    Post Nubia Alpha: The Right Idea Done Wrong

    Shenzhen-based Nubia Technology is, according to Tom's Guide, set to make their new smartwatch, the Nubia-α, official at 6:00pm local time on Monday, February 25th at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

    The good news: its flexible display is perfectly suited for a wristwatch.
    The bad news: baby's got some serious love handles over here.

    I'm only guessing but I'd be willing to bet that the evolution of its design went something like this: When it was decided that this thing would run a modified version of Android it became necessary to stick an enormous battery behind the screen. Someone said: "Hey, I bet we can hide that battery a bit by sticking a camera onto it", then someone else added: "Ooh, and if we put a SIM card slot in it the user could make video calls". And so the changes were made, without ever consulting the display team so that they could maybe, you know, make the screen a little wider?

    Check out this Mr. Mobile video to see how little the Alpha's design has changed since its first appearance behind glass at IFA last fall:



    If you're a wearable tech enthusiast like me, be thankful that your current smartwatch doesn't look anything like this.

    Intersting but not the prettiest concept.
