  • Design 8 / 10

Consumer electronics company ZTE recently unveiled an eye-popping tablet that displays glasses-free 3D visuals. Called the Nubia Pad 3D, this futuristic device wows users with its immersive three-dimensional display.

Specs and Performance

Powering the 12.4-inch tablet is Qualcomm's fast Snapdragon 888 chip. This ensures snappy performance when viewing 3D photos or videos. The Nubia Pad 3D also packs a generous 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. On paper, it has the specs to handle intensive 3D graphics smoothly.

Innovative 3D Display

But the tablet's marquee feature is clearly its glasses-free 3D screen. Using advanced stereoscopic technology, it beams 3D visuals that practically leap out of the display. Users can view 3D videos, play 3D games, and even take their own 3D photos. The 3D effect is both crisp and immersive.

AI Conversion Powers 3D

Additionally, built-in AI converts regular 2D videos into 3D in real time. This instantly turns any standard 2D content into an eye-popping 3D experience. Friends will surely ooh and ahh when they slap on a 3D video and watch objects float midair.

Premium Design

The Nubia impresses in other ways too. Its squat body is carved from glass and aluminum for a premium look and feel. Four loud speakers pump out expansive stereo sound for gaming or video watching. And the large 9070mAh battery should deliver all-day endurance for on-the-go use.


But while the ZTE tablet excels at 3D, it does fall short in a few areas. At $1200, it commands a lofty price. And beyond its preloaded apps, available 3D content is still sparse. Software bugs also occasionally disrupt the 3D effects. But early reviews praise the tablet's 3D capabilities despite these drawbacks.

Bottom Line

By cramming innovative glasses-free 3D into a power-packed tablet, ZTE may have created a new niche. While priced high, the novelty and enjoyment of its immersive 3D experience is winning over initial skeptics. For any gadget lover captivated by the futuristic dream of holographic displays, the ZTE Nubia Pad 3D brings that vision dazzlingly near.
