The physical keyboard on mobile devices has seemingly gone out of fashion in favor of touchscreen alternatives, but the F(x)tec Pro 1 smartphone aims to change this with a distinctly modernized design. The smartphone hides a full QWERTY keyboard under the display that can be revealed with a simple slide and will make taking notes or answering messages a cinch. The angled design of the device will position the screen towards the user in a landscape manner to give it a more ergonomic feel and functionality.
The F(x)tec Pro 1 smartphone runs Android Pie and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with an oct-core Kryo 280 CPU. The device was showcased by the brand at Mobile World Congress 2019 and is positioned for a June 2019 launch at a cost of $649.
