, more smartphone manufacturers tend to implement the display notch design by reducing the typical bezel design on the top of the smartphone. The trend was been initially brought up by the Andy Rubin’s Essential smartphone company and then followed by Apple in their iPhone X. Many of the Chinese manufacturers including Huawei have already started working on their smartphones with a chin on the top edge, filled with sensors and front camera. Now, the Chinese manufacturer ZTE Corporation to seems to be entering the trend, on their subsidiary brand Nubia Technology. The latest patent application from ZTE reveals the complete design pattern of the supposed final product. The smartphone is said to be the upcoming Nubia Z19 flagship.
The patent application files were found on SIPO (State Intellectual Property Office), the Chinese Patent Office website. The images embedded in the document reveals the smartphone design schematics and a render. The model number of the alleged device is NUBIA NX606J. Both the images leaked says clearly about the smartphone look. At a glance, it is obvious that the ZTE Corporation, on the behalf of Nubia Technology, patents for an existing design pattern, but there must be something that is to be considered unique. The device has an arc-shaped mini notch on the top edge of the display, holds the front-facing camera, resembles Essential PH-1. It is quite sure that the display panel is of aspect ratio 18:9.
On the rear, the device has dual-camera module mounted at the top left edge, with the glass panel on elsewhere. The fingerprint scanner placed at the same old position, as in the older nubia smartphones. The side-bezels are too narrow to compare with other smartphones. Still, it is uncertain about the release date or other details of the ZTE Nubia Z19 (NX606J).
