On the afternoon of September 5, the Nubia Z18 flagship was released in Beijing.
The biggest highlight of the machine is the design of the borderless water drop screen. The official name is ‘Full Screen 3.0’, which is inspired by the natural form of water droplets. The machine is equipped with an aRC4.0 borderless technology. The screen size is 6 inches and it’s supplied by JDI. The resolution is 2160×1080 pixels. The aspect ratio of the screen is 18:9.

The back uses a 3D curved glass body, which is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass. It provides two colors of night black and nebula red. The curved glass polished by a new process by six super-fine surfaces and then strengthened to form a perfect curved glass. Then, an anti-fingerprint coating is added to the surface of the glass through an electroplating process, thereby achieving such luster on the body.
