The world’s first borderless smartphone. The Arc Refractive Conduction technology created by Nubia has already made a breakthrough in the field of LCD processing. The inevitable edges around the LCD panels are visually hidden to create an infinite visual effect on the bordered LCD and allow users to truly get rid of the visual bondage of black edges on traditional smartphones. The Frame Interactive Technology was developed by Nubia. Most operations can be achieved by holding or sliding on the edges of the phone with one hand. The highly-customized functions include screen light-up, volume / brightness adjustment, screenshots, app background cleanup, etc.
