Smartwatches are becoming the thing of the past, say hello to the wearable folding smartphone, Nubia Alpha. Featured at the Mobile World Congress in February. The latest wearable gadget is all set to bang the Smartphone market. It will be launched in China first on Wednesday, April 10th, and then is expected to reach the other markets soon.
Developed by Nubia in collaboration with Visionox, The Nubia Alpha wearable smartphone is equipped with a 4.01-inch flexible OLED display that wraps itself around the wrist. With a curved and somewhat flexible screen, a larger screen can easily be wrapped to any wrist while still maintaining a good fit. The screen offers an aspect ratio of 36:9 and supports a resolution of 960 x 192 pixels.

The wearable comes with a 500mAh battery.
