    I just got an ad (not here) for this device:
    Passport-like phone with Android - but not from BlackBerry - The Unihertz Titan.-1562900533-44469760-768x509-icons-2.jpg

    It seems to be an upcoming Kickstarter project. The device is going to be called "Titan" by company "Unihertz". Kickstarter backers may get this for $199, it said. Didn't find a MSRP. Just wanted to put this up for discussion.

    Wow, that thing looks... awesome!

    I think I even know what icon pack they used for this render.

    As I've never used it, no. But they seem to have managed the pre-sales of the other Unihertz phones, too.

    Also, on https://www.ogadget.com/ it says "44% off launch", which would mean the MSRP is going to be around $360.

    Wow, for some reason I missed that part.

    6000mAh is gonna make it way too heavy

    Btw, the inspiration from the Passport and BB10 is so blatant, look at the middle render image with the Hub message and Slate font lol

    Remains to be seen if this ends up like the usual crowdfunded smartphone. Their last try at a smartphone was even more niche.

    Yes Passport supports Android 4.3 on the Runtime... and there were those Android test devices. There has been some talke about Android supporting a 1x1 screen... but these looks more like like a different format than 1x1.

    Other than the weight, this should excite a few Passport lovers...

    It also shows you can waterproof a PKB....

    Wonder if the center fingerprint reader is a trackpad too?

    Has the old BlackBerry keyboard smile too.... it almost screams for some legal attention from BB.

    Blackberry is not trying at all if this device become reality. In this forum always tech savvy kept on saying it's not possible, in addition they're going to implement ip67.

    I guessed blackberry will sue them if they implementing ip67 in pkb device too.

    Very interesting device. It looks more like Passports younger, rougher and wilder sibling.

    One would think leaving in an actual BB10 screenshot (as noted already) would also wake up BB legal.

    Or at least claim to.

    Yeah they're definitely calling for Chen's attention.

    I mean, it's got chrome frets, a fingerprint sensor that looks like an optical trackpad, a wallpaper that resembles BB10's stock one, and a render of the BB10 hub.

    It looks - and says - squared screen. Didn't people here always say that you can't have a square screen running android? Passport-like phone with Android - but not from BlackBerry - The Unihertz Titan.-screenshot_20190712-220130_samsung-20internet.jpeg

    The teaser page makes no claims of being Google certified, which if it isn't, means that things like Google Pay won't work. Also I would imagine that a lack of Google certification would make it a no-go as a BYOD phone as any MDM software would reject it.

    There's a big gap between what a Kickstarter phone can get away with and what a big company can get away with. Speccing out hardware is easy. Making it all work in an optimal way is much harder and much more expensive. Software and driver optimization is the key to a good experience.
