At Mobile World Congress, F(x)tec, a London-based startup dedicated to bringing back and making better well-loved features missing in current mobile phones and related devices, unveiled its first product, the Pro1, a new premium unlocked Android smartphone with a sliding and angled landscape QWERTY keyboard.
Focusing on consumers who both desire and share a passion for a refined smartphone experience, the privately funded company is developing products for individuals who miss mobile phone technology from the past and now relish the opportunity to re-engage with and enjoy features that never had the opportunity to reach their full potential.
“At F(x)tec, our vision of the ideal smartphone blends a modern handset with the very best features and technology we loved and miss, to create a perfectly balanced package that is delightful, functional, and unique. Our goal is to be the best at bringing back our favourite technology, making it better in a more modern way – that’s technology refined. ” said Adrian Li Mow Ching, founder and director, F(x)tec.
The Pro1 is equipped with a landscape QWERTY keyboard with five staggered rows and a sliding mechanism inspired by the classic Nokia E7 and N950. The slider tilts the screen to a 155 degree angle for optimal viewing. Thanks to a unique and innovative key design, the keyboard provides responsive, tactile feedback with each keystroke.
