The Nubia Alpha is A Smartphone for Your Wrist

It is another take with the flexible display

If you want to channel your inner Dick Tracy with a watch that can do a lot, Nubia has (somewhat) figured that out with the Alpha smartwatch. Powered by a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB storage, the Alpha’s main feature is its flexible 4-inch OLED display with a tall resolution of 960 x 192. Keeping the lights on is a 500mAh battery, which Nubia claims can last a day or two.

Aside from running a custom OS, the Alpha has features motion gestures and AIM (Air Interaction Mechanics) for using the smartwatch without the need for physically interacting with the display. It also comes with a 5-megapixel f/2.2 camera in case you want to take quick snaps on the go (or if you are on a spy mission).

The Alpha will come both in a WiFi/Bluetooth-only and WiFi/Bluetooth+4G version, with the latter sporting an eSIM. It is made in stainless steel, and you can choose between black and gold (it is 18k gold plated if you ask).

The WiFi/Bluetooth version costs 450 Euros(~Php 26.6k) and is available only in black. The eSIM model will be 550 Euros(~Php 32.5k) for the black version and 650 Euros(~Php 38.4k) for the gold version. It will be available in China starting April, with wider availability later on.
