The Chinese manufacturer Unihertz revives the Blackberry times. The Unihertz Titan Slim is the third smartphone from the company that uses a physical keyboard after the Titan and the Titan Pocket. As always, the Titan Slim is also financed via crowdfunding on the Kickstarter platform.
Unihertz Titan Slim launches on Kickstarter
Unlike the previous models, the Unihertz Titan Slim relies on a classic, elongated format for the display and looks very similar to a normal smartphone. With the exception that there is a full-fledged physical keyboard below the screen.
There is even a kind of touchpad in the center of the upper row, which serves as a fingerprint sensor in the other models of the Titan series. It is not yet known whether the Slim will be as robust as its brothers.
Thus, compared to the Titan and Titan Pocket, one offers a significantly larger screen area. The manufacturer has not yet revealed concrete details about the Titan Slim. But the smartphone is supposed to be so thin that it can be comfortably typed and held with one hand. In return, the device looks a bit longer compared to most normal smartphones due to the keyboard.
The smartphone will be financed via crowdfunding on the Kickstarter platform, as is normal for Unihertz. Details about the start of the campaign are not yet available, but it should start soon. Whether there will be a German QWERTY layout in addition to the QERTY format probably depends on the backers.
