Nubia has bridged the gap between wearable and smartphone with the Nubia Alpha, a device with all the features and functionality of a phone but which wraps around the wrist like a fitness band.
There are two versions of the device launching – Bluetooth and eSIM models, with the latter available in a gold variety. The Bluetooth model will launch for €449 (roughly $510, £390, AU$710) in Europe, North America and China, sometime in the second quarter of the year.
The eSIM versions will be available a little later, releasing in April in China followed by a crypic “Q3” for Europe and “Q4” for North America. The black version will cost €549 (around $620, £475, AU$870), and for the 18K gold finish you’ll be paying €649 (about $740, £560, AU$1,030).
